Three Weeks To Go

It's just 21 days to go now until I start my attempt to climb Kilimanjaro.  Last weekend I did a 38 mile training session and had great fun bivvying out in the woods with Colin, who is doing the climb with me. I've been trying to do regular walks most days but it's been quite hard to fit them in.

I've managed to get most of my kit sorted but I'm still missing one or two bits including the vitally important warm gloves.  There don't seem to be many winter gloves in the shops this time of year! There's a massive list of kit to take including a long list of medical supplies sent by the doctor that will be joining us!

If anyone is interested in following my position on the mountain, I'm hoping to post updates on my Challenge Tracker map (signal permitting).

Thanks again for everyone who has sponsored me.  All of the money raised will go to
the two amazing charities I'm supporting, who do such great work helping people at a time of desperate need.  So far you've helped me to raise nearly £5,500, which is an amazing amount so thank you all very much. If you haven't yet sponsored me and would like to there is a link at the top of this page.
