10% off your first purchase. So you talk about experience and looking to new things. How do you go from doing all these climbs? The next kayaking, the Grand Canyon. What inspired that for you? Uh, it was partly PVR team leader on Everest. I was coming down from the mountain. It was I was really crushed. You know, you're pretty tired and got down through the Khumbu Icefall, which is, um, kind of a blind person's worst nightmare. And Peavy said to me, He said, Eric, you know, do me a favor, Don't make Everest the greatest thing you ever do. And it was pretty shocking because I was like, Well, first of all, that's probably the greatest thing I'll ever do. TV And what he was saying was, You know, there's so many moments in your life that air pivotal, you know, And those things can sort of be the crowning moment. You know, they can, you know, you hang your trophies, you hang your pictures up and you place your trophies up, and then that room becomes kind of your funeral. And, you know, don't Don't let this be your funeral. Like, let this be a catalyst, Thio more growth and learning and, you know, moving forward in some really cool way. Even though you may not know where it's going to lead you, everything becomes a catalyst to something new rather than being the thing where you pound your chest and go look at me. Okay, Now I could go set.
