“The votes—nearly 72,000 of them—are in, and we’re pleased to announce that Sano Babu Sunuwar and Lakpa Tsheri Sherpa are the 2012 People’s Choice Adventurers of the Year. Their Ultimate Descent expedition to climb Everest, paraglide down, and paddle to the sea truly embodies the spirit of adventure. With borrowed gear and a bare-bones budget, there were no corporate sponsors nor social media campaigns, just the essentials for adventure—vision, creativity, and friendship.”
People can do incredible things. I hope someday I accomplish something awesome like this.
