After this weekend, I was still on high for the week. It was great to meet and go climbing in the Wolgan Valley with Greg and Ben. Two guys who just live life as it comes to them, laid back, easy going, and super nice. I hope to be climbing with them again soon.
Greg Mortimer was the first Australian to climb Mt. Everest and is now a guide for world wide luxury adventure travel tours. It was during this climb that I told Greg about my vision to use the web to tell the story of far off adventures. It turns out he sits on the board of directors for Australian Geographic, and that was what led to an interview and work at AG.
