We became friends with and he really is a great guy. This article chronicles his rise to the top as the first black man to summit Everest. (When I found out the Queen wanted to meet him, he told the entire story of his visit to the palace)

Very proud of Neal (and the best Sherpa in the world, Sange and Dawa)

I've been made to look pretty good lately but the truth is, well, I'll let this picture tell a thousand words. (Returning to camp 2 from the South Col, May 25) Understand, I hadn't changed clothes in a week! Birds dropped from the sky when I unzipped the suit.

I know of whom you speak, Alan. And he was very disappointed, understandably so. My girlfriend just told me to donate some money in your name for Alzheimers research because she was glued to your site on our summit push. Heard that from many folks when we returned. Thanks

I'm a Morristown native so it's very humbling to have the Citizen Tribune devote such coverage to our climb. Many thanks to editor John Gullion.

Ted Hall of WVLT Channel 8 will be interviewing me about Everest at 5.30 this afternoon if you find yourself with little else to watch on television and aren't sick of my media coverage yet!
