i just finished reading nando parrado's 'Miracle in the Andes.' his account of the 1972 andean air crash is stunning. i cannot believe that he and one other of the survivors managed a significant mountian climb / expedition without proper equipment, 'food', health, or experience. read it if you hav'nt already. it is testimony to the fact that we humans can pretty much accomplish anything. even if / especially if we have no idea of what we are doing and simply put one foot in front of the other.
