Charity Challenge 2009?

Well it is coming up to the end of the year and I am thinking of what I can do for my next upcoming charity challenge. Unfortutely it can’t be too active, well by that I mean I can’t do any repetitive knee movements (well not for the next 6 months). I injured my knee […]

The Amani Children’s New Playground

Following on from my posts about climbing Kilimanjaro for charity I was really pleased to recently get an email from Valerie the director of the Amani Childrens Home. Just a little over a year ago a group of 7 of my friends and I succesfully summited Mount Kilimanjaro by the Machame route raising just over […]

Back from Kilimanjaro, in Moshi

I tried so hard to lye in bed as was so knackered from the climb but due to the habit of getting gup at 0630 I was wide awake. I went for breakfast and most of the others had the same problem and were there too. We got taxis into town and were jumped on […]

Climbing Kilimanjaro Day 6

Ok now i am feeling incredibly so knackered! It’s 4am and we have a 7-8 hour trek to the summit, it’s so cold here at Barafu camp 4600m. I am so glad for my brother Kyle lending me his thermals. It is pitch black and we will be walking like this for 1.5 hours. Thanks […]

Climbing Kilimanjaro Day 5

Well after a reasonably relaxed trek up to Barafu Camp the clouds are scatted being able to see Africa as well as its sky. We will be ascending either around midnight this evening or 0400 tomorrow morning. Either way I’m not going to get any sleep. Everyone else is asleep in the tents i just […]

Climbing Kilimanjaro Day 4

Today was our first lye in, we didn’t need to get up until 0700. After the world’s worst breakfast consisting of cornflakes with hot water and milk powder we set off to Karango. It’s only taken about 5 hours to get here. Lots of ups and downs but now we are at the top of […]

Climbing Kilimanjaro Day 3

Ok I am so dehydrated, my mouth feels as dry as a nuns crack athletes foot. The atmosphere is like a sponge sucking me dry. It’s 0630 again, and the tent is completely frozen. This is going to be a cold day. Yet again I’m scared for my head. It’s never come this close to […]

Climbing Kilimanjaro Day 2

Wow I slept almost a full 9 hours, unlike everyone else. It’s so worth buying a proper expedition down bag.. thank you Mum for my awesome Marmot bag xxx Up at 0630 our cook brings mugs of Milo to our tents. (Milo is like a watery malt hot chocolate drink.) I manage to get one […]

Climbing Kilimanjaro Day 1

First day climbing the mountain, we’ve cheated considerably. Our hotel was at 800m AMSL (Above mean sea level), the gate we drove to was 1800m. So actually we were a third of the way up the mountain before we had even started. However in fairness this would have been an easy climb, one which would […]

Back from Africa

Well this is going to be a short post to quickly say thank you to everyone who has sponsored us to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for the Amani Children’s Home family reunification programme and playground. I have uploaded photos to my travel gallery of our trip, including some which should probably be censored
