Did I Ever Tell You About That Time I Went To The Roof Of The World?

The Aiguille du Mdi in Chamonix, France was a once in a lifetime experience. Teetering at the tip of a mountain peak at over 12,000ft up, it was about as much as my wimpy little heart could handle.

From the moment I stepped into the cable car and we began our first stage of the ascent my legs felt like jelly. Even so, it was something I knew that I had to experience. I stood in the gondola looking at the floor, too scared to look out at the ground fading away.

When we stepped out of the tram and onto the first platform, I remember asking Kenny if he felt the mountain swaying too. Of course he didn’t. I think I was about to start hyperventilating. But up we went in the elevator to the upper most viewing level and out into the sunshine.

Taking in the view from the roof of the world was worth being scared.

Ride Report: Return from the Edge of Void Rally 9

I have returned from peering over the edge of the Void 9. A big ‘thank you’ goes out to everyone who followed along on the SPOT and sent words of encouragement. You guys are the best.

The wet weather definitely made for additional challenges. But was I triumphant in my quest? Well, you’ll just have to read the full ride report to find out.

Travel Souvenirs – Send me a Postcard, Please!

I’m so knocked out by how many people have sent in their addresses to get a postcard from me. Thank you! I’d love to get postcards from you, too. If your pen is burning a hole in your pocket and you want to send me a postcard from your travels, please do!

Thanks again, Kathy for the inspiration!

And thanks, Ed for the Fuzzy girl image!
