Live on Everest

Enroute to Base Camp-Day 2

Road trip-Heading to Base CampWe knock on wood as we state this, but things are going very good. The whole team and gear is together, and that is saying alot in this situation.

The drive from Nepal to Tibet….most interesting.

In between the amazing sights, the laughing and heckling is in abundance We have arrived in Nylam, Tibet. 3800m, or just over 12,000′.

Hugs and love to all that have supported the expedition. It’s for real, and we’re living it.
Jordan- eating and sleeping like a champ. Life is good.

    Hi Jordan, Paul and Karen – We’re really excited for you beginning your journey together and glad to hear that all the gear made it through. I know I’ve said it before, but I’m amazed every time I see a jetliner fly over way up high, and I think that’s about how high the top of Everest is . . . and you’re going there! You are all amazing for taking this on – we admire your confidence, belief in reaching your goals, and trust in each other. You’re all inspirational and are setting great examples in going for your dreams. Thank you Jordan for making this happen! Sending you all hugs! The Hafen Family

  • I just got caught up on this whole website. Looks like a fun adventure so far. We had 4 inches of snow last night and snow all day! Hope your weather is better. Wish I was there. Looks like a great adventure! Stay safe! Tell us about your favorite crazy food experiences. – G

    you are helping to make the world a better place. thank you.

  • Peter

    I always thought climbing Everest would be cool, until I watched Into Thin Air the movie. Be as carefuller as possible.

  • Can’t wait to see the pics and videos of your amazing adventure! Jordan, will you get rid of your anti-oxygen tent/bed once you get home? :-)

  • Namaste and Good Luck Jordan, have fun up there and take care!

    The more ambitious way to the top – and surely not
    the preferred one of so many easy going tourists –
    is without doubt over the North Side; the route
    Mallory & Irvine tried in 1924.

    Handling the 2nd step without the help of the ‘Chinese
    ladder’ will be quite a performance – at the age of 14.

    Nevertheless: a true alpine talent must look
    for a real challenge:

    So in the following years you should try K2
    and the South Face of Annapurna.

    Gyachung Kang, Fitz Roy & Cerro Torre, too.

    Just to make sure that your name in alpine history
    will be well remembered for decades… ;->

    I have two young sons. Wishing they could experience life and embrace it the way you do. You are truly an “old soul”. I’m climbing with you in spirit. No hay vuelta atrás.

  • Hello Jordan , Go for your dreams buddy . I am a fellow climber from Everest 2009.ca . I was the medical director and did not make the summit but made it to 7000 Metres . Check your sat readings, watch your 6 , one step at a time to the summit at 8850 Metres North side . Remember that the dangerous part is coming back down from the summit . Watch out for the second step . My partner who made the summit twice is a canadian and myself wish you a safe summit push from camp 83 . You are an inspiration . Take care . Andre Rossin-Arthiat Mountain Rescue Paramedic and high altitude climber . If you need our sat reading table I will be glad to email it to you . WE have the normal sat readings from BC North to the summit that will keep you focused on your well being . Courage-honor-determination
