Here’s a story I wrote for Fathom, a new (read amazing) travel website and guide. From tracking black rhinos in the bush to swimming in Victoria Falls, it was the adventure of a lifetime. If you like adrenaline, as I do, put Zambia on your bucket list. Go.

The Two-Million-Foot Man: Greg Hill

11 Feb


Over the course of one calendar year, Greg Hill skinned, skied, and climbed two-million-vertical feet. That’s the equivalent of climbing Everest 69 times. Crazy! On December 31, 2010, in the backcountry outside of Revelstoke, BC, Hill summitted the two-million-foot-tall mountain. Then, he cracked a bottle of champagne and he skied some untracked powder.
