I was starting to feel that way after several days in KTM. But once on the trail towards Monjo, I got back my pulmonary Mojo. You will too, my friend!

I was initially excited about this headline until I read the fine print. Isn't coal mining and timber harvesting what we are trying to protect public lands from???

My trek begins at 3am Tuesday morning, so I’d like to thank South Knoxville’s very own John Quillen for his inspiration and encouragement to do this, and for his experience, knowledge and advice on Everest. Check out his book and his YouTube channel.
