12 Days of Kili – Day 12: Mweka Gate/ Moshi

Day 12 falls on January 8, 2014
Mweka Gate: 5,500-ft/1,676-m • 4-5 hours
Moshi: 3,000-ft/914-m • 30 minute drive

Last day on the mountain…and just a few hours more until a hot shower. I’ve been living this journey in two dimensions – living it here on the blog, providing a day by day account of what lies ahead and yet knowing that the real challenge lies ahead when I depart on Christmas Day. As I write this – the conclusion of the 12 Days of Kili – it is just one week until I depart on this epic journey. The time crunch is on and between client demands, corporate year end and, more importantly, special time with loved ones, I find it is difficult to find the “right” balance.  To pursue a venture of this sort is admittedly very self-indulgent and could not be pursued without the full support of those closest.  It is very special that I have this opportunity and know I am fortunate to have my guy, Jim, and our two huskies, Sakku and Atii, manning “base camp” at home.

This will be our last sight as we exit Kilimanjaro National Park……

I will post again just prior to my departure… and appreciate your patience as I prepare and pack for the trip.
