Well, I fly to Tanzania on Saturday.

After a few days to recover from the flights and adjust to the new time zone, a 4 day climb of Mt Meru awaits.

Which is a warmup for a 8 day trek up Kilimanjaro.

Thankfully, I don't have to carry all my gear on these treks. smile

It won't be a tiny step by tiny step commentary, but I might occasionally throw some small status updates up on my website if anyone is interested.

On our summit attempt of Mt. Whitney on Sept. 11 there was a group of 7 hikers who let us tag along with them while it was still dark( we had gotten off the trail twice). One of those hikers who was really helpful runs a company that arranges trips up Kilimanjaro. Don't remember his name but if you are going with his company tell him the older couple from North Carolina says hi.
