Classic Worst Climbs
BY MIKE BESTWICK
@ VOL 6
ON NOV 01, 2018
We've all heard of "best of" lists: best albums, best cheeseburgers, best PechaKucha speakers, what have you. So what did Mike Bestwick do? He flipped the script. Trying to climb the highest peak in Glacier National Park in a single day would indeed be worthy of inclusion on a best-of list, if not for the cold, hard realities that accompany an adventure of this magnatude. No food? No daylight? No problem for Mike! (just don't ask him about prescription painkillers)
High Mountains: Reflections on the Power of Place
BY LESYA NIKOLAYEVA
@ VOL 6
ON NOV 01, 2018
In Lesya Nikolayeva's presentation, she would like to share her personal attitude toward the mountains and all the feelings she deals with when she's there. Apart from the ambition to reach the top – and all the dangerous situations that implies – Lesya finds that she faces a wide spectrum of emotions, from the dullness of basic routine to the deeply philosophical and exhilarating. Indeed, most of her thoughts on the mountains are philosophical.

PechaKucha Loves Thursdays
We've been noticing lately that Thursday nights tend to be particularly crowded when it comes to PechaKucha Nights -- it probably makes for a good early-weekend outing -- and then we saw on the PKN calendar that tomorrow night (Thursday, November 18) there are in fact 11 PKNs scheduled! Not only that, this month marks another 80+ events overall, and the worldwide city count keeps on climbing, now at the 369 mark. That's a lot of PechaKucha love going on in the world!

Fuji” from PKN Tokyo Vol. 117 he shows us that, from his experience of climbing up with the mountain with his friends, there is much excitement and trials to endure while on such an adventure.
