Totally random, but I cannot stress to you the importance of scar care and massage. If you ignore the scar tissue, it can harden. Moisturize and massage every day as often as you should to keep the skin soft and pliable. http://www.livestrong.com/article/135473-breast-massage-techniques-after-augmentation/#page=1

Congrats on your successful surgery!

Where were you a week ago when I found an Emerald Hummingbird having (what seemed like) a seizure in a parking garage in Atlanta? Holding him until he passed, so he wouldn't be alone was super hard for me - and I didn't know what to do. :(

I'd like to recommend the book, "Into Thin Air" by Jon Krakauer. It's a book detailing the author's personal ascent of Everest - the very trek that /u/jbeede mentioned above, where Scott Fisher died.

I, too, though that with modern technology, it'd be the same as climbing most any mountain in the snow. But after reading this book, I have a better (and more intimate?) understanding of the real challenges, difficulties, and dangers that these climbers undertake - and the very serious and mortal consequences than even one stupid mistake or careless error can have on the person who errs, and the ripple it can have throughout the entire climbing group. One person messes up, and it could very easily mean no one goes home.

Even if it doesn't change your mind, or it only solidifies your beliefs, it's still a great adventure book by a great author.

Have you watched The Grand Tour episode about their crossing Mongolia? (It’s worth the hour of your time as research if you haven’t. )
