Channel 5 feature on One Sherpa Home.

Reporter Eric Wilkinson came to my home last week and interviewed me for a feature on One Sherpa Home. This link will take you to that story;

The station featured this blog and the GoFundMe address on their website. Several hundred blog visits followed immediately, and another $700 came into out fundraiser. Many thanks to Eric and the crew at King 5 News!

The rest of the OSH Away Team

Jess Shaffer, OSH Chief Carpenter, and his wife Mary Ann.

Jess Shaffer worked as a journeyman carpenter for the better part of 30 years before retiring recently. Like the rest of our Away Team, Jess brings essential skills and a deep background in trekking. Jess has worked closely with myself and our Architect to solve any design riddles ahead of time, exchanging emails on a regular basis. Many years ago Jess had a chance to go see Nepal and passed. He has regretted that choice, and this trip represents one of those rare do-overs in life.

Claus and Annette Wilson Christensen
This is my Aunt and her husband Claus. Both are retired after long successful careers and now spend time growing grapes in the beautiful rolling hills of Dundee, Oregon. Being restless souls, they leave their vineyard often to trek places like Patagonia and Bhutan. Claus will bring broad building skills to OSH with a precision for detail typical of Danes. Annette will bring her trademark sense of humor and a wellspring of positive energy. She plans to also bring children's books, which are always in short supply that far up the Khumbu.

We are just $1,000 away from our funding goal! Please consider giving to One Sherpa Home at
