The bright sun is streaming into Green Valley Ranch Resort as conventioneers file into an auditorium, some slightly hung over, a few munching the bacon and eggs served at the buffet next door. Two hundred and fifty chairs are occupied when the heavy doors close, sealing the room from the ringing of slot machines outside. Like explorers in a snow-covered valley moments before an avalanche, the audience has no idea what is about to hit them.

Regarding "The Real Payoff After Everest" [May 3]: I was at that conference and was fortunate to hear Jamie Clarke speak. It was a great presentation. Whether or not it was enough "business-related" -- we got plenty of upsell from another presentation.

Less than two years ago, the bitter cold of Mt. Everest made heating water for tea a formidable task for Jamie Clarke. Now he's got more than enough heat but barely enough water. Clarke, a Canadian who climbed the Himalayan peak in 1997, is trekking across Saudi Arabia's Empty Quarter, infamous for its quicksand, mountainous sand dunes and blazing heat.
