Meet My Sherpas

Dear Family & Friends:

Here is biographical data related to my Sherpas for 2012. In case you are wondering, in 2010 and 2011, Ang Mingma Sherpa was in the United States and was attending to family matters, which is why you see no information on him for those years.

In my next post, I will answer this question: “Fit to Climb”?

  1. I heard you talk and watched your slideshow at John and Denise’s house in Saugerties several years ago. I was fascinated then and I am in awe now!

    Good luck!

    Looking forward to following this quest!


  2. Bill,

    I will be following you every step of the way. Each time I feel my cross I think of you and God’s blessings. Keep looking up.

    Best regards, Lanny

  3. Experience is certainly on your side. You juist need a window to accomplish your top goal.We also know who has to provide that.You’ll be in our prayers again Bill.Good Luck

  4. It looks like you will have fantastic climbing partners. My students and I at South Middle School in Salina, Kansas will be watching you every step of the way. With all your new technology, we hope we get a chance to see you at base camp. Our prayers go with you, too.

  5. Looks like you are in good hands. Did you read that mountaineer Lincoln Hall (once left to die on Everest in 2006) died from cancer this week?
