Just wanted to check in with some updates about everything. Everest is coming up pretty quickly. I leave in just over a month. All my gear is in order. Still trying to work out the kinks for my means of communication. Will most likely have a sat phone so I'll be able to provide some tweet updates while I'm there. A blog will be updated pretty often from the web site of the expedition outfitter I'll be going with peak freaks.
Ok, and the memory competition. Coming up, 3 weeks from today. Can't believe it was a year ago already since the last one. Time goes by fast. It's going to be a good one. If you are in the Manhattan area, I highly suggest you go watch. It's from 8:30am-4:00pm (the afternoon part is more exciting for viewers) at the ConEdison building near Union Square.
Training for both Everest and the memory competition has been exhausting and draining at times. But I see the light at the end of the tunnel. I've never been so disciplined in my life and I'm very happy with the results of seen from the training. Hopefully both will provide Climb For Memory with the attention it has been seeking for a long time. More people need to know about how I, as well as many other memory athletes, have been able to improve their memory through training.
