Its a busy weekend for me, making sure I have all my gear ready to climb Kilimanjaro.
There are twelve people going in all, including my friends Steve Forte, Adam Cogan, Paul Sheriff (and his wife Anne).
I've gotten awfully lazy as a traveller over the years, used to being able to buy whatever I'm missing when I get where I'm going... not so in Tanzania. So, unlike my usual behavior of packing a couple of hours before leaving, now I'm inventorying and test packing everything five days before I go. Weird.
I've decided not to bring a laptop along on the trip, but I do have my digital camera and picture dumper, so I'll be able to take lots of photos. I guess I'm going to have to bring a notebook and pen too, and write stuff down by hand along the way... at least the battery life of paper is good.
