Is it really Everest in reality, or is it just another body of water that can have good and bad weather and should be traversed with caution at the right time of year..
Either way Tom, go for it! I certainly share the dream of going 'round as well. No matter how you slice it, it's a planetary scale event to round the horn in your own vessel.
“It was horrible. It was Christmas Eve. I was 9 years old. Me and Mom were decorating the tree, waiting for Dad to come home from work. Christmas Day came and went and still nothing. The house was freezing, so I went to light up the fire. That’s when I noticed the smell. The firemen came and broke through the chimney. He was in a Santa Claus suit. He’d climbed down the chimney with presents. He was gonna surprise us. He slipped, broke his neck. That’s how I found out there was no Santa Claus.”
