Hi All, Not sure how many are booked on this trip so far but it would be good to hear from you before we
set off. Any tips about sleeping bags and mats would be gratefully received and if any of you are interested
in forming a card school to help keep us entertained in the evenings that would be excellent - a friend of
mine who did the same climb earlier this year recommended it!
I think this is the trip I've just booked although the flight leaves the UK on 2nd? I'm a little excited and very scared as it's now dawning on me what I've done! Apparently I'm the 5th person to book, there are already 2 other solos and a couple booked. At least I'll have a legitimate excuse for eating all the Christmas chocolate! Have you done anything like this before?
Yes, it's the same trip I booked my own flights to avoid an over-nighter! Don't be scared I am sure we will all look after you. Feel free to bring as much chocolate as you want, I for one will help you out with that if you can't manage it all!
I am another of the solos so we have one further solo and a couple so far by the sound of it.
I have done a few climbs in NZ, Grand Canyon and plenty of skiing over the years though not at 19000 feet! How was Machu Picchu?
hello vicki & john, it is the first Exodus trip for me but I have heard good things about this route. I am off to see some friends who did the same trip 12 months ago and will see if I can pick their brains for useful tips.I am booked on the flight on 2 January.
Hi Nick, good to hear from you. Any tips gratefully received! I paid the balance for the trip today which means it'll soon be here and at the moment there are still just the 6 of us. Just over 8 weeks to go!
Does anyone have any thoughts on visas? I was going to leave it until I got there. I didn't have any problems getting one on arrival in Kenya a couple of years ago, but that was Kenya and not Tanzania! John, in response to your earlier question, as I don't have a sleeping mat I've decided to hire one.
I dropped my passport in to the embassy with a special delivery sae and they sent it back 3 days later, not sure how long it takes at the airport.
Yes I hired bag/mat/jacket/poles thinking it would leave more room in the suitcase for chocolate!
A pal of mine did the same route earlier this year and his three top tips were diamox, playing cards and a pee bottle for the nights! Bliss.
sorry to hear about the injury. 4 weeks to settle...
I am going to leave the visa until we arrive. I don't fancy sending my passport off at this time - could get delayed.
do we know how many are on our trip?
