FOOTNOTE IN HISTORY: This week, incidentally, is the anniversary of the death of Göran Kropp
of Sweden, who bicycled to Mount Everest from his home in Sweden, summitted the mountain without the aid of oxygen tanks or assistance, and then cycled back to Sweden with his gear. He was, the history books record, the first person to do so.
