I am going to climb Everest

My mental health nurse asked me to have a good think about what I want to do. So I come across this website: ' 7 Strange Questions That Help You Find Your Life Purpose' and one of the questions was, If you knew you were going to die one year from today, what would you do and how would you want to be remembered? And I realised I would want to climb Mount Everest, not that this is even possible in a year I don't think. I can do it because I get quite a lot of sickness benefit probably for the rest of my life and I have no other commitments. So I can be totally focused on becoming a mountain climber.

Re: I am going to climb Everest

With the right gear and training anything is possible.

Re: I am going to climb Everest

Because it's a meaningful accomplishment, because it's there or just to see if you can do it!

Re: I am going to climb Everest

I have decided not to climb mount everest. If I was the last person on earth and I'm sitting on a beach. It's just me and God, if there is one. There is a bunch of cliffs behind me. I could climb them to see if I can get to the top without dying but I don't because I'm not stupid. And if climbing mountains is just to impress people then that is stupid as well. I am going to buy some fish. I love watching the ocean, much safer!

Re: I am going to climb Everest

I have changed my mind. I think climbing mount everest is God's will for my life. I googled how do we know what God wants us to do and it said the holy spirit would pacify and encourage us when we are leaning in the right direction and I get so excited at the prospect of climbing mount everest. I know there is a God because even when no one is around I never feel alone, ever since I was a child this has been true.

Re: I am going to climb Everest

I'm a girl by the way. I think everyone keeps thinking I'm a guy. That Nehushtan was so rude to me bobbym. I don't think he would have been if he knew I was a lady. Although I am assuming he/she is a guy. Could have been a cat fight......... Meow!

Re: I am going to climb Everest

I have done some research in case anyone else is interested in climbing it.

It's going to set you back something like £40, 000.

You need to;

Go on a climbing course and then practice

Go on an ice climbing course and then climb a lesser mountain

Do a load of training before attempting the ascent

Also you should know;

70% of attempts are unsuccessful and for every 10 climbers that make the ascent 1 will die trying to

That is a high risk! I'm quite scared now..................................................... Oh well!

Re: I am going to climb Everest

It does seem a bit much. How about hiking in the wilderness? It is difficult but people rarely die from it.

Re: I am going to climb Everest

Okay, that's fair.

My avatar is because I used to play judo.

I tend to do everything to the extreme also. My friends used to call me Xtreme when I was a bit younger because I used to do everything to the extreme. Jump off things, drink the most and drive stupidly, stuff like that. I have calmed down a lot now but still enjoy a good challenge! I am at a weird point in my life when I am finally feeling better and I just don't know what to do with myself.
