Father-Son Team Goes for Seven Summits

Scott Grischow used to live in Dallas. Now he lives in Houston, where he’s a managing director at an outfit called FTI. Scott’s dad, Don, who is 62 lives in town and has worked for the North American Coal Corporation for more than 30 years. Why am I telling you about these guys? Because they’re working their way up and down the seven tallest summits on the seven continents. They started in 2003 and have knocked out five of them. And right about now, the guys are leaving Kathmandu, headed toward Everest. You can follow their progress here, on a site set up by the expedition organizer. Scott has his own site, but there’s nothing on the blog — which to anyone in Dallas who knows the Grischows should be taken as a sign of laziness, not of a tragedy having befallen Scott and Don. (Come on, Scott! It’s 2010! Would it kill you to tweet some pics?!)
