For a comparison of altitude changes across Mongolia's rugged mountains:
"This article is reprinted from the Mountain Zone web site (mountainzone.com)
Scientists supported by the National Geographic and Boston's Museum of Science were able to operate Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite equipment on the very top of Mount Everest last May and have determined the precise height of the world's tallest mountai. The revised elevation - 29,035 feet (8850 meters), two meters or seven feet higher than the previously accepted figure - was announced Nov. 11, 1999"
My expedition was supported by LYNSKEY PERFORMANCE, USA using their hand-made titanium frame, the M240S. I would like to thank them all for supporting and encouraging expeditions globally. lynskeyperformance.com
Over the last several years, I have been working with two amazing foundations working in community, the first is IDEAS which touches very close to my heart. The second foundation is linking schools and formal education with exploring - this is innovative and something I strongly believe in. IDEAS is led by global explorer/mountaineer Robert Hill of Canada, who successfully completed his No Guts, Know Glory 7 Summits Campaign (including Mount Everest in 2010) with an ostomy as a measure to improve his life living with IBD.
IBD is the collective name for Crohns Disease or CD and Ulcerative Colitis ,UC which are chronic, long-term conditions requiring serious medical treatment or surgeries to help those millions of patients around the planet inflicted with this debilitating disease. Inspiration is the key to survival on Earth, no matter what circumstances we live through, there is always a cure to struggles with dedication, determination, positivity and personal growth that comes with overcoming the biggest and almost impossible odds against us.
DO NOT GIVE UP HOPE IN YOU, JUST TRY HARDER NEXT TIME.
Since there is a long road to find a cure, I am in to ride for others who can share my triumphs, and I hope to spread the word about INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE IBD because it's a voice to a community that needs hope and support, I admire Rob Hill for continuing his community work with the IDEAS Foundation of Canada.
I also explore in partnership with Education Through Expeditions, founded by Arctic and Polar Explorer friend, Antony Jinman of Plymouth, UK. Antony has overcome enormous obstables in his life to bring forth adventure into the classrooms, while undertaking expeditions in Arctic regions of Canada. He is an inspiration and a true leader in his community. I am proud to represent his valuable foundation through Adventure mountain biking the globe as an Explorer Ambassador with ETE in 2011.
I am now affiliated with the Ted Simon Foundation, as a Jupiter Traveller as of late 2012. I look forward to supporting the foundation and sharing expeditions with the world, as I ride mountain bikes. jupiterstravellers.org/
Need Motivation when life goes wrong?
Do you need strength to carry on?
Do you think you have it in you?
Do you have the strength?
Do you have tenacity?
Do you believe?
Do you dream?
Then work it.
You need to get back up and fight for that DREAM, make it your reality, Not someone else's. And when they tell you that you're no good, You can probably do better than all of them.Planning expeditions, doing them, paying for them, preparing for them - isn't easy.
and the dream can slip away,
friends can turn on you, family can ignore you,
companies will ignore you,
you will feel exhausted,
you will feel beat,
you will lose hope,
but if you will persist,
you will eventually succeed,
if they don't care, it won't matter,
it's what is in you that matters,
you will become successful
because it's in you,
and forget about what happened in the past, it won't change itself. It's about today and what you can do about it.
So, remember to...put your effort into
making the rest of your life, the best of your life.
