Matt Galat and Mount Everest

If all has proceeded according to yesterday’s plan, today Matt Galat is summiting Mount Everest! You can listen to his latest podcasts if you click HERE. I have not seen any new video footage recently, but I suspect he will shoot something on the way up, or at least once on the highest pinnacle of Planet Earth. Here are a couple of still shots:

Once he gets this accomplished, he will be back on his recumbent trike pedaling Earth.

    Matt’s group is at Camp 2. Although he is not posting anything until after he gets back, the company that is supporting his summit attempt (Global Adventures) is posting daily from Everest Base Camp with the team’s status. If you want to follow you can get updates at .

    From Camp 2: “We spoke to the Adventures Global team this morning up at Camp2. They all slept extremely well last night and look forward to enjoying a rest day. Our Sherpas are carrying some oxygen and a few other supplies up to Camp3 today, in anticipation of the move up the Lhotse Face tomorrow. We will be checking in with the team during the course of the day and will keep you posted in terms of how they are doing.”

  3. Hey Matt, just wanted to say “Keep smiling and thinking happy thoughts”. Even with all over the challenges challenges that have been put in front of you. You’ve continued to move forward. I have enjoyed watching the JaYoe world tour, and I have gotten a few individuals to watch it with me.

    JaYoe, and again “Keep smiling and thinking happy thoughts”.
