Father Michael Kennedy reports, "Two days on the route and all night rappelling back down. Sounds like they found some hard mixed climbing up high and funkier weather than expected. Safe and sound in base camp now."

Trekking and Mountaineering excites me a lot. I often sit on the net and search for the trekking trails to go for. I found Nepal quite interesting place to be. Nice trekking trails, mountains and more suitable for adventure seekers, trekkers and peak climbers. Nepal has unique landscapes, many of the world tallest mountains lies in Nepal including the world highest peak Mt Everest. ^^<a href="http://www.nepalexpeditions.biz/"^^>Nepal peak climbing

From a historical perspective it is a rare feat for a father to progress his field (ex. Infinite Spur) and also his progeny.

Someday I hope to read a "dueling" article, banjo style from both generations, once the age of introspection is met.

In the interim safe travels.
