 Making AIDS History

Hello my friends, The Pup & I have returned safely from our Adirondack adventure having endured 4 hours in the pouring rain and being turned back only .5 miles from the summit because of lightning (the day before 13 people were hit).  In sopping wet boots I went up again the next day in beautiful weather and enjoyed an awesome view from the top, 5,114' above sea level. We had our first three bear encounters and I really did see a tree fall in the woods!!!! Does that mean that it didn't happen?


Tom West....


[Tom, we want to know: Did the Pup or you make it up first?]


Update: I have to tell the truth...the Pup (Chloe, a Siberian Husky) reached the true summit of Algonquin shortly before 1:00pm and was followed by me a moment later. Chloe was ready for more and I was huffing and puffing and looking for a nice place to rest. Thanks... Have a good day... Tom


On a serious note, Tom will leave us again in September. Maybe this is something that interests you. 


Tom West, he has not Summited Everest, he has not climbed an 8000 meter peak. You have never seen his name on EverestNews.com. But he has edited EverestNews.com for the last year or so. He has put 1000's of hours into making EverestNews.com better for You ! Now you can help him in his cause ! Please read below and consider giving to his good cause.


My name is Tom West, VaccineRider 31260, and I am a volunteer here at EverestNews.com. From September 5 through 9, 2001 I will be participating in the Pallotta Teamworks Canada-US Aids/VaccineRide. This ride is to raise money and awareness for HIV/AIDS. I will be riding my bicycle from Montreal, Canada to Portland, Maine, USA.  This ride will take me 400 miles in 5 days, not as big a deal as climbing Everest, but it is every bit as important to me! 34 million people in the world today are infected with HIV/AIDS and something must be done to help eliminate what has become the worlds most equal opportunity killer.

Please contribute to my cause by going to www.vaccineride.org and click on the Canada-US ride and make a contribution to VaccineRider 31260. I thank you in advance for your support, as I will not be able to ride without it.

One planet, One people…working to make AIDS History.
