Trekker finds Everest climb much tougher than advertised
Now that he's climbed to Mt. Everest's base camp, Vern Loehr has ripped up his "bucket list" -- a list of things to do before he dies.
The 68-year-old New Richmond resident no longer wants to put himself in danger.
"My legs will take me wherever I want to go," Loehr said of his relatively good health. "Trouble is, they'll take me places I shouldn't go. This was one of those times."
