* May the climbers who have perished on Mount Everest rest in peace. *
When you climb up, throw the bodies off the mountain... use a parachute for the females
Like a battlefield site, preserved forever in the chill air, casualties on display to serve as a warning to all who attempt the climb.
It’s an ascent attempted by many semi-qualified climbers these days, but it can go very, very bad and very, very quickly.
You want to know why I climb mountains? Because they’re there, that’s why! That and my stupid jet pack won’t work.
We were making the final ascent when suddenly, the Abominable Snowman jumped out and grabbed one of the Sherpas and tore him in half! Thinking quickly, I immediately dropped to my hands and knees and began to imitate the only known predator of the Abominable Snowman....The Black Angus Cow! I mooed at the blighter a couple of times and started chewing my cud. He immediately retreated into a cave. Surprisingly, half of the Sherpa was still alive and you know the old saying, “Half a Sherpa is better than none”, so we continued on fighting the Spitting Cobras and Crocodiles.
I am not a young man. I graduated from high school in 1961. One of my classmates climbed Everest in 2010. He’s in great shape for a guy my age.
Bill and Hillary have more victims than that.
But when the Messiah comes (and i don’t mean Obamessiah) they’ll be closer to Heaven than the rest of us!
More dead bodies in the pet cemetery in my backyard
Don’t worry. Global warming will soon melt Mount E’s snow and the bodies will all slide down to basecamp.
this thread is humorous ping
The dead must be cold up there!
Read ‘Into thin air’ and was fascinated.
You have to respect the mountain.
Well, that and fork over a heft price to get into this ‘club’ and then that’s it. Seemingly not a lot of background, just the dough, and you’re in.
What’s the point? To brag you climbed Mt Everest? Or to have your relatives brag you’re buried on top of Mt Everest.
Isn’t it funny. It’s named Mt. EVER REST...
I say find another hobby.
We got a similar thing at Denali here in Alaska, last I heard something like 31 bodies are still up there hidden in buried ravines and such.
Thanks for posting. I am fascinated by alpine mountaineering stories.
