Home Sweet Home

Dear Family & Friends:

I’m home. Yipeee!

It was so sweet of my wife to set up one of my tents in the backyard so I would feel completely at home when I went to bed last night. Just kidding.

In addition to the thanks I expressed in my last e-mail, I want to thank the following people:

Scott Farner for posting my messages on my website

Sharon, Lisa (my daughter) and Blake (my granddaughter) for transcribing my audio messages to make them easier to understand

Lisa for posting my Facebook messages

Bailey (my granddaughter) for maintaining a Twitter account related to my climb

I will be posting some photos and video in the next week or two.

Thanks to all of you for your interest and support and for all the nice messages posted on my blog.

Stay tuned for news of my 2012 adventure.

Bill

  13. After family has our say I am hoping the 2012 adventure is writing a book about it all, or taking a fun (safe) family trek somewhere.
