13 year old Jordan Romero is trying to become the youngest person ever to climb the world's tallest mountain. He and his climbing team are making their push as I write this.
You can follow his efforts on his website, jordanromero.com, and on this GIS map: http://edn1.esri.com/everest/Default.html
The map shows their current position.
I've been following this partly because Jordan is from my news coverage area, and because I have a Walter Mitty-ish fascination with climbing Everest. Just thought I'd share.
I am SO not trying to hijack your Q Gd...but do you think you could let your child do this? I would be petrified! Like the teens that keep trying to sail around the world by them selves....I keep thinking WHAT are their parents THINKING!
