Tag Archive: Poon Hill


September 18, 1966, the day I met this lovely young lady! That started our relationship, and we “never looked back!” We have been married 53 years, and are looking to many more great years together. Alice had seen me on a bus on September 17. She had observed that a young lady got on the bus, and she saw me give up my seat for her. She never thought more of it, until she met me the next day! National Wife Appreciation Day, also falls on September 18, this year! I appreciate all the miles my wife has traveled with me, supporting me in so many ways! This photo was taken on the East Coast of the U.S. From the hat, you can tell that we also climbed the trek up to Poon Hill in Nepal, which was a part of our 40th wedding anniversary!

We met at college

Courted for one-thousand days

Then wedded for life

POON HILL OR BUST

Here I am taking a break in my 300 m climb from our hotel (Hotel Snowland) to Poon Hill which is at 3,210 m (10, 531.496 063 feet).  I could tell that I was at a high altitude, because of the frequent rest stops I needed.
