That is so awesome, thank you for sharing.

I did kili a few years ago, I flew there and bussed to the hotel. While I was in the bus heading to the hotel from Kili international I saw a guy on his bicycle busy going for it, clearly he was doing a cross country bike ride with all that gear, I remember looking out the window thinking that I wanted to be that guy and not here sitting in the bus, I wanted to experience life on the ground.. so when I got home I started plans and 2 years later I rode my motorbike back there. I didn't climb again but the experience of riding there was the adventure.

Well done for that summit, that weather looked harsh. You have to dig really deep at that altitude.

Hi Fuzzy,
In hindsight, I should have done a bike trip and left the climbing to the crazy people  :deal:

As they say, it is all about the journey  :thumleft:

Do the bike trip next year  :deal:  :thumleft:  ;)

Come over to the US, stay a few days, then take a ride for a few weeks... so much to see!  :ricky:
