When My Truck Friend Saved My Valuable Possessions

When We choose Professional Moving Service

With pristine clarity, I still remember the day I got glad news of promotion accompanied by an astonishing one. Moving! Yes, I had to report in my new office in Italy after a month. I wasn’t able to decide whether to celebrate this news with my family and friends over sushi or cry my lungs out in my cabin’s washroom.

Even the perks of promotion were not making me happy as I was not only devastated leaving my country family, friends, relatives, and colleagues but was also tensed about packing my whole life in a box and moving to a new country.

I had no idea where to start from as there was so much to pack. This is when my best friend Laura became my guardian angel and suggested me to hire service of professional cheap long distance movers in PA who are not only reputed but also in the business for a long time.

I called them up and asked them to visit my place to have a look at my stuff which they had to pack and move. Ben and ted, my moving companions were extremely friendly and put my jittery nerves at ease by relaxing me and assuring me that my stuff is in safe hands.

Before packing, they first made an inventory list so that I don’t have to worry about figuring out whether everything arrived at my new home in Italy or not.

Then they asked me what things I don’t really need and downsized the stuff for me. They help me get rid of clothes I haven’t worn in the last year, kitchen appliances like Popcorn making a machine I never touched, and books I was not going to read again.

Then they wrapped my fragile items in bubble wrap paper and also labeled that box by putting a sticker of fragile on it along with my name.

They packed my whole stuff within a week along with heavy furniture that I intended to take along. The rest we donated and sold online. They took my address of Italy, delivered, unpacked and arranged stuff there a week before my arrival. Who does that? Like seriously! Only long distance relocation services in PA that I hired. They turned my nightmare into a living dream by making moving easy for me.

The beautiful mountains are the real challenge to accomplish. It requires courage to accomplish the climb. There are many factors responsible to make the mountains challenging and fatal. The high ratio of the ascent to the death makes the mountain more deadly which is dependent on some of the factors listed as follows:

Altitude Sickness

Altitude Sickness is a great threat in the high Himalayas. As the altitude increases, the atmospheric pressure decreases which make the climbers uncomfortable. This can affect different aspects of the health of the climbers. The less concentration of the oxygen in the environment will make the climbers difficult to take breathe.

The altitude above 8,000 meters is called Death Zone. Above 8,000 meters the atmospheric conditions are beyond the adaptive capacity of the climbers. Their body suffers from different abnormalities such as dizziness, nausea, headache, and shortness of breath. Inabilities to adapt in such an adverse condition are the cause of many deaths in the mountains.

Weather

The weather in the mountains is never stable. The extreme cold and the wind sometimes do not allow the climbers to move forward. The atmospheric temperature drops by 0.65°C per 100 meters of height gained. Thus, as climbers reach 8,000 meters the temperature will be 57°C less than that at sea level. The exposure to extreme cold temperature can lead to frostbite and also deaths.

Falls

Falls is a major life risk in the mountains. The risk of the fall exists in all steps: during the climb, on high ridges, and even after the summit.

Avalanches

Avalanches are obviously the big name in the list. When the massive mass of the ice slides down from the top, the climbers get no time to run away from the disaster. Even simple natural triggers can initiate the avalanche. For example; the fresh snow setting on the old snow. When the avalanche starts, it gains a really high speed that if the climber gets caught, he/she is buried alive or moved down to thousands of feet.

Crevasses

A crevasse can be deep and wide enough to invite death. A crevasse is found near the new snow bridge which is made up of snow in a recent previous year. A crevasse may not be distinguished from the surface but once a climber drops down to the bottom of the crevasse, there is almost zero chance to come out.

Thus, next time when you are going for an adventure to climb the mountain, study the fatality rate of the mountain so that you can have a general idea of the level of danger you will be facing. Make sure you make a proper study of the climate during your time of visit and most important partner up with someone who takes your health as a priority element. Nepal Sanctuary Trek will be more than happy to provide you with all the necessary information, guidance and support to make your adventure come true.

  2. Mount K2 (29 % fatality rate)
  3. Nanga Parbat (22% fatality rate)
  4. Kanchenjunga (20%fatality rate)
  5. The Eiger (18% fatality rate)
  6. Dhaulagiri (16% fatality rate)
  7. Manaslu (9.9 % fatality rate)
  8. Mount Everest (6% fatality rate)
