To the Roof of Africa!

I didn't have a whole heck of a lot of time to train for my upcoming Kilimanjaro trek - just under 5 weeks. Here are some photos of those who helped and motivated me through it. Since elation isn't photographic-able, which has been my biggest motivating factor, you'll just have to mentally add a photo of me beaming....yup, just like that. :) Wish me luck! My summit push will begin in the early morning hours of Tuesday, June 8th.

I'll close with words from a really wise Irishman, "It's not a hill, it's a mountain, as you start out the climb, listen for me, I'll be shouting - we're gonna make it all the way to the light...but you know I'll go crazy if I don't go crazy tonight." (I just wish I could remember that Irish dude's name.)

Yay!!!!! June 8, it's on the calendar, I'll be thinking of you and playing music . . . if I can find anything by said Irishman.

(Also, Malisa's preggers. Nice!)

Have fun, can't wait to hear all about it and plan a slideshow night in the man cave. We'll be thinking of you!
