Alan in down suit with oxygen
Alan in his down suit with oxygen. Can you see the tube running down his front?
We used extra oxygen to climb Everest. The oxygen was in big metal bottles I carried in my backpack. I looked like a spaceman with the mask on my face. Since it was very cold and windy, I wore a puffy suit that was filled with goose feathers just like in my sleeping bag. I also had a hood that protected my head and I had gloves for my hands. I wore goggles to protect my eyes.
