I leave in four days for Everest and am very excited to report that my climbing Sherpa partner is Nima Nuru. He is 38 years old, has alot of experience including Everest, and he looks like a nice guy. IMG will be posting a picture of Nima and a brief bio on their website shortly - www.mountainguides.com.
I plan to spend this morning packing so that I am completely ready with no last minute panics.
I was interviewed last Thursday by Channel 10/11 news and it will be aired tonight on the news and will be on their website for some time to come. You should be able to find it under Lance's journal at http://www.1011now.com/lancesjournal.
There will also be an interview with me on AM1240 KFOR this coming Monday with Dale Johnson, although you can hear it now. The address is http://www.kfor1240.com/Lincoln-Live-with-Dale-Johnson/4463324, look for "Climbing Mount Everest".
I'm really getting excited, but also a little nervous!
