Lifetime is interested in my story

Mark Inglis has become the first double amputee to scale Mt. Everest, which is the highest peak in the world at 29,035 ft. Inglis lost both his legs after being stuck in an ice cave on Mt. Cook in New Zealand for 14 days in 1982.




I don't know how many of my readers know this, but I, too, triumphed over adversity in order to scale a mountain.

I climbed Bear Peak (8461 ft.) in Boulder once when I had a really bad hangover.

I scraped my leg on a rock and scuffed up my Skechers pretty bad, but it was so worth it!

In a former life I was a mountain climber and surfer. Now I am just a suburban dad. Cool picture though.

Plus, you had to carry me on your back for a while, remember?

Hey, I never claimed to have done it without the aid of sherpas.
