I've had so many update requests - its wonderful how many people are following Trevor's journey!

The past couple of days have been so exciting! In case you missed it, Trevor's team successfully reached the summit of Mt. Everest at 3:45 AM on Saturday (Friday at 3:15 PM...

The skies cleared above Everest on May11th, revealing a TON of new snow on the mountain. Trevor shared this picture on Facebook when he got back down to Base Camp... Just look at all the snow they'll have to plow through!

There's a storm brewing! And you don't mess around with a storm on Everest. This video is from a South Col expedition in 2003, but it certainly paints a vivid picture of what the team would be facing if they continued...

On Sunday, Tashi and Mingma headed up the North C...

Back at Base Camp, Trevor & Tashi were joined by two climbers from Sweden. This will make for some nice company for both of them as they ascend. Maria, one of the Swedish mountaineers, is a guide herself. Always nice to have some extra experience on an expedition like...

Good news... Trevor reported that he's feeling better than he's felt since landing in Kathmandu - and that bodes well for the upcoming summit bid! Let's all keep our fingers crossed (and pray, if that's what you do) that he stays healthy.

Today, Trevor and Tashi vi...

Tashi and Trevor finally reached North Everest Base Camp (5100m). They'll camp here for 2-3 days to acclimatize and prepare for the long trip up Everest. This is a picture of their camp - and the stunning view of Everest in all her glory!

In order to climb the North sid...

Trevor and Tashi reached Xegar(4340m) yesterday afternoon, where they toured around to acclimatize and then stayed over night.

They arrived in Tingri this morning where they were welcomed by the beautiful sight of Mt.

Good news - Trevor seems to be on the mend! He managed to check in several times over the past couple of days, thanks to his Delorme inReach SE! His gout is retreating, only giving him a sharp pain from time-to-time (just to remind him it's there!). Enroute from Kathma...
