8 Summits Documentary

Dear Family & Friends:

Less than 1 month to departure day.

Award-winning documentary filmmaker, Allan Smith, will be going with me to Everest this year with plans to prepare a documentary of the expedition. Allan will be going to Base Camp on the South side and possibly as high as the North Col on the North side.

Here is a movie trailer prepared by Allan. You can also view the trailer with additional information on the website of Allan’s company, DreamQuest Productions.

In my next post, I plan to feature some of the exciting new electronics I will be bringing with me this year.
