A guy I've been day hiking with for about a year set out Sunday, March 23, to summit the highest peak in the world.
Jim Geiger took 28 years to get to this point, but he's not letting his age be an obstacle in his goals of living a healthy lifestyle. When he summits Mount Everest his distinction will be as the oldest American and the first Great Grandfather to make it to the top of the top. He has been influenced by a few and his 'just start' attitude has influenced many he has come in contact with. A few of which came to his send off party a couple weeks ago in Carmichael, Calif. and are featured above. Read more about Jim's trek up Everest at the International Mountain Guides travel blog.
The biggest question though, is what is your Everest?
