Mallory, come quickly! – great chat with Scott Parazynski and Keith Cowing  this morning (EDT) – their afternoon (Everest time). Scott is in good spirits and “feeling strong like bull”. He was joined by Keith Cowing (who is his multimedia sherpa for this season). Eric Simonson, the lead dog at IMG made a cameo as well.

You can follow Scott’s footsteps here courtesy of the SPOT satellite tracking device.

And you can read Scott’s blog here. It is quite a tale of high adventure.

    Thx so much for taking your audience — myself including — to Everest. It’s so voyeuristic to be able to watch this on True/Slant. I watched every second!
