MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) - Bob Biddix is an avid climber who tours the world taking professional picture of remote caves and scaling rugged mountains. Like many climbers, reaching the summit of Mount Everest has been a longtime goal.

"Last time, he went up to 20,300 feet," said his father, Ed Biddix. "This time, his goal was 26,000 feet."

It was only natural Bob Biddix, who works as a mechanic in Murfreesboro, would take his second trip to the mountain, just ahead of his 46th birthday. His parents say he trained for more than a year.
