Into Thin Air   Leave a comment

so last night while flipping through the channels of the TV (we have about ninety stations and I couldn’t find anything to watch)  I stumbled upon the weather channel airing a movie titled “Into Thin Air” it was about a group of climbers climbing Mt Everest.
Based on this true story I watched how they all struggled with getting to the summit.
All ten made it, however on the way down a storm blew in and five of them died on the way down.
I have no idea if it was really filmed on Everest.
It looked like it was.
I have the book and with the pictures in it and other pictures I have of Everest, it looked like the real thing.

I use to, in my younger more ambitious days, want to try and climb Everest.
But the older I get and the more research I do on it, I realize I would never make it.
I am not that physically fit and even if I did get there physically, I just can’t imagine putting myself in that much pain to be on the top of the world.

Call me lazy……..I just can’t see doing what these people did in temps at negative  one hundred degrees

I hate being cold…..in Iowa.
Just can’t imagine it there.
Nor do I want to.

Still I do admire those who put forth the effort.
