    Thanks for the tips. I have ben thinking about tackling Kilimanjaro for some time and your blog has helped make my mind up.
    I was always worried about taking the right gear on Kilimanjaro trips but thanks to your checklist I should be able to get kitted out and ready to rock. I am sure that it is going to be tough but it is something I just feel that I have got to try while I still can, and being properly equipped will give me a lot more confidence that I can reach the top
