Overview

In April 2012 Mark Horrell travelled to Tibet hoping to become, if not the first person to climb Mount Everest, at least the first Karl Pilkington lookalike to do so.



He joined a mountaineering expedition which included an Australian sexagenarian, two Brits whose idea of hydration meant a box of red wine, and a New Zealander who enjoyed reminding his teammates of the perils of altitude sickness and the number of ways they might die on summit day.



The media often write about Mount Everest deaths and how easy the world’s highest mountain has become to climb, but how accurately does this reflect reality?



The Chomolungma Diaries is a true story of ordinary people climbing Mount Everest with a commercial expedition, and preparing for the biggest day of their lives.



Imagine your life clipped into a narrow line of cord five miles above the earth, on the world’s most terrifying ridge walk. This book will bring you just a little bit closer to that experience.

A cat left sparrow bones behind, crossing out of Northclan's territory.

As greenleaf comes to a close, its devastating temperatures and drought remains for a couple weeks more. While the large AshClan forest fire did not reach the territory, many smaller fires managed to light, catching for small periods of time before dying out again. Wolves and coyotes prowl during the evening and night, looking for extra prey they might find from the high winds spreading the cats' trails across the big cats' trails. A rare wolverine also ravages the forest to store up for leaf-bare as the temperatures begin to drop rapidly and disease starts to come around once more.<br><br>~&#8499issingmoon
