  1. The AT (Appalachian Trail) is a 3500km. hike from Georgia > Maine. IMO the best thing to do is to join a mountaineering club, and take a mountaineering skills course which may be offered from that club and then get some climbing/glacial travel experience by climbing some smaller glaciated peaks over 6000m. Many say if you can go 6000m you can prolly go 8000m. Then follow the natural progression to bigger peaks. Lot's of amazing easier climbs in the Andes that would take you up to just under 7,000m. Since you have climbing experience maybe take a mountaineering skills course and atta
  2. Yup, used to be my life. I've always been interested in climbing since I was a kid ****in around in trees. Moved to Colorado in Jr.high and went off, skippin school to go climbing for the rest of my school days. I try to take a trip at least once a year these days, but I've been section hiking the AT which has been eating up all my vacation.
  3. Man, what's up with that in Japan. I always see people of all ages picking their noses on the train like no big deal.
  4. Damn it, wrote that post before seeing yours RD. Great read, thanks for that article I can't believe he only took 2 bottles, it prolly would have been safer to use none at all due to the rapid loss of acclimatisation that would have occured when the gas ran out.
  5. Yup, it's really hard to say what happened. The article says that other climbers saw him playing with his oxygen setup, but Inglis say's he didn't even have oxygen. He was obviously suffering from some type of altitude illness seeing how he stripped some of his clothing, which would most likely mean that he was climbing without oxygen to begin with especially since he didn't have sherpa support. They also said he started to climb the previous day, since most climbers start their summit attack very early morning he was most likely exposed for over 24hrs. without oxygen. If all that's true there

  9. That's what you get for listening to dance tracks. Since I love helping people out, here download this. http://bt.etree.org/details.php?id=25485
  10. Me too sorry about that. Yes, of course people have been rescued from very high on Everest, (I worded that wrong)but usually they were injured from a fall, totally dif. animal. In the case of this guy, I can't believe that 40 people passed him thinking I could prolly save this mans life. Maybe they could have medicated him, or used a Gamow, and brought him down.I've never even been over 7,000m so it's impossible to fathom, but for me I think that the feeling of saving this mans life would be far better than the feeling I would get from summiting any mountain. I love climbing even mor
  11. Not even news.They shouldn't bitch. People are left for dead all the time on Everest. Very rarely are corpses brought down (usually thrown in a crevasse). Anyone who attempts Everest knows what could happen, and depending what route you take there are many corpses along the way just to remind you. A friend who attempted Everest was just in awe at the first body he came across staring at it for 20 min. thinking Daammmnnnnn since the bodied don't decompose, he said the skin looks like it's made from ceramic. After coming across other corpses he didn't even look twice. As said there's absolut
  12. Three Texas surgeons were playing golf together and discussing surgeries they had performed. One of them said, "I'm the best surgeon in Texas. A concert pianist lost 7 fingers in an accident, I reattached them, and 8 months later he performed a private concert for the Queen of England." One of the others said, "That's nothing. A young man lost both arms and legs in an accident, I reattached them, and 2 years later he won a gold medal in field events in the Olympics." The third surgeon said, "You guys are amateurs. Several years ago a cowboy who was high on cocaine and alcohol
  13. Back from the dead. George Bush was out jogging one morning along the parkway when he tripped, fell over the bridge railing and landed in the creek below. Before the Secret Service guys could get to him, three kids, who were fishing, pulled him out of the water. He was so grateful he offered the kids whatever they wanted. The first kid said, "I sure would like to go to Disneyland." George said, "No problem. I'll take you there on Air Force One." The second kid said, "I really need a new pair of Nike Air Jordan's." George said, "I'll get them for you and even

  15. BP, by vibe I just mean when you look at them, some stare back and give ya a look like "what the **** you starin at?" It seems to happen most when I go to the skatepark in Yokosuka, around the US Navy base.
  16. Ofcourse it's not new as stated in the original post. There have been claims that an internal combustion engine was built in 1805 that ran on water. Also in 1971 they made a Ford LTD that ran on water. Any hillbilly that attended the 6th grade knows of the bomb you speak of, was that supposed to be proof that the technology exists? As stated in the video clip it will be most useful in industry. The gas is very safe since the flame is only 259 degees farenheit, but will instantly raise to the melting point of whatever it comes in contact with up to 10,000 degrees farenheit. But yeah
  17. Actually, I hate that landfill of cabbage. I was just ****in with ya And another one. I don't understand foreigners who vibe other foreigners on the street. People who carry the SUV of umbrellas. The ones that are so big they seem to be stolen from a picnic table or something.
  18. http://www.bolt.com/bcmom/video/994705?cn=HUBS_video_new_today_PAGE1 Pretty sweet. Not really a new idea but def. nice to see someone working on it. The problem has always been with the electrolysis of the H2O particle into hydrogen since the H-H bonding is so strong and really requires quite a bit of energy to chuck a H to get fuel. But, if this ever becomes efficient enough as I think it someday will, I'll bet the oil lobbyist will try to shut that shit down in a hurry.
  19. Never, but I always laugh at people like that too. Especially in Japan I see so many younger guys making sure their hair is all ****ed up by grabbing it and pulling it straight up, and then making sure the long hair next to their ears (supposed to be sideburns) is nice and glued to their head with spray/water. It's best when your late for something, taking a quick piss, go to wash your hands and all the sink space is taken by these kids. It's especially funny when people suck it in / chest puffin like you describe, what's the point?
  20. Norwegian, might wanna check out Arapahoe Basin while your in the area ,just a short drive from Breckenridge (might have a shuttle). IMO the best ski area in Summit county, also has a very local feel with slow lifts and sick hikable terrain.
  21. I think I've been in Japan to long cause damn near everything has been annoying the shit outta me these days. Japanese kids that think they're ****in rap stars. I understand that someone likes this music or artist he wears this stuff, and I'm gonna support those companys or whatnot. What pisses me off is the ego, stay away, and don't **** with me like they could/would do something. The bags "Do you want 35 bags around this pen incase of nucular attack?" Those guys who ride those super loud motorcycles reving the engine over, and over, and... actually all the noise pollution in g
  22. Damn, you're lucky at $60 a pop it's like winning the lotto. If I wasn't on the guestlist I wouldn't pay that much. Gonna be sick, but looks like rain. If ya get bored look for me under the big mic stand.
  23. I've only skied in the Americas (never Utah)so... Crested Butte, J.hole, Telluride in that order. Also love A Basin, but that's about as far from a resort as you can get. Also I'm sure if I went to Europe these would prolly change.
