Thanks to all of the cooperating teachers who shared the curriculum with their classes.

Thanks to my teammates and expedition staff.

    Hi TA,

    I followed your adventure on Everest very closely. You are an amazing individual.

    Enjoy your Summer expedition to Labrador.

    Ed and I have been following your posts ever since you left. Good judgment on your returning early. HAPE and HACE are no afflictions to take lightly. Apparently an Aussie died on Everest on May 21 from some form of high altitude sickness. I also learned that four total have lost their lives on Everest this year. Are you aware of this and do you know them?
    Both Ed and I admire your team leadership and perseverance. Your decision to not continue until I appeared after we descended from Amphu Labsta will forever be with me.
    Thanks, Paul

      Nice to hear from you. Yes-there seemed to be many more cases of altitude illness this year than before-who knows why? Indeed, better always to descend and climb again, than risk dying on the mountain. I hope it’s a one off for me. Yes-I’ve followed the season carefully since coming off the mountain-I’d hoped for season free from climbers dying but unfortunately, that wasn’t the case and tragedy struck many times in the last days of the season. Hope you’re finding adventure out your way,

    TA..you and your team are doing wonderful work with school kids. It must be very rewarding for all to get that great feedback from them. Great job everyone.

    Thanks TA for putting yourself out there!
