    Not a bad place to stay forever. Its a place you get left behind for the safety of others.

    Re: Abandoned on Everest

    They bring down some corpses from time to time, but it's not surprising that the dead get left behind in such a hostile environment (assuming folks know where people died).

    However, what is troubling are the stories of groups to putting their aspirations of reaching the summit before the lives of fellow climbers.

    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    I think we should just leave people where they die as common practice. Ill probably die at my office computer so that would be weird.
