You know when you begin to start every sentence with, “If we survive this trip…” that you’re in the middle of a serious adventure.

Well friends. Though we sometimes doubted this day would ever come, we can now official sigh (and sing), “We’re alive!” And there is nothing like looking over the cliff of your life to make you step back and take a breath of appreciation for the simple non-cliff-hanging details of living.

I have a day-by-day account of the adventure of which I’ll soon be posting. But first we need to do things like shower for the first time in a month, gain back the weight we lost living in the clouds that hover the Himalayas, and call everyone we’ve ever known to tell them we love them. Yes. It was the dumbest, bravest and most challenging and beautiful of my seven years of adventures. And, soon, you’ll hear more about it that you ever wanted to. But first. We have things like bed sheets and toilet seats to appreciate.

The above are only two of over a thousand photos waiting to be uploaded….
