I Don’t Want to Be a Logger Living in Cascade, Idaho, I am familiar with going out and getting wood to keep us from freezing to death. Last year when we went to get wood, it was in the winter. I refused to go and work in the snow so I just pretended to be sleeping. The trick didn’t always work, but most of the time it did. My uncle is a logger, so he tells me crazy stories, like almost falling off a cliff, dragging heavy chains up big hills, giant boulders, and lots of medical bills.
22 climbers were killed that year and nobody had reached the summit. None of the names were told. The Mount Everest expedition in 1996 was also a bad year. It’s a well known expedition that involved many professionals also including amateurs. The expedition was very important to the people who worked as guides on Everest.
While the pilot was driving, he randomly had a massive heart attack, and since there was no medical assistance, he died within a couple of minutes. Brian was now all alone and terrified. When he finally came to his senses, he saw the radio the pilot used and he tried to reach out for help. His attempts failed. He luckily finds a lake and crashes into it, then he somehow escapes, very wounded.
So one time when he was up on a snow hill i gathered my friends and a good old friend shanna she has always been a good friend she is so nice so I called them for backup and i pushed him off and sat on him and started punching him i got in no trouble he was to embarrassed to admit it but I did tell my parents later that day just shows how bad ishpeming bully policy was and still is and later in about a year i had to take 1st grade again I was so mad I mean I had just taken it so I had to take it over because I was lazy and didn't want to do my homework I tried again and passed and went to second grade and got the worst teacher ever her name Mrs. greenlee she was the worst she made kids eat food out of the garbage and always got in my face and yelled at me and whenever I got my homework done and wanted to do some fun stuff she would say no dustin that is for the good kids like matthew and that made me mad so I got my revenge one day I got her fired she got in my face one to many times and she literally got fired but guess what a few years later she came back to the school and terrorized middle schoolers there are rumors that she yells and still gets in kids faces but she will get her karma for that and for what she did to me I still hate her. Onto third grade in third grade I went to a new school lakeview elementary but
Picture this! You are a thirteen year-old boy names Brian Robeson. You just watched the pilot of your single passenger plane suffer a heart attack. You somehow managed to keep the plan going and have just crashed it into a lake. Then you nearly drown and now need to find a way to survive.
After his ship sunk from being trapped in ice for so long, the problems increased but Shackleton managed to take charge and get everyone out alive. Rob Hall is the leader of the Adventure Consultants, a climbing team whose goal was to make it to the top of everest and down. Competing with other teams like Scott Fisher and Ian Woodall, Rob’s expedition had more of a competition factor. Being the leaders of each expedition, Shackleton and Rob both had very different challenges, but their leadership skills were similar in the fact that they both had to be
Now, in the modern age, Mount Everest is seen as a profit. For example, on April of 2014, there was an accident on Mount Everest. At around 6:30 A.M. a chunk of ice broke off a glacier and as it fell it created an avalanche on the mountain's south side (Barry). It trampled about 30 men while 13 bodies were found and three were still missing (Barry). No foreigners died during this avalanche since most of them were still sleeping.
My sister and I not really realizing the severity of the injury, we sat there as we waited for people to help. Going several hours back in time, my eight year old sister and ten year old I were driven to Wachusett Mountain, going to a ski lesson, unaware of the events to come. We ate a quick breakfast, packed our ski bags, and set off with our father chauffeuring us. It turned out that me and my sister were the only ones at that lesson that day, I being less than enthused. (I somewhat dislike my sister for many miscellaneous reasons, such as her wonderful personality.)
Climbing Mount Everest is a horrible idea because a lot of people have died,there are extreme weather conditions,and it affects the environment.So climbing Mount Everest is a bad because there is a diasease that people die by that because of oxygen and when you are climbing to the summit and you start feeling sleepy and if you leave your lungs you’ll die.The weather is really dangerous because if you don’t calculate your place that your going to camp you’ll die as well by freezing to death.People die too because in the book they said that Sun-jo’s father died because he had to save a group and his father was a shepard.Also when it gets cold there is ten degrees below zero and the wind howls a lot too.
He had already lost his mother, father, step-father and his aunt to cancer and that motivated him very much. Everybody doubted his ability to climb Everest, but that didn’t stop him. He went through five years of training and needed about that much time to raise the funds. In addition to money going towards the trip, he raised money for the Children’s Cancer Institute of Australia. Unfortunately this attempt , he didn’t succeed.
The next chapter was Carrie McCandless viewpoint on traveling to see where her older brother Christopher McCandless died. When Carrie was in the helicopter flying to the ominous bus, she could not believe that Chris had backpacked through such terrain and lived off the land for one hundred days. However, she always knew that if Chris put his mind to something, he would always achieve it. Finally, she saw the rundown school bus where her brother had died. She tried to be strong but failed, and wept.
I just finished the novel “ The Northern Light” by Jennifer Donnelly. The sad story of 16 years old Mattie Gokey working very hard with her father on a farm moved my heart badly. Her mother died because of poverty and cancer, her brother left home afterwards and she had to take care of her three younger sisters while also struggling with money just to make her mom’s wish. She cleaned the house of her Aunt and worked as a waitress too in Glenmore Hotel to save money. It reminded me of my past when I came to U.S in 2011.
No more skiing, for that was something she did with her dad. The local karate studio offered the family a free annual membership, but they turned it down. This too was family time with dad. At age 19, she completed her first half Ironman competition, which consists of swimming 1.2 miles, biking 56 miles and running 13.1 miles. After the race, tears surfaced for she knew Alan would have competed right by her
After track practice, I couldn’t even run, walk, and move because I pulled my hip flexor during sprinting in track practice. However it was my first year in states and I was not living with my parents, so I couldn’t tell to my host parents my hip flexor might tore, and I couldn’t get good treatment, therapy because I didn’t know what did I have to do and for international student, visiting doctor is too expensive. Therefore my injury lasted almost 2 months, and I couldn’t have good times in track meats. Also, after track season I was training kicking for next football season, unfortunately, during training I got shin splint, but I didn’t know hot to take care of shin splint. However after have more trainings shin splint got worse so that I
