Site Update Notifications and Expedition Dispatches

This is home for site notifications and dispatches from Alan's expeditions plus updates on Memories are Everything Alzheimer's fund raising activities. Alzheimer's is a devastating disease and the true cause of the disease is unknown. Researchers are making great progress but more is needed. And there is hope.

I have partnered with the Alzheimer's Association, the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research. Their mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

100% of your donations go directly to Alzheimer's issues. None go to Alan's climbing expenses. I encourage you to read more about this excellent organization and make your tax deductible donation today.

Memories are Everything

HipCast is "Out to Lunch"

I think HipCast, which hosts Alan's audio blogs, is down. I'm sorry that you can't listen to Alan's two latest blog entries. I am pretty sure the problem is with HipCast as the links to the previous blogs are also not working. I can't even connect to their web site.

Also, Alan has been unable to get his brand spanking new "HP" PDA to recharge. looks like there will be no written dispatches and no pictures.

At least the satellite phone is still working. I talked to Alan a couple of hours ago and he and the rest of the team are doing great. They are back on schedule and moving their loads up the mountain. The last cache was close to 14,000'.

Hopefully, HipCast will be back up soon so you will be able to hear the dispatches. I'll send out another message when it is up and running.

Thanks for your patience,

Looks like the audio is working well now. Paul.
