Excellent! Now that's two people I know that have summitted... 1 for each of the last 2 seasons. :)
Incidentally, the other guy is a skydiver too ;)

Was this Baxter's first attempt?



Awesome!!

It was Baxter's first attemp at the summit although he was at base camp last year, I believe.

Congrats Baxter. We've been following your progress over the last month on your website.

You probably had ample opportunity to beat your personal record for "most days not changing your underwear". At Kjerag in 2004, Baxter went 7 days on the same pair.

Baxter, YOU ARE THE MAN!!!

Yep, nice fuckin job Baxter. Your story now beats all other stories at most any party you will ever got to. No matter what the other guys are tellin the ladies, the ol' "when I was on the summit of Everest" line will probably crush everytime.........cuz I know that's why you really went to Tibet. Love ya dude!

Great effort. Well done. :)
I am jealous.

Any time you want to summit in Australia, you are more than welcome.
Just bring your shorts, t-shirt, and Teva's. ;)

Stay Safe - Have Fun - Good Luck

The above could be crap, thought provoking, useful, or . . But not personal. You decide.

Hey Guys-

Thanks for the positive comments! The experience was pretty cool and should pay emotional dividends for some time to come.

I'm still in Nepal, right now hanging out in Namche Bazzar which is about a days hike from the nearest airport where I'll fly back into Kathmandu. Molly and I should be back in the US by the end of next week assuming we don't get side tracked in Thamel! (626 and Spiderbaby know what I'm talking about here ;))

On a base related note, I scoped out some sweet big walls in the Khumbu that I'm making plans now to go back and jump. This place is pretty sweet and untapped.

Baxter.

I know how you feel bro, after getting me pregnant that fucker doesn't call OR write anymore. I think he's training for that damned K2(and snorting coke off a strippers taint).
