Prepping for Mount Everest in 2015/6

Excited today because I started planning my trip to Mount Everest in 2015 or 2016 with International Mountain Guides.  Planning to attempt to make Camp 3 on the South side of the mountain and see hwo that feels before I decide whether I want to summit someday.

I have a long way to go before I’m ready for the attempt in 2015/6.  I learned many of my weaknesses on Mera Peak in April.  First, I need to cut about 75 lbs.  Good news is I have lots of time and a good game plan.  I just need to stop screwing around, stop being lazy, and start working out and eating better.

I plan to start P90X again as soon as the doctor clears my shoulder next week. That will really help as last time I lost a significant amount of weight and picked up alot of strength in the process.

I have invited about 12 friends to come with me on the trip and I’m hoping for a good turnout.  Need to call IMG to see if I can get a discount for an entire group.  Very excited to go back to Nepal and hope it’s wonderful for everyone.

Look forward to keeping you all appraised of the planning and training on my page when I set it up!

In the meantime, enjoy the video below that I made using a time lapse from a GoPro Hero3 camera at Khare.  The weather changes so fast up there!
