Live on Everest

Here we go

If you have ever sponsored me, ever bought one of my t-shirts, ever attented one of my taco night fundraisers, or just patted me on the back and wished me good luck…I send to you the most sincere thank you.
Today I leave base camp of Everest and every step I take is finally toward the biggest goal of my life, to stand on top of the world.
Every single one of you have made this possible.
I feel in some way I have succeeded in just getting this far, but on the other hand I am drawn to do something great. Know that it comes from my heart. I hope to make you all proud.
