Sir Edmund Hillary (The first man to climb Everest)

Fun Fact #1: Despite being the first person to summit Mt. Everest, he was only the second to relieve himself after climbing Mt. Everest...

Favorite memory of Wild Man: When I was approaching the summit of Everest  for the first time, the sun was becoming very strong with the thinning atmosphere.  My skin had begun to blister and I realized that I had forgotten to slip the sun screen into my pack.  I was worried that this might lead to skin cancer in about 30 years, but then I looked up and Wild Man came bounding down the mountain bringing me some 50 spf sunscreen.  I have no idea how he got up there—wait a minute…oh…crap.”

Fun Fact #1 (continued): ...His climbing sherpa Tenzing Norgay had eaten two Nacho Cheese Chalupa’s that morning. Directly after summiting he dashed behind a snowy rock, and had some “urgent business.” Tenzing said he felt kind of bad because he was, “Dumping on top of the whole world”...


Fun Fact #1 (continued): ...Thankfully Tenzing had brought some 2-ply toilet paper. This had been a big fight. Tenzing had wanted to bring 1-ply “In order to save on weight during the long journey,” but Edmund had convinced him that if he planned to bring Chalupa’s they should “Definitely bring 2-ply.” This was a decision for which Tenzing was “Forever grateful.”

Wild Man on his journey. This picture is a metaphor for life.

Anything could be around that bend. Unfortunatley for Wild Man it was more miles of endless forest and not the Tom Petty concert he was looking for.
