    Anyone here summited Everest?

    It's one of my life goals. I'm not a climber, yet. What was your experience like? They're showing season 2 of Everest on Discovery, and now I can't go to sleep. I want to be up there.

    +1. Especially that Swede who biked to Everest with his gear, climbed it solo (I think w/o 02) and then biked back home. There's a challege for you guys.

    It's like the pinnacle of accomplishment in this lifetime, the highest point on earth. There is nothing more satisfying in my mind, on this earthly realm than summiting the highest mountain on earth. Look at people who in our minds are "fit". Basketball players, football players, marathon runners, whomever. None of these people are necessarily fit enough to summit everest. It takes more than 7% body fat, a good time in the 100m dash, it takes mental toughness, power of will, so much more than just being physically fit. In my mind, the pinnacle of my life would be to summit Everest. I've climbed to the top of mountains, and done long thousands of elevation hikes. I want EVEREST!

    Pheard, I don't know how to break this to you, but marriage alone does not produce bebes. Nor is it even necesarry in their production.

    Well, at least now we know why Pheard's "lovin" hasn't resulted in any weight-losing energy expenditure.

    In my high school, these moral folk were usually the pregnant ones or their boyfriends.

    God bless condoms.

    What was this thread about, again?

    Good luck is all I have to say. This will take YEARS of training. I just started bouldering(climbing) and it is intense. This is without Ice and a multiple day climb and lack of O2. I would be all for it if I had the time to train. You basically would have to put your normal life on hold to train for years. Meaning you would have to save money.

    Intense is an understatement.

    Not to mention the 40k pricetag of summiting Everest.

    I work with a guy who is about 35 years old. He is saving himself for the perfect virgin. He is a good looking guy. And he can`t keep a girl longer than 3 months. Eventually the girls loose interest and look for someone that can add more to the relationship. Don`t shoot the messenger.

    For you, special price: $20K . However, you will need to return your gear, snowsuit, ice ax, crampons, and oxygen to our summit kiosk.

    Have a nice trip down down the mountain.

    Actually, should the usages of the words "crampons" and "tampons" be reversed? Think about it.

    At the very least, "tampons" should be "tampins."

    Too bad you all don't have a women's forum to sort out these questions.
