Now it is possible to learn about the experiences of going through an expedition to the Earth's limits through a National Geographic blog. National Geographic Field Test Everest is a live blog documenting the life and struggles of trying to climb Mt. Everest. The blog is full of medical issues, sights, and adaptions needed to conquer in order to reach the top.
After reading this blog I think I will stick with my all time high of 7,300 feet (2,225 meters).
