Driveway Packing Mar 29, 2014 | Mountaineering | 8 comments Costa Mesa, Ca. March 29, 2014 How am I supposed to fit all this gear into this carry-on bag? 8 Comments Jennifer Malaret on March 29, 2014 at 4:03 pm OK hilarious photo – if not for the fancy gear and destination that is what my driveway and laundry room look like every weekend with 3 kids and their travel teams! Best of luck on your journey, will be sure to log on and share your adventures. God Bless, return safe. You are an amazing man. Reply Paul G. Colaneri on March 29, 2014 at 4:30 pm Even more difficult will be fitting the bag under the seat in front of you. Reply JOE ANN NIEHOLD on March 29, 2014 at 4:36 pm DUFFEL BAG-MAYBE 3 OR 4 PUT YOUR TUX IN A REALLY NICE BAG, SO THAT WHEN U REACH THE TOP YOU CAN RIP OFF ALL YOUR GEAR & HAVE THAT NICE TUX UNDERNEATH ALL THAT STUFF U HAVE ON THE DRIVE WAY, BUT I WOULD SUGGEST KEEPING THE OXYGEN ON!!!!!!!. I DO WISH YOU THE VERY BEST IN THIS CLIMB, COME HOME SAFE & SOUND !!!! OKEY-DOKEY? WITH TRMENDOUS ADMIRATION, JOE ANN Reply Mark Ratcliff on March 29, 2014 at 4:50 pm Good luck with that packing dilemma, Bill! As always, I will be following along with your Everest expedition here. You are a great inspiration to all of us who have an adventurous spirit. I’ll be praying for your health, safety and success on the mountain this spring. Hope you are packing some Hot Sauce for Base Camp dining enhancement! I was recently in the LA area with my two college-age daughters. We spent an afternoon hanging at Huntington Beach, not far from you. Another day we ate lunch up at Patrick’s Roadhouse in Santa Monica, I told the girls I was looking for you and Ollie to pedal by on the PCH whilst training for Everest — no sighting, but I saluted you anyway! Will you be using Twitter at all while on your journey, especially at Base Camp? I’d ove to be able to follow you and send encouragement that way. God’s blessings and protection be upon you, Bill!

Here is hoping your trip goes well. Say hi to ‘rockman” for me. Reply Jerry and Linda Glenn on March 29, 2014 at 10:15 pm Hope that carry-on bag stretches big time. Sorry we were unable to attend the party, but our prayers for a wonderful safe adventure are with you. As always we will be following you all the way. God Bless Reply Judy Capozzola on March 30, 2014 at 9:47 am I think you might have to wear about half of it on the plane. Good luck and God’s blessings for a safe journey. Reply Tom & Maria on March 31, 2014 at 6:29 am Looks like the perfect amount for a sucessful adventure to the top of the world. You might have a tad bit of difficulty in getting it all in the overhead storage. Good Luck and God Bless, Tom & Maria Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
