    • Thanks for asking Jeff! We had an amazing time. I convinced my wife (I think) to compile some photos and a story for the blog. She wrote down every penny we spent, and she was the chief photographer. In total, we cycled 800km and by the time we were halfway through, we had climbed more vertical feet than the difference between sea level and the tip of Mt. Everest. At times, it was really tough. But as tough things often are, it was rewarding. Thanks again for asking about this. I'm going to give my wife a gentle nudge. It would be a fun piece!

      Cheers,

      Andrew

        In 2010 I climbed Mt.Kilimanjaro, which is about 9500' less than Everest so I can appreciate what you did. That trip was tough as well but I wouldn't trade the memories for anything. Sounds like an interesting trip, I look forward to the article, c'mon Pele your turn!

        Cheers

        Jeff
