This time Jordan makes the news from the Mt. Everest base camp in Tibet. Check out the live interview with Meredith Vieira.
Everybody wants their young teenager to have a hobby, something to keep him out of trouble and off the couch, something healthy and outdoorsy. You know, like climbing Mount Everest.
“This is something I’ve been looking at ever since I was a little kid,” 13-year-old Jordan Romero reported to TODAY’s Meredith Vieira via Skype from inside a tent pitched 20,000 feet up the north face of the world’s highest mountain.
Jordan didn’t need a note from his mom and dad to be there. In fact, with him was his father, Paul Romero, and Paul’s girlfriend, Karen Lundgren, as well as an unusual good-luck charm from a young friend.
Good luck Jordan!
