Welcome to my website! I’m someone with a huge passion for adventure and world travel. My website is currently under some serious construction, so excuse the mess! My site has 9,887 pictures (yes I keep exact track!) taken in over 90 countries from all 7 continents, including six of the Seven Summits I climbed.
I have a dream of visiting every country in the world and will try my best to share my travels!
In May 2016 I finally had an amazing opportunity to attempt Mt. Everest. Sadly the day we attempted to summit we were met with disaster, and I decided to turn around only 300 feet or less than 100 meters from the summit. In 2017 I returned to the Tibet side of the mountain, which I found to be much harder. I had a difficult expedition but on the morning of May 27th I reached the top of the world and successfully climbed Mt. Everest!
Next Three Possible Trips
It’s on! I’ll be in West Africa in less than a week from writing this. The plan isn’t really there, I’ll just show up and see what happens, but my focus will be in Guinea-Bissau and Gambia, which will put me into the 90’s as far as countries visited.!
Well I’m very disappointed to say that my trip to Iraq did not work out. I can only promise that it was not from a lack of will but things beyond my control! Now that a year has passed I can try again in early 2019…
In July 2014 I finished my quest to visit all 50 states! Now just because I’ve been to every state now doesn’t mean that I’ve seen all the country has to offer. I have a lot left to do, and look forward to continuing domestic trips. My most recent trip was back to Idaho to climb Borah Peak. I’m continuing to focus on doing the highest peak in each state, but the idea of a nice trip to Key West to get away from the cold sounds like the best idea I’ve had in a long time.
