After 37 years of dreaming, training and preparing, I’m going to attempt Mount Everest.

From reading my first Everest book at age 15, through three decades of climbing high, snowy peaks around the globe, I’ve steered myself toward the summit of Mount Everest.

Gradually, I’ve compiled the skills, judgment and knowledge needed to climb Everest responsibly and respectfully.

Now, I am off to Nepal!  A mountainous load of learning looms ahead. There will be hard-won lessons on:

  • Setbacks and success
  • Engagement and execution
  • Resolve and resilience
