Kilimanjaro Trek

This is the single most difficult thing I have ever done:

  • 20 degrees
  • 20 mph wind
  • 7 days living between 13,000-15,000 feet!
  • Not enough air to keep a fly alive at the top!
  • The final accent day with 17 hours of straight hiking from 150 ft high glaciers to the rain forest floor!
  • Thought of 10 reasons why I would never make it…but miraculously prevail!

Should have video in 5 weeks when I return from Everest base camp!
