This week Ash and Michelle talk about one of the deadliest days on Mount Everest!
Michelle talks about Mount Everest, aka “the world's largest open-air graveyard”, the dangers of mountaineering and the story of the 1996 Mt. Everest disaster. Poor planning, inexperience and a massive blizzard led to one of the deadliest days in Everest history. She also touches on how famed author John Krakauer was on this adventure as well, and wrote the novel Into Thin Air about his experiences.
