NOTE ON SUMMITS. These are "reports of Summits", many times

This is not "meant" for anyone, if you think it is meant for
you or we are writing about you, then go look in the mirror and ask yourself

Everest, if anyone tells you they do, run... The best anyone can do is

man not always to tell the truth, but of course you knew that...
