    Ultimate Trekking Adventure-Everest Base Camp, Nepal Part 2

    in Travel

    Excerpts from "Ultimate Trekking Adventure-Everest Base Camp, Nepal Part 2


    Having completed one of the toughest days of the trek it was time to move back onto the busy trail to Everest Base Camp. 


    The trail from Lobuche to Gorakshep is only about 5 kilometers but at an average elevation of over 5000 meters it is still challenging, especially when you have a hill to traverse like this one.


    This is one of the most spectacular panoramas in the entire Himalaya with more up close views of Nuptse. And you’re last look at mighty  Everest in the center  before descending further down into the Khumbu Glacier.


    Finally you find yourself putting in the last steps to the Base Camp marker at 5360 meters. This was the year that 16 Sherpa guides lost their lives in an avalanche on the Khumbu Icefall. All Everest mountain guides had refused to work the rest of the season out of respect for the victims.  


    It’s power is best described though in a quote from American filmmaker, climber and 5 time Everest summiter David Brashears. “The mountain doesn’t care whether we’re here or not. It doesn’t compete with us. It isn’t burdened by our hopes and dreams. Everything it means to us is only what we bring to it. It’s what the mountain reveals about us that has any lasting value.”

    Cindy Abbott on her "Banner on the Moon" Everest to Sled Dogs and Back Again

    in Entertainment

    For me, just the mention of Cindy Abbott, turns me into a bit of a giddy fan. Understand that it isn't entirely that she is one in 40 women in the USA to have ever summitted Mount Everest, or that she finished the Iditarod on her third try, taking the Red Lantern.  It isn't even really that she is the only woman to do both of these things. You see, she has a rare disease called Wegener's granulomatosis, and it was during training for her Everest climb that she was finally diagnosed after 14 years of fighting an enemy with no name. 


    So, what do you do when you are told you've got a rare and incurable disease? Well, according to Cindy, whether you ascend 29,029 feet on Everest, or you take a team of dogs and do 1049 miles to Nome, you just DO IT. Cindy made the decision to FIGHT. And fight she did. She decided to advocate and educate for NORD, or the National Organization for Rare Disorders, run the "Greatest Race on Earth," climb that rather big hill and continue to be a professor at California State at Fullerton. 


    There is a film about her that is finally finished after four long years in production that will be appearing in festivals this year, called Banner on the Moon. That banner of course is her NORD banner which she takes with her everywhere, and quite frankly, the moon would have to be the next stop for this lady. 


    On a personal note, and why I am so very passionate about speaking with her, is that I too battle a disease. Cindy has been a personal hero to me. So having this opportunity to talk sled dogs and how they've been a positive influence on her, as they have me, will be a highlight of my life. And I do hope that no matter who you are and what you do with dogs, that you too will find this amazing woman to be a source of inspiration unbound, and an example of the strength we all have hidden inside us, waiting for our dogs to show us where to find it.

    Sir Francis Younghusband - Soldier and Mystic

    in Radio

    On Thursday February 4th, 2016 The Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon
    will present a discussion on the fascinating military and occult career
    of Lt.Colonel Sir Francis Edward Younghusband (1863-1942) the conqueror
    of Tibet (1904) and the author of several books on travel, adventure and
    mystical philosophy. Colonel Younghusband was an officer in British
    Special forces in India during a cold war between the British and the
    Russians for control of the Central Asian highlands north of India in
    the latter days of the 19th century. Their covert conflict was called
    "The Great Game" and was the stage for high adventure. Rudyard Kipling
    novelized "The Great Game" in Kim. In 1904 Lord Curson the Viceroy of
    India sent Colonel Younghusband up into Tibet with an invading British
    army to flush out the Russians whom Curson was convinced had infiltrated
    the mysterious country. After slaughtering the primitive Tibetan army,
    Younghusband took Lhasa but could not find a single Cossack, or even a
    Russian rifle, However he did stay long enough to have a mystical
    experience that transformed him from a ruthless conqueror into a
    peaceful mystical philosopher. He retired to England to write books
    about his adventures and his visions, which included life on other
    planets, a philosophy of free love, a spiritual drama society and an
    expedition to climb Mt. Everest. -- If you want to spend an hour with
    the Colonel, tune in and we'll hit the trail going up.
