Hi Everyone,

I am delighted to announce that we have just exceeded the One Million Hits Mark… all thanks to YOU!

Two Million Strides separate the Hercules Inlet from the South Pole. We’ve just covered the First Million…

The North Pole is ahead of us, in Spring 2009, and in between now and then we’ve got La Patrouille Des Cedres. It’s going to be a busy year, so the Second Million will come just as fast as the first.

Stay tuned to TheThreePoles.com and Thank you Again!

–Max

The First Man to climb Everest has Died

A Moment of Silence for Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to climb the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest, has died aged 88.

He was the first man to climb the 8,850m (29,035ft) peak, with Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, on 29 May 1953.

Returning to Everest base camp, he famously greeted another member of the British expedition group with the words: “Well, George, we’ve knocked the bastard off.”

After the ascent, Sir Edmund led a number of expeditions to the South Pole and devoted his life to helping the Sherpas of Nepal’s Khumbu region.

His Himalayan Trust has helped build hospitals, clinics, bridges, airstrips and nearly 30 schools. He was made an honorary Nepalese citizen in 2003.
