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.|
