Chills? Watching Everest on Discovery Channel?

Are you watching the show? Was wondering what you think of it. I'm digging it.

I really like Man vs. Wild show too.

I've got it on DVR. I haven't seen it but I have read articles about the climbers this year.... I mean idiots who pay gobs of money to get pulled up the mountain and have no regard for human life. They aren't climbers. Those people piss me off. All they care about is getting another feather in their cap. They want to stand on the summit, not climb the mountain. Everest is a damn circus and I won't climb there even if I had the money.

I'm going to watch it but I bet I'll just get angry seeing that stuff. Standing on the summit isn't worth someone's life.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

It has been a pretty good show. I think you'll end up liking it. It's not a story about a bunch of rich guys. It seems more like a variety of people from different walks of life trying to fulfill a dream or reach a goal. It's been very educational for me I just wondered how you felt and whether it was realistic or not.

It make me want to go hiking. Too bad I get winded taking the garbage cans to the end of the driveway.

Well, then it sounds like something I'd like to watch. I thought it was just going to be about the tragedies up there this year and how's it's also the 10th anniversary of the Moutain Trip disaster. There are some good climbers that go up Everest, but their accomplishments are usually overshadowed by the idiots up there.

Forget about the summit, the real accomplishment here is shitting in a coffee can for three weeks, wiping your ass with snow for three weeks and not showering for three weeks. Now for me, that is a feat of unimaginable magnitude.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Snow works amazingly well. It's usually dry enough so your ass isn't sopping wet after a few wipes. If things get nasty then it's best to use paper.

I will admit that shitting in a toilet was a close second to eating a burger as the first thing I did when I got back.


Hey Jack, I'd love to see a picture of your snow covered driveway with you taking out the garbage wearing a parka, big boots, and carrying an ice ax.
