Mike’s cousin, Leslie Trussler, shared this picture and memory of Mike, with Thunder Radio:
“Mike and I did so many adventures from miles and miles on the Appalachian Trail to Cotapaxi, Equador to Nepal. One of the most memorable times was this day. We spent a month in Nepal and 17 days in the Himalayan mountains in 2016.
The night we summitted this 20,300 foot peak with Everest over our shoulder, I woke up at midnight with ice dripping off the top of the tent and Mike snoring in my ear. We hiked and hiked, and it sunrise at 6 AM, we summitted this peak. It’s the highest either one of us have ever been. The day was long, and there were many more adventures, but this is one that was probably most memorable to both of us. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, and Mike agreed.”
