Planting a flag

Postby [FnG] Hanno » Wed Apr 02, 2014 10:39 am

So this morning I reached the top of Everest. :yahoo:
I started climbing on the 15th January and have just reached 29029 feet from sea level.

Okay not quite but nearly.

As part of my exercise I climb sets of stairs at home. Each set of stairs is equal to 8 feet of vertical height.
I usually do about 20 - 50 sets a day, with the first 10 sets carrying 20kg weights
I've just completed 3629* sets which is equal to climbing Everest from sea level. :yahoo:
(*This excludes the normal day to day climbing of stairs which is probably another 15 sets a day!)

This seems a much safer (+warmer) option than doing it for real!

Was there chocolate cake waiting at the top? :mrgreen:


PS: safe and warm are just emotions, those you can switch off :crazy:

Actually I was thinking:
Olympus Mons on Mars highest mountain/volcano in the solar system - 21.9 km high
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olympus_Mons

21.9km = 71850 feet = 2 1/2 Everests = 8982 sets of stairs.

Might take me a while.


In the meantime I can confirm that there was Chocolate Cake at the top of the mountain.
