Transcript snippet from ‘My Life In The Death Zone’ podcast

Chris and Nims

C – Nims, how are you brother?

N – I’m good Chris, how are you doing?

C – Wonderful! As I was saying before, one day we can meet in Nepal and do some climbing, and we won’t have to speak over Zoom.

N – Well, we’re adapting, hopefully next year my man. This is positive I’m sure.

C – Yeah, I want to stand on the top of Mount Everest with you.

N – We’re going to make it happen buddy, we’re going to make it happen. ‘
