It appears we might have a new definition of 'epic'.
And being "fueled by a single digestive biscuit" I might make it out of the rack.
And how do you survive, let alone avoid thrombosis, for three days at that
altitude without water?
Amazing epic to say the least. I wasn't going to read this at first, heard enough about old guys ruling already.
The name Cathy O'Dowd was too familiar. Why? Because I have this video burned on my ipod, called the Dark Side of Everest. It's a great movie on youtube by the way. O'Dowd is portrayed as a gumby, part of a group that wouldn't help with rescue efforts because they too would have needed a rescue, or even lend them their radio. Then she's walking by these dying people left and right, on her way uphill. Maybe an unfair portrayal but she will have a hard time living it down.
