On top of the world

On top of the world

Mike Posner climbed 29,032 feet summit in 50 days in support of the Detroit Justice Center and the work they do in the criminal justice realm — something his late dad was passionate about. At a height of 29,000 feet, Mount Everest is the world’s highest mountain.

Lyrics

I’m ’bout to do this shit, sick of sitting here
Only got a couple years before I disappear
I don’t know, I’m just a man
But there’s more inside me than these people understand

Oh, I think it’s time I went and found a way

I’m looking for something different to clear my mind
I’m headed to someplace distant, that I might not find
And I know that you’re worried, I won’t make it, but
No, don’t worry, I’m gon’ make it home (home, home)

I could die, I’ma do it though
Hope my life becomes a symbol of what’s beautiful
Take it thеre, make it back
All thesе people think I’m crazy, I’m okay with that

Oh, I think it’s time I went and found a way

I’m looking for something different to clear my mind
I’m headed to someplace distant, that I might not find
And I know that you’re worried, I won’t make it, but
No, don’t worry, I’m gon’ make it home

A place where you are the only one around

A place where you are the only one around

 

[Goal Zero]

Nearly seven years ago, climbers Mark and Janelle Smiley set out to climb a long list of difficult routes made famous by a 1979 guidebook aptly titled “Fifty Classic Climbs of North America”.
Their goal was to document their journey up more than 150K vertical feet of rock, ice, and glaciated technical terrain from New Mexico to Alaska. They have had Goal Zero products with them almost since the beginning and we have been proud to power their journey.  Follow their journey HERE
