Agenda For October 2016
- Climbing Mount Everest with Bill
talk about and appreciate the many techie devices we use based
on our activities. Ill bet you havent thought
about how the advances in technology may help in an activity
beyond our abilities, like mountain climbing!
On May 23, 2009, Bill Burke
summitted Mt. Everest from the South (Nepal) side of
the mountain. In reaching the summit at age 67, he became
the oldest American to climb the highest mountain in the world.
On May 25, 2014, at the age of 72, Bill summitted Mt. Everest
from the more challenging North (Tibet) side, thus breaking
his own record and becoming the oldest person outside of Asia
to summit Mt. Everest. Bill has also climbed the highest mountain
on every continent and is the only person to accomplish that
feat after reaching age 60.
Bill will be here to discuss his successful
North side climb of Mt. Everest and will present dramatic
photos and video of the climb. He will talk about the challenges,
risks and joys of climbing the worlds highest mountains
and will share the techniques he uses to physically and mentally
prepare for these exhausting expeditions. Bill will
also display the equipment required for an alpine mountain
Although he has climbed the highest mountain
on every continent, he will be leaving next month for another
climb! He will explain how we can follow him on the Internet.
This is not only going to be an interesting meeting but exciting
as well. You probably have friends who will also enjoy it.

better than that?

and family to come as well.
