I am just a very normal person, from a council estate in Luton, who has the biggest of dreams. I want to be the 60th woman EVER to climb the Seven Summits. (The tallest mountain on each continent)
I read a book about Everest when I was at school in Luton and was totally inspired by it. In the intervening years I got lost in a mountain of personal issues, loss and depression. But somehow twenty years later, the dream came and found me again. On May 21st 2007 I stood at the summit of Mount Everest. I was 'on top of the world' in every possible way.
It was an epic three month adventure, where I saw incredible pain, suffering and death. I even had a tooth extracted with a swiss army knife and a screw driver. (video footage available on youtube)
But now I want to finish the dream before my 45 year old body decides it doesn't want to carry 25kg backpacks up big mountains any more. I have already climbed FOUR of the Seven, Everest, Aconcagua, Mt McKinley and Elbrus. That leaves just three to go.....
1 Vinson Massif, - https://www.adventureconsultants.com/expeditions/seven-summits/vinson-massif/
2 Carstesz Pyramid -https://www.adventureconsultants.com/expeditions/seven-summits/carstensz-pyramid/
3 Kilimanjaro - https://www.adventureconsultants.com/expeditions/seven-summits/kilimanjaro/
So I need help with my dream, to finish the final three mountains and complete the box set. Just the small matter of £60,931.00 and 3 big mountains! So any financial help you can give, no matter how small would be amazing.
Meantime, more information is available at my website at: www.andreaoneverest.com
Please, help me if you can.
What about you? What is your dream? Next
