Do I hear Everest taunting me "Come get me, 'cuz I ain't never been got"? Well "almost never".

@SAMBA
Absurd. Take those stupid cylinders and masks from them and hardly anyone would be there. As it should be.

@sidhayes Speaking of cylinders, I watched Death Zone the cleaning of Everest yesterday Available on Amazon Prime. It’s about Sherpas that were removing trash and corpses from the peak. The amount of trash left behind by “Nature Lovers” was staggering.

@Pivo
What part of "peak bagging" don't you understand? Friends - over rated! Hiking partners - ditto! The environment - more ditto! Significant others - way more ditto! Fun - what's that? NOTHING matters but achieving some arbitrary GOAL deemed significant by, most likely, unknown others.

Or try hypobaric low 02 training like this woman did. https://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2019/ ... neers-die/

@LosDosSloFolks. Interesting but I noticed that her and others had a mask on. Sucking on bottled 02. This is right on par with the hidden electric motors inside a bicycle. Maybe worse.
