We are aiming to begin our trip by cresting the summit of Shasta, robes flowing in the alpine breeze – we pray not up them - However, weather around Shasta is partial to no man, regardless of religious persuasion, past charitable acts, intended future kindnesses…or fitness levels. It does have the potential to prevent a successful summit, though of course, we’ll be calling on the Almighty for intervention. I (Paul), being out of shape, could also stop us too & the Almighty wants me to deal with that myself. So, we are open to assistance from any of you who have had success in commanding weather or who have Sherpa ancestry. We have a few surprises that we want to video up on the mountain.
