The window for “topping off” – as they say in the mountaineering biz – is now “moving to the right” – as they say in the rocket biz. For Scott, this means more time to (literally) cool his heels at Everest Base Camp. In my latest Skype vidchat with him, he allowed how it can be at times tedious – and lonely for a dad and husband.
