Title: Lorenzo Gariano Everest webcast
Post by: Chris Valentine on Sep 1 2005, 02:15
On the evening of Wednesday 12th October 2005, Lorenzo Gariano, who was part of Alex's team to Everest earlier this year will present a talk on his (and their) adventures. If you are unable to attend in person, at The Open University in Milton Keynes, UK, you can tune in to the webcast via:

Our department at the OU provided the technology behind the audio blog Lorenzo recorded as the adventure progressed.

I just watched and listened to Lorenzo's talk at the Open University in the UK.  It was brilliant!  The slide show he presented was wonderful.  It took me back to April/May 2005 when so many of us were consumed with this amazing Everest expedition.

Great job, Lorenzo!

Thank you, Chris, for letting us know this talk was taking place and for giving us the link.

Gratefully,
MC

I too have just watched Lorenzo's webcast and just wanted to add my thanks for an amazing insight into the perils of climbing everest. 

Well done Lorenzo.  You must be so grateful to have made it back in one piece and to have had such an amazing experience. 

May those who have been less fortunate rest in peace in such a wonderful place on earth - Om Mani Padme Hum

I bet doggy will still be there when you go back next year!  All the best with your next attempt.

Thanks to those of you who came along (around 45) and who tuned in to the event. Apologies that it started a little late.

We are looking to 'up the ante' for next year's trip by adding photos and perhaps short video clips to the blog.

Chris.
