Everest

Adventures of a mother of 7 – Johanna Gustafsson

Because it's there!

When 8 years old I learned about Mount Everest, and ever since I have dreamed about climbing up there. When I became middle-aged and sensible I thought that it's impossible.

2012 when I turned 50 I suddenly got this crazy idea to fulfill my childhood dream. Now, almost 2 years later, after studying, training, researching & finding solutions, it seems possible!

If things go well I will summit in May 2014, if things don't go well I will hopefully do it another year. If you want to follow me vie e-mail updates you can subscribe to them.

Info from Aventuras Patagonicas:

The team is at camp 2 or Chopper Camp, Yesterday they did a carry to high camp, they left a load of food, fuel and some equipment at almost 6.000m.

Today they are having a well-deserved rest at camp 2. They need it because tomorrow, Jan 17th,  they will move to the high camp, called Plaza Colera or White Rocks (19,685'), focused on the summit. They will probably go for the summit on Saturday the 18th.
