Mount Toubkal - 2nd to 9th September

I've just booked onto this trip as a solo traveller, so thought I'd start this off for anyone else joining, or thinking of joining the climb.

This will be my second trip with Exodus and I'm sure it will be just as good as the first!

Looking forward to a new challenge and meeting any fellow trekkers.

Hi Jemma,

I booked this trip today as a solo traveler as well!  It’s my first time traveling with Exodus but I’m very excited to  what they have to offer.  I’ve done long distance treks in several other countries but this will be my first time in Africa.

Thanks for starting the thread and I look forward to meeting you and the rest of the group!

Hi, my friend and I have just signed up for this trek.  We've travelled with Exodus before and I've done other treks too.  Looking forward to it.

Just realised that gave you no indication of who we are.

Rosa (me) and Jill.

Great to see a few more people here. A good ice-breaker for when we meet in person!

I’ve done lots of walking, and have been at altitude once with no problems, but this will be my first proper mountain summit. I’m excited and nervous in equal measure!! Anyone doing anything in particular to train for this?

I’ve not booked the group flight as I found a more convenient option, but will be good to meet you all in Marrakech. 

I won’t be on the group flight either, coming from the US.  I live in a pretty mountainous area so I try to hike inclines as often as possible as quickly as possible to train, but any speed incline walking or stairs will definitely help!

Hey Everyone - hope you're all getting as excited as I am for the trip.  Only a couple of weeks until we are climbing together.  Has anyone seen a suggested packing list?  If not I'm going with my standard hiking gear.

 

Thanks,

-Jason

Hi Jason, 

Really looking forward to it now. I have half packed already to make sure I have everything I need!

There is a suggested kit list in the trip notes - try the link below. But yes, pretty much just standard hiking gear will be fine. The only thing I hadn't thought of that they suggest, is water purification tablets. I picked some up from Amazon, Biox Aqua I think they are called.

And swimmers if you want to take advantage of the pool in Marrakech!

Hi everyone,

I have just joined the community so I can meet my fellow travellers before getting to Morrocco. Sounds like a nice bunch already from your posts and Jemma - you are not on your own starting packing - my spare room has everyone out on the bed! See you all in a couple of weeks!

Nice to have another person on board. I’m actually starting to feel a little bit nervous about it now!

Hi,

Not sure if you’ll see this before you depart, but have a safe journey everyone and look forward to meeting you all tomorrow.

I arrive at around 10am and will probably enjoy the day relaxing by the pool!

See you soon, 

Jemma 

 

I will echo Jemma’s Safe travels wishes. I’m on my layover in Paris right now And arrive in Marrakesh around 12:15. I’ll probably take a quick nap then join by the pool!

Looking forward to our adventure everyone!
