Skydiving from 29000 ft near Mt Everest and landing at "the highest drop zone on the planet".

Seems a bit insane to me.

If they are landing at 12,500 feet they wont be that close to Mount Everest.

Its really just a high altitude jump next to a big mountain.

Bear Grylls has already done this. He also flew over the summit in an ultralight.

And he climbed to the summit. And he almost made me gag the other night when he took a bite out of a live snake.

Nah, college is much different than K-12. Like comparing apples to oranges. Our kids will go. That is, they will if we have any money left after all the banks go under this weekend.
