I’m an armchair mountain climber and have read just about every book written on major mountain climbing attempts, such as Everest and K2. I’ve also seen all the movies.
I know. I don’t look like someone who would know anything about mountain climbing, which is why I saw surprise on a Yosemite guide’s face when he talked about climbing and I had knowledgeable questions about the equipment. “You know what a Porta-Ledge is?” he asked.
Why yes, yes I do!
But I’m too cautious to ever want to actually climb.
My husband jumped out of an airplane once. With parachute. I think he might’ve been drunked up and with fraternity brothers. But you couldn’t get me drunk enough for peer pressure to have any influence on me!
How about you? What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done?
