After viewing the New York Times video this evening, I accessed the Peak Freaks Everest blog and your Web page as 2 of your 2014 prospective Everest team members are featured. I was mainly curious about your experience during the horrific time in April.
Reading your blogs and your tribute to your dear Sherpa friend who died in 2002, I came away enormously impressed with both of you.. As a couple and as individuals. Your tremendous authenticity, kindness, communication skill and perspective in general are impressive and refreshing. Your love for the culture and the Sherpa community comes through.
I trekked in the Everest region in 2004 which was one of the highlights of my life. My respect and appreciation for the Sherpa people is deep. Thank you for articulating their goodness and for your compassion.
Carry on! Best wishes to you during challenging times. One can only imagine...
I've been told that the Discovery Channel documentary on the avalanche disaster can be viewed on Youtube. I've refrained from watching it. It's important to both Tim and I to watch it together. He's almost home, one more flight to catch.
