Remember the Swedish guy who rode his bike from Stockholm to Everest, climbed the summit, then rode his bike home? Goran Kropp was killed after a fall while climbing near Vantage, WA yesterday.

Here is the story. Goran Kropp was way cool for what he had accomplished. What a lost.

Well. I guess my information was way too slow. This was supposed to be Oct/01 news and I just saw now. It was still a big lost.

I feel your sense of loss as well. Just wanted to note that I read Kropp's book, Ultimate High, having never heard of him and I really enjoyed it. I thought it was an excellent account of a determined outdoorsman. Not only were his skills impressive, but his will power and discipline were inspiring as well. He has passed on, but definitely not without leaving his mark on this world. cheers to Goran Kropp.
