Mt Kili Jan 11 anyone going?

Hey guys,

Anyone off to Mount Kilimanjaro in Jan 2011????  Bit early I know, but would be really great to get to know some of the group before we head off. It would also be great to chat with anyone that has maybe just come back and would like to share their experience.


Hi Vicky I'm going on Jan 12th but doing the Lemosho route. How's the training going? I've been trying to hike every wkend but getting nervous now! Lorna x


Hey Lorna, Well training is not going all that well. I broke my foot back in April and am still undergoing physio so not done an awful lot of walking. I am getting very nervous about it too but excited. Where have you been hiking? Any recommendations in the UK? I did do a small walk in Buxton a few months ago and desperately need to do more :-).
Would be great to hear how your trip went when you get back x

Hi Vicky, im going to Kilimanjaro 30 Jan Rongai route with my friend Paula. It's the first time we have done anything like this so we are really excited. We did mount Snowdon a couple of weeks ago, it was a great experience for us. We walk with our dogs every other night for 2 hours and at weekends we usually go for 3/4 hours.

Have you done anything like this before???

Angela :0) x


Hi Angela,
I have never done anything like this before but Iam going with my toehr half and a couple of his mates who did Everest Base camp a few years ago. I am excited too, not really worried yet but not done much training. We went for a walk on Saturday, only about 15 miles but felt really good. There is not much specific training you can really do in this country I think so it is just a case of getting fit, building calf muscles and stamina and making sure you are mentally fit for it. We leave on 28th Jan I think so you will be just behind us :-) x
