Today, May 25, marks the 15th Anniversary of my team and I reaching the summit of Mt. Everest. It was a momentous achievement, but I don’t think that any of us could have predicted how powerfully the experience would alter the course of our lives. This past year I have been working on my third book, entitled No Barriers, which in many ways chronicles my experiences beyond Everest. Although it’s been a daunting and intense process, it’s also been a fun opportunity to look back over the last 15 years and reflect on what an adventure it has been.
