Reply Dawes Eddy on June 25, 2015 at 5:29 pm 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! Dawes Reply Paul G. Colaneri on June 25, 2015 at 7:18 pm 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 Paul from Hingham, Massachusetts Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
