"I boiled water to survive and waited out a 150-mile-<an- hour monsoon wind," the wind- bumed six-footer said from a wheelchair after being reunited with his wife. "The temperature was 50 degrees below zero at Camp No. 4," he said. The camp was located at the 24,600-foot level of the peak in central Nepal.
