My wife Mary and I summited Kilimanjaro on our honeymoon over 25 years ago.
With CLI, my son Dawson and I summited Kili seven years ago and from that
experience I have never felt more alive, despite being 65 years old. Four years
ago I climbed again with CLI on their inaugural Aconcagua mountain trek.
Although I did not summit, the six of us had remarkable adventures
and created lasting memories and friendships.
When I heard that all five of my fellow Aconcagua climbers had signed up to again
hike the Andes, how could I pass up the opportunity to join them again for new
adventures and making more memories? At age 72, this climb will be a challenge,
a real challenge. But, it’s not about the destination, it’s the lessons learned and
the journey to be experienced and savored.
The Good Lord has blessed us all in so many ways and I am looking forward to
once again relishing the unbelievable beauty of the Andes and its peoples,
which are both part of God’s marvelous handiwork. You ask why I climb?
To that I answer, “Why not?” Besides, as my father used to say, “It’s a poor
runner who slows down at the end of the race”.
I also climb to honor CLI and the Lord’s work that they do in Malawi. Support
me in my climb and I will give THREE dollars to CLI for every one that is given
on my behalf.
And, each climber is paying 100% of all the expenses. Every dollar given goes
solely to Child Legacy to fund their mission work.
Consider signing up for a trip. It will be the experience of a lifetime. I guarantee it.
