The start of my epic climb to the top of Afirca’s highest mountian – Mt Kilimanjaro

The start of my epic climb to the top of Afirca’s highest mountian – Mt Kilimanjaro

Its been forever since I’ve blogged. Reason is my work load has been the biggest since the beginning of my business, was training 5+ times a week, being a dad and trying to find some sort of social life and sleeping when I could.

This past year has been an amazing journey with a fantastic group of people. Training, raising money and becoming great friends were the highlights just like these next few posts I will get up in the coming weeks.

I could write a ton more about the lead up to the climb. I could write pages on the climb itself…how it was the most difficult physical and mental and emotional thing I have put my mind, body and spirit too. I could write about the great weather we had, the amazing porters who carried our equipment, the darn good food we had on the mountain and the amazing team spirit my fellow climbers had the entire trip.

But I won’t – as I’m not the best writer but I think I can safely say I captured the essence of our hike in the photos taken – all 40000+ images!

It was a struggle to sift through them all (half coming from my GoPro I had attached to my chest) but I narrowed it down to hopefully tell a good story of what and how we did it!

This being the first blog of the series – here are some details…

DAY 1; Machame Route, 2800m (approx), 5hrs of hiking
