I have had an obsession of sorts with Everest since I was in middle school and watched an IMAX 3D movie about the mountain. The Discovery channel Beyond the Limits thing didn't help matters either.
I work nights and have been plagued of late with bouts of insomnia, tonights insomnia has lead me to watch the George Mallory documentary. So the fires has been stoked again so to speak.
Has anybody here attempted to climb? Been to base camp or advanced base camp? Climbing it would be dream come true but realistically that would never happen. Id be happier than a pig in shit if I could just make a trek to advanced base camp and see the mountain that close.
