Right on! Climb on!
Still sounding good and managing to keep in touch. You are one hell of a guy and it’s great to be climbing along side. Cheers Kate
The first thing I do each morning is look for an email from you! Your positive attitude inspires me to be a better person. Since my mother, too, died of Alzheimer’s disease, I am going to make a donation to go toward research to find a cure. I am praying that you will have plenty of energy and strength to make it safely back down to base camp from the top! Oh, and Happy Birthday !
You know I am sending you strength, protection, and success from my arm chair! Climb on to the top and back.
You’re sounding wonderful…continued prayers for everyone’s safety.
You sound wonderful. God bless all of you with a safe and successful summit and an equally safe descent
It doesn’t get much better than this for a positive outlook for your K2 summit bid on the morning of your birthday! I can’t wait to hear your words from the summit. I know you climb for all of us who long for an end to this cruel disease and am grateful for your leadership, your courage and your tenacity. Prayers continue for the safety and success of all on the mountain. Climb high! Climb safe! Climb On! We are with you every step of the way. #K2CureAlz

Alan, you sound amazing!!! As Jim said, there have been some successful summits on peaks nearby. You are so close, we are all rooting for you! What an incredible journey!
Love your updates Alan! Wishing you well on your journey to the top!!!
Alan – you sound great. Things are lining up very well. Over the last few days people have been summitting the other 8,000 meter peaks close by you, so perhaps the snow conditions up high are good in your area. Climb on!
You are inspiring! Thank you for taking the message about Alzheimer’s to the summit.
Alan: You sound so good…strong and excited. Climb on, Alan. We are all rooting for you!
Sounds great, Alan !!
Climb on, my friend, may Allah protect you and your buddies and all others on the mountain, Aameen.

Can’t agree more! You sound great! Go Alan, go. And always take care. You know what Ed said: “Getting to the top is optional. Getting down is mandatory.” All the best from Germany!
