Twitter at 17,700 Feet

As reported in the Minneapolis City Pages this morning, “Minneapolis climber plans to tweet from Mt. Everest.” (That would be me.)

“Stephen Regenold has slogged his way to the top of the tallest peaks in the United States, including Washington’s Mt. Rainier and California’s Mt. Whitney. But in April, the Minneapolis freelance writer will be journeying to the tallest mountain in the world: Mt. Everest. And he’ll be tweeting about his experience from a tent at 17,700 feet.”

Do you climb for yourself? Or for recognition (and a falsly perceived validation) from others? Are you content knowing for yourself that you accomplished your goal? Or must it be exclaimed from the mountaintop to make everyone else feel inferior?

Climb right, you wanker.

You better twitter me while you’re up there. I so admire those that attempt that climb. I guess Lincoln Hall from Australia has been my Everest idol for his guts and positive attitude to survive. The best I could do was hiking the AT. I look forward to you keeping in touch.

Bull, why don’t you read the whole article before criticizing? And then you’ll understand what the climb is all about.
Do you mean “falsely”?
