  1. Bill,

    I have really enjoyed your commentary and pictures of Mingma and his family. Mingma was my very competent and helpful Sirdar in 2013. What a great experience for both of you and your families!


    1. Hello Dawes. Thank you for the thoughtful and encouraging letter you sent me over two years ago. I had summited Denali in 2011 at age 59 after being semi-retired from mountaineering. Now I’m back in the race. Much of this I attribute to you and Bill Burke. Thank you again.

      Paul from Hingham, Massachusetts
