Anybody that's traveled extensively will tell you that eventually your ego gets involved in your travel decision making. At a certain point, a point which surely depends on the person, you start to count the countries you've been to, and you begin to collect the "notches under your belt". When you're making travel plans, you start to consider neighboring countries to your prime destination, not because they're of particular interest to you, but because you feel like you're so close you may as well check it off the list. It's at this point that you have to ask yourself, what constitutes a visit to a country?

Climbing to Everest Base Camp does not have to be very expensive. In order to determine how much you should expect to pay, you'll first need to decide what type of trek you want to take, and how much time you have available. Another important factor in determining how much your trip will cost is the number of people in your group. With more people, you can share porters and a guide, cutting costs for each person.

Climbing Mt. Whitney In the Snow Trip Report & Guide

Struggling At the End of the Chute
Me struggling as I finish the hike up the Mt. Whitney snow chute

Mt. Whitney, the tallest point in the Sierra Nevadas and continental United States, is a popular climb during the California summer months. At around 21 miles round trip, climbing 6,132ft up to the peak at 14,497ft (4,418.69m), the hike is a doable in a day, but a challenge for those not in good shape (like me).  As if it weren't enough of a challenge already, we attempted the summit early in the season while it still had a lot of snow cover.
