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.

Iltalehti video, presenting my gear for Everest

Iltalehti made an interview of my last-minute preparations, they put a video of me explaining what I will take with me on their site. 

 Showing off my gloves, happy to have them. Other important gear: the superb coat, the shoes, sunglasses and enough chocolate.
