hi whoever u r,
I am from nepal.u people come to nepal and climb everest and other peaks but we nepalese are so lazy we don't even visit the base camp.This is unfortunate for us.
Anyways I feel happy when anyone(even the foreigners) climb these mountains and get the feeling of being on the top of the world.

best of luck for ur other adventures

Hey there! Congrats on your achievement! I was just wondering if you had to train hard before the summit experience. I am training someone here for the 3 Peaks Challenge in the UK and was curious how fit one has to be for these outward bounds!

Hi Samantha,

Since I learned you summited I have visited many sites related to Himalaya and seen many pictures of people summiting 8000ers. What amazed me is that in your summit pics you look almost as fresh as if you had just completed a warm up jog on the beach! You have put aside your oxygen mask, removed your (at least one) gloves and smile broadly. I suppose the conditions must have been ideal and one can say you're one lucky Gal! Congratulations on your achievement and thank you for the inspiration.

Best wishes.

Hey Samantha....

well, you dont know me and i dont know you, but.... today i read a
short article about you in a german magazine called 4seasons. (you are
on the magazin's cover, btw)
and yeah... i was pretty amazed when i read you climed the 7 summits,
cause you're at the same age as i am and i also love to be outside.
really, amazing, even it's one year ago!
ok well anyway, that article made me kinda curious about you and i
checked your website. it seems a lil bit out of date, though and the
most parts are offline. (incl those everest pics i wanted to view).
so, i dont know if you will read this actually.... if so, would be
great if you could reply. thank you!

greets from Germany

(sry if you dont get everything i wrote, because of my english)

The registration for ScienceOnline09 (formerly known as the 3rd Science Blogging Conference) is now open:

I was thinking it would be cool to have a session about Blogging From Crazy Places.

You and a few others who blogged from strange places could each take turns explain what you did and why you blogged it; what were the technical challenges (and how you solved them); what was the readers' response, what did you get out of it: Fame and Fortune, personal satisfaction, a new circle of friends and colleagues, a job offer or promotion, a book or movie deal? Let us know.

Hey Samantha,

As another college student who is interested in both photography and mountain climbing the fact that you have already reached the seven summits is inspiring. I'm also a little jealous because you have accomplished something that will probably take me more than a decade. Anyway, I started my own blog ( in hopes that one day I can ascend Everest. Thanks for the posts

It's really nice to save some photos! Pictures help us cherish special moments and share them to others. The photos can be an inspiration for many aspiring mountain climbers! Mt. Everest is probably one in their list. ;)
