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.

Update from Base Camp

I am back in Everest Base Camp. When we arrived today they were carrying bodies down from the mountain.

Everyone in our group is ok. Pasang, my other sherpaguide, was working there early in the morning. He climbed to security by a rope from the area where the avalanche hit, others waiting for a ladder to be fixed got caught.
