It’s now just 5 days to go til my climb and I seriously need to start thinking about how I’m going to get all the gear I’ve accumulated into the backpack and onto the plane.


With ski jackets, hiking boots, walking bladders and a mountain of snacks and vitamins and tablets, I’m just not sure it’s all going to fit in.


See here the Packing List. Yes All 2 pages of it, that was provided to us by our wonderful organizers, Inspired Adventures. With a list like this, I cannot go wrong.


I feel as though I now have most things covered, but man is there a lot to check!


We also still have to do our last big shop for snacks, medication, pain relief, first aid kit supplies and any other cream, band aid or paste that is going to make our trip more comfortable.



Any suggestions on things that I should take for climbing a mountain?


I will be taking on my biggest Adventure yet, Climbing Kilimanjaro for Alzheimer’s Australia NSW!  I will Climb Kilimanjaro in honour of my Grandpa who passed away from Alzheimer’s in 2008. I was in Africa when I found out and I said at the time I would one day do this for him, in his memory! We are raising money for Alzheimer’s Australia NSW to raise awareness and the necessary funds for prevention of the disease that affects so many. Dementia is the third leading cause of death in Australia, after heart disease and stroke. We must prevent and find a cure as it’s not a normal part of aging, and does affect 100,000’s of Australians.

Help me reach my $10.000 target by donating to my online fundraising page:
