While I was lounging around having pools drinks in Hawaii, my mom and dad were across the Pacific Ocean trekking around Mt. Everest in Nepal for a month! This was actually their third trip to Nepal but they said this was the most strenuous than the other two. Mom and Dad kick butt! I don't think many people could have made it to 18,000 feet!!! (As a reference Mt. Rainier is 14,411 feet).
