it was bitter sweet to see John when he got back from Everest. I met with him at Morgan Street Cafe. He had been on Everest just some 50 hours prior. He had lost 30 pounds and had taken a bit of a beating from the mountain but he always has such a great attitude. Below is a link to his blog detailing the events that led him to descend from Camp IV after 24 hours in the “death zone.”

The 2nd link is a short clip of the storm they descended through to make it back to base camp.

You can still donate to his cause to further orthopeadic research by going to http://www.goldenexpedition.org/

Discovery Channel will be airing 6 one hour episodes of John and Jon’s summit attempt in November of this year.
