If you are a regular viewer of The Rest of Everest you probably heard Jon’s announcement a few weeks back that he is returning to the North Side of Everest this year. In just a few days actually, as he departs on Sunday, April 1st. He has more details of the trip in this week’s video podcast on what we fans can expect.
For starters, there is a whole new webpage you’ll want to bookmark that will be updated throughout the trip, with blog entries, images, audio files and more. We’ll hear from Jon while he meets up with some teams on the North Side and Ben, the lead climber on the Rest of Everest video podcasts, will be checking in from time to time as he goes for the summit of Shisha Pangma this year. It sounds like we should be treated to some great stuff.
Also, in this bonus podcast, we learn about climbers Brian Oestrike and Justin Hewitt who are taking on Everest this year for a good cause, namely to raise money and awareness for lung cancer. The charity they are climbing for is lungevity.org and you can follow their whole climbe at ClimbForCancer.Blogspot.com.
Good luck to Brian and Justin on the their climb for a cause, and have fun in Nepal and Tibet Jon. We can’t wait to see what kind of new adventures you have and look forward to you sharing them with us. Be safe guys!
