Alan will be sending back regular dispatches from Denali, and his other pre-Everest climbs, through the use of a digital camera, PDA and satellite phone, and if you head over to his site, you can enter your e-mail to receive notification of when a new dispatch has been posted.
We’ve enjoyed Alan’s excellent coverage of the 2007 Everest season, but now I’m wishing him well as he sets off on a journey of his own. Alan is climbing for a cause, and hopes to raise $100,000 to search for a cure for Alzheimer’s Disease. Specifically, he’ll be raising money for the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund, which is a great cause, and something we should all support him in.
So, Alan, as you prepare to head out for this climb. I will wish you luck, tell you to climb safe, and that we’ll all be following your adventures on Denali, and on the road ahead. Come down in one piece, and remeber that this mountain is just the first step in a much larger journey. Take care!
