LotD: Everest 2

I thought this was an interesting post on how much it costs to climb Everest. It's certainly not cheap! The skinny answer is that it will cost you around $83,000, if not more. Puts a bit more perspective on the people who actually make the climb -- it's not just having a dream, it's putting money where their mouth is.

Check out this article about the four people who died on Everest this past weekend. What's astonishing is the enormous line of people -- 300, per the article -- who are lined up to make the ascent. Truly amazing.
