Pre-Departure Poem & More

Twas the night before Kili, when all through the house,
Not a Barber was packing, not even a mouse.
The suitcases were laid open upstairs with care,
In hopes that Emily & Casey would finally decide what to wear.

This post marks the official revival of my travel blog! I am doubtful that I will have wi-fi on the mountain as Google’s Project Loon does not currently service Tanzania–YET. The hope is that we will have internet access after the climb is over and I will blog about the remainder of the adventure.

Tune in to hear about Paul’s physical performance on the mountain, how bad we all smelled after 8 days of no showering, what Casey wore, and how well all of Maria’s marathons prepared her to run from lions and leopards.

The journey there is looking like it may be more exhausting than the hike itself with stops in Cairo, Dubai, AND Nairobi before reaching our final destination a day later. We are considering buying name tags that say “Hello, I’m on points” so that other travellers in our vicinity understand why we randomly burst out into tears and look like the Grudge.

Until next time, Merry Christmas!

  1. Can’t wait to hear all about it Em! Be safe and have a fabulous time! Want pics of Casey’s outfits, you doing burpees on top of the mountain, your dad leaving all of you in the dust and your mom ascending “one more time” after you finish just because, you know, she can! Cheers!

  2. Looking forward to hearing about all this fun stuff. I am sewing like a fiend with a finger I tried to amputate with a roll cutter 😯.

    Best of luck to all . Happy hiking……..!
