Jost Kobusch a young extreme mountaineer wants to climb over the 8000 meters altitude mark… without an oxygen supply … on his own.
We are visiting Thomas Meixner.
The Worlds cyclist from Central Germany.
Since 1998 he rides his bicycle. Whether Asia, Africa, America, Europe or Australia – he has travelled almost all continents by bike. Hardly surprising that “Else”, the bicycle of his first tours around the globe, is not in the cellar, but hangs in the living room.
It is 2:45am. I turn off the alarm clock, crawl out of my sleeping bag and get dressed. Just a quick coffee muesli mix and then I can go. I’m leaving Camp 2.
