    Come on Ben. I think you and the Queen should come to Canada next winter and see "the real thing". You can stay home and make lunch, while the Queen and I walk and chat! LOL!!

    Good grief, NO! The very idea of doing that, makes me shiver. I have more than enough "snow adventures" living through our winters here.

    Me too! With the wind-chill factor, it can get to -40 degrees (that's the same in Farenheit as it is in Celsius). I heard of someone who climbed it years ago, and wore 6 pairs of socks, hoping to prevent frostbite. It didn't help all that much,as he had to have several toes amputated. I'm also a big guy, and the snow/ice can give way without warning, and you can easily fall thousands of feet.

    Some like "living on the edge"! (Pun intended)

    I am not a fan of cold and snow! I am not a fan of heights! So no thanks!

    It's expensive to pay for the trip over there and the expedition ......the sherpas and and all the equipment,food,  the gear, and clothes.Not to mention that  there's a lot of dead bodies on the mountain.
