So, after a few minutes of soul searching on his 20th birthday Imy decided his lifelong dream was to climb Everest. I decided to take him seriously so here we are..
Obviously we’ll need a bit of time to get in shape, it’ll need a fair bit of money and apparently if we go any time apart from April to May we’ll just die from the harsh weather conditions so the spring after we finish uni sounds like a good time to go to give us plenty of time to practise and save up the money.
This idea WILL NOT fizzle out after a few weeks. I’m well up for it.
Update – One year on I’ve just turned 20, Imy 21, and the birthday blues gave him a fresh drive to climb everest. He has actually started going to the gym now, which is some progress, although he’s also taken up smoking which probably will make this a little more difficult. Therefore I’ve put the date back to 2026 (we’ll be around 35-36 if I’ve got my maths right) so we’ll have more time to raise the cash and it’ll be a bit less of a tragedy if we both die in the attempt
