Top O' The World Ma!

Here at PTB, we always wanted to be world famous adventurers. Then we found out you needed heart, skill, brains, money and intestinal fortitude. We’ve been living in mom & dad’s basement ever since.

That’s why the passing of Sir Edmund Hillary has us so bummed. Check it…

Back when Big Ed and his sherpa Tenzing Norgay climed the biggest, baddest most dangerous lump on the planet, he did it without modern equipment. No GPS units…no Starbucks lattes. It’s the equivalent of winning the Indy 500 in a Yugo. Simply. Amazing.

So today we salute Sir Edmund Hillary and his monster-sized cojones. If there were more people like him in the world…things would be a lot more adventurous.
