Dad is skiing at the South Col

What can we say? While Sir Hillary, 82, is wheelchaired in to Kathmandu to celebrate his 50 year old summit and whining that Everest should be closed down to everyone else, Grandpa Miura, 70, just spent 5 days in the Everest deathzone (2 of those in camp V, 8300m) - and summited two nights ago. So now he is getting help to stumble back down to BC, right? Wrong!

-"Oh dad?", told the son yesterday to Luanne Freer (BC MD); "he is skiing at the South Col."
