26 NISAN / APRIL 26

Yolda diger ekiplerden insanlarla karsilasiyoruz. Herkesin morali sifir. Diger ekiplerin Sherpalariyla konusuyoruz, olenlerden kuzen olanlar var, kardes olanlar var. Yine aglasiyoruz. Debouche’de gecelemek icin duruyoruz. Aksam, “Into Thin Air”den uyarlanan film cekimlerinde 1996 trajedisindeki onemli isimlerden biri olan Scott Fisher’in dublorlugunu yapmak icin gelmis olan ama hersey iptal olunca donuse gecmis Neil Beidleman ile karsilasiyoruz. Neil, 1996’daki kaza sonrasinda kurtarma operasyonlarinda rol almis onemli bir kisilik. O da herkes gibi cok uzgun ve yipranmis. Holywood’un harcadigi milyonlardan sonra tekrar Everest’e gelmeyecegini ama baska bir dagda kalan cekimleri tamamlayacagini dusundugunu soyluyor. Bence iyi fikir, bu sene dag sirk gibi biseye donusuyordu zaten, heryerde film sirketleri, zirveden atlayacak bir tip, vs…

…………………………………………..

On way down, we meet people from other teams. Everyone is down big time. Some Sherpas tell us how they lost their cousins, brothers, etc. Tears again. 

We stop at Debouche to spend the night. We come across Neil Beidleman who was going to play Scott Fisher’s double in the movie adapted from Into thin Air. He is one of the important names in the rescue operations of 1996 accidents on the mountain. He is also super sad and exhausted. He thinks Holywood won’t be coming back to Everest after spending millions of dollars but instead probably would go to another mountain to complete the footage they are missing. I think that’s a good idea. It was becoming like a circus up there with these film companies and jumping stunts, etc.
