Sir Edmund Hillary passed away yesterday. I met him when I lived in NZ. What a genuinely nice guy. His feat of climbing Everest in 1953 was quite remarkable especially given the state of the art in mountaineering technology at the time. His service to the people of Nepal was legendary. The world is a little bit lesser of a place......

So true about what it took to do it when he did. No Gore Tex, fleece, polartech, thinsulate, plastic boots, titanium gear, carbon fiber poles, etc. All he had was ba!!s.
