Remember Donna D'Errico of Baywatch fame? Well, she's training to climb Mount Ararat to search for Noah's ark. And no, not for a reality show. (This comes just a month after D'Errico made the news with complaints that she was singled out for a TSA full body scan.) From AOL News:
"I've been studying this for years and know where the sightings have been," she said. "According to my research, the ark lays broken into at least two, but most likely three, pieces. I believe that one of those pieces is in the uppermost Ahora Gorge area, an extremely dangerous area to climb and explore."
But research alone isn't enough. D'Errico is training to get her stamina up enough to handle a climb nearly three miles high.
"It's not a technical climb," she said. "Many inexperienced climbers have done it, but you do need stamina and, obviously, a crew."
She is targeting August as the month she starts her ascent, and her trip is being sponsored by Bukla, a tour guide company in Turkey that's offering to provide transportation from Istanbul to Ararat and back, all equipment, mules, guide services and permits...
"I will be traveling with photography and video equipment and intend to have someone videotaping as I go through security at the airport this time," she said. "I also will be carrying a copy of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution with me, as well as a printout of TSA regulations in case they attempt to prevent the videotaping of me going through security. I'll be better prepared this time."
