March 18, 2013

I feel like I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro all over again these past two years while I was writing my novel A TABLE ON KILIMANJARO. The characters follow the same route as I did - the Machame Trail. Our group was very fortunate in the weather we experienced on the mountain. I needed to make my novel more exciting so added in some creative weather elements. I have since heard of other climbers experiencing 60-70 mph wind gusts on summit day. If you are thinking about climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and wondering what it could be like, check out my novel on Amazon. It's available in electronic and print versions.

  2. Climbing simply put is the sport of manual ascent and has now taken the form of a fully fledged sport. But, climbing should not be taken lightly. It is an advanced skill and training is a must to practice and participate in this sport.

    1. Training is vital to success on reaching the summit of any mountain much less Mt. Kilimanjaro. Romanticizing the mountain has done a great disservice to many

this is a former house plant that I tired of, I didn't want to throw it out, so I dug a hole for it in the dog yard. It's thriving despite me.
