Training for Mount Kilimanjaro: March Update

March went by in a blur! I got to meet one of my fellow climbers, Connie (I’d add a photo here, but I totally forgot to take one!) she’s so lovely and we’ve decided to do some climbs together starting in May.

I booked my flights and now it’s becoming a lot more real! I’ll arrive a few days before to acclimatize and I’m going to try and do a Serengeti safari and maybe some gemstone shopping, Tanzanites we’re discovered in Tanzania, so there should be lots of opportunities to pick some up!

I’ve made some sterling silver earrings and necklace in the shape of a mountain which are now available on my website. All proceeds go to my fundraiser, I’m so so close to my goal of raising $10,000 now!

There are still quite a few bits and pieces that I need to buy, the main things are a duffel bag and the backpack and then some odds and ends. April will bring a few hikes, some jump rope exercises oh and a visit to the doctor to be prescribed Diamox for altitude sickness and to see which vaccines I need.

And I got to try out some of my cold weather head gear (which I'm happy to say kept the wind and cold out!) - see below!
