Flying Off Everest

by Dave Costello, Flying Off Everest Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Flying Off Everest books, Perched impossibly on a ridge overlooking a 10,000-foot drop into Tibet, Sano Babu Sunuwar and Lakpa Tsheri Sherpa wait. Heel to toe, connected at the waist by a pair of carabineers that’s connected to nothing else, they stare down the North Face of Mount Everest, a red and white nylon tandem paragliding wing fluttering behind them. They know that jumping off the top of the world marks only the beginning of a longer, more audacious journey. And they know that the two-mile ride down Everest will be the easiest part. If the jump doesn’t kill them. In April 2011 the two unsponsored Nepalis set out on an unprecedented expedition to climb Everest, paraglide from its peak, and paddle nearly 400 miles to the ocean. Little problems wouldn’t stop them. Like the fact that Babu had no technical climbing experience. And that Lakpa had never been kayaking—or swimming. But after summiting, surviving their flight off the world’s tallest mountain, and being arrested, robbed, and nearly drowned—repeatedly—the two friends discovered their adventure had only just begun.

Dark Summit

by Nick Heil, Dark Summit Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Dark Summit books, The inside story of the deadly 2006 climbing season on Everest On May 15, 2006, a young British climber named David Sharp lay dying near the top of Mount Everest while forty other climbers walked past him on their way to the summit. A week later, Lincoln Hall, a seasoned Australian climber, was left for dead near the same spot. Hall's death was reported around the world, but the next day he was found alive after spending the night on the upper mountain with no food and no shelter. If David Sharp's death was shocking, it was hardly singular: despite unusually good weather, ten others died attempting to reach the summit that year. In this meticulous inquiry into what went wrong, Nick Heil tells the full story of the deadliest year on Everest since the infamous season of 1996. He introduces Russell Brice, the commercial operator who has done more than anyone to provide access to the summit via the mountain's north side—and who some believe was partly accountable for Sharp's death. As more climbers attempt the summit each year, Heil shows how increasingly risky expeditions and unscrupulous outfitters threaten to turn Everest into a deadly circus. Written by an experienced climber and outdoor writer, Dark Summit is both a riveting account of a notorious climbing season and a troubling investigation into whether the pursuit of the ultimate mountaineering prize has spiraled out of control.

Into Hot Air

by Chris Elliott, Into Hot Air Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Into Hot Air books, Now in paperback: For decades the world has credited renowned explorer Sir Edmund Hillary with being the first person to reach the peak of Mount Everest. But was he? Evidence to the contrary arrives one day on the doorstep of Chris Elliott--an anonymous package that contains the diary of his Great Uncle Percy Brackett Elliott, an adventurer (and raving loony) who mysteriously disappeared decades ago while climbing Everest. The diary seems to indicate that Percy--not Hillary--was the first person to reach the peak. By retracing Percy's journey, Chris believes he will be able to uncover the mystery behind his disappearance and perhaps once and for all determine who was really the first person to summit Everest.

Fitness Central The Reader

by Rahul Mookerjee, Fitness Central The Reader Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Fitness Central The Reader books, Back when I started www.rahulmookerjee.com - - I never, ever thought it would morph into a full time business like it is now. From Fast and Furious Fitness – to Gorilla Grip – to 0 Excuses Fitness – Gumption Galore, and everything else we’ve put out thus far, it’s been a wild wild ride, and it promises to get even better! The comments and feedback we receive on a regular basis via social media and email etc is something that makes it ALL worth it. If there is something that folks love about us, it’s our direct, in your face, NO nonsense style - - not just with regard to fitness instruction, but the 0 Excuses Fitness philosophy as well – as well as our daily fitness tips that we put out on a regular basis that people wake up to every morning! It is THESE fits, and the “rambunctious” ovation to these tips that I put out the first Edition of Fitness Central – then the second – then the third – all in all, a mind boggling 153 fitness tips - - but now (and despite the feedback I’ve gotten), I’ll go one BETTER. Instead of purchasing all three fitness manuals separately, you can now purchase them all as ONE reader - - one giant MOTIVATIONAL fitness package as it were - - with all the same tips as in the three books - - but at a reduced price. Truth be told, I could charge you upwards of $100 for EACH of the fitness books, and you’d still get your money’s value and THEN SOME. Truth be told, even ONE of these tips by themselves is worth their worth in GOLD – spades – mucho dinero – what have you! And truth be told, the BENEFITS you’ll get from following even one of these tips far, far outweighs what you’ll get from following the “staid ole routines” at the gym for years! Now, if you’re with me thus far, and if you’ve cracked open even one of the Fitness Central books, you KNOW the benefits you’ll get from these books. Just in case you aren’t though, and just in case you chance upon this package “first up”, here are (at a glance) some of the benefits you’ll get from this book - - -Finger tip pushups, and what you really need to know about them!-Why the way your muscles “look” aren’t the most important – or even a little bit important. -The skinny on grip strength and building rock solid, coruscating levels of “kung fu” like grip strength. My manuals on grip training do a great job here ... and these tips are but the icing on the cake - - but a much needing icing! -The truth about calluses that most people will NOT tell you. -The one exercise combo that will give you explosive gains all over your upper body. Once you go this route, you’ll never go back … trust me! -How shorter workouts can be just as - - in fact, way more effective than the long, drawn out workouts you’ve been advised to do - - and how they benefit your HEALTH and MINDSET more than you could ever imagine! -How foreign devils in China workout - -and why these workouts are so brutally effective! Yet another one “for the books” as it were … -Why your breath is literally the most important thing you should focus upon during your exercise routine - - and how you can burn fat off your frame almost instantly once you start applying the right breathing techniques. Believe me - - THIS tip alone is something most folks would be happy to drop more than a hundred smackers on to learn! -You’ll learn about my much vaunted and much famous (all over the Internet) hill climb from China, and how it benefited me, and how similar workouts can benefit YOU! -You will learn how to get cardio workouts in like NEVER before – workouts that take less than 15 minutes, and leave you soaked in sweat, burning fat like never before and feeling on TOP of the world! -How to lose weight rapidly – and do it FAST. This is unconventional. You won’t see this information anywhere else. And yet … does it work? You bet your “betsy” it does! And much, much more, my friend. Grab it now - and write back and let me know how you do!!
