I'm with you...I cannot comprehend the stupidity of these Everest guys. I'm not even clear why the Kims were out in the forest to begin with? Thanks, but I'll take urban/suburban life any day. I am so not a camper!


There was an interesting article in the British Good Housekeeping about a famous woman climber who lost her life in a climb and left behind two little children and her husband. The article spoke about the level of selfishness necessary to reach that level of skill in climbing and the husband was very philosophical about his loss, "She died doing what she loved," he said. I would feel the same way as you, what was she thinking? Then again, everyone has their priorities for which they are willing to sacrifice an enormous amount. Still, I am glad not to be a climber or married to one!
