Newspaper story

Well, it is exactly three weeks until I leave for Everest and I am only getting more excited. I was interviewed by our local newspaper, The Lincoln Journal Star and they ran a very nice story about me in today's (Sunday) paper. You can link to it at The writer did a very thorough job and I am very pleased with the results.

I have also been interviewed by the gym where I work out and they will be doing a story on my climbing in the next few days. Their website is

I continue my workouts very diligently and have been adding a little more to my routine each week. I am also sleeping in a hypoxic tent over my bed. I started this almost three weeks ago at 12,000' and now am sleeping at about 15,500'. I also spend 30 to 60 minutes each night wearing a face mask at 21,000'. I am doing this because I have struggled with eating when I am at really high altitudes and hope that this extra time acclimatizing helps.


  1. Robert-
    My wife and I love mountaineering stories and enjoy the mountains also. We hope that you will consider doing a slide show/presentation about your expeditions at some point. We would be there!!!

  2. Thanks for the kind words. I plan on doing at least one slide show when I get back, more if the demand is there. I will post it here and the Journal Star wants to do a follow up story so I will try to have them mention it there as well.
