    This is brilliant, I’ll definitely be purchasing a copy as soon as I get the money in order. A couple of friends and I will be participating in the Kilimanjaro climb sometime in September and we’re beyond excited. I’ve been non-stop reading about the mountain for the past couple of weeks now, and it only further grows my anticipation.

    The book definitely seems like an interesting read and most certainly one of the major reasons you visit the mountain, it’s truly a life-changing experience from my perspective. Now I’d best get back to upping my fitness level, I reckon’ that’s going to be the hardest part heh.
