So having decided yesterday that I was now wavering towards the Rongai, today I am still in the same place, except more so. Trouble is I had a really busy day (don’t you hate it when work gets in the way of the things you really want to do? :)). Had to get up at 5.45 to go to meetings in London – not good, and so little time to think about the mountain – except I didn’t stop thinking about it at all!
Got a recommendation also to advertise for some walking buddies on a couple of trekking forums (I hadn’t realised before today that such things existed, although I suppose that there are forums for everything these days). This, if I manage to get some fellow trekkists, would enable me to choose my own travel dates, and so that is a good thing, or it would be if I knew exactly when I wanted to go. Will have to put up some adverts – maybe I should say that I am a 21 year old Swedish blonde, and see how many responses I get. Err, on the other hand, maybe I REALLY shouldn’t do that at all, cancel that thought right away:). I will register for these forums tomorrow and see what comes back, if anything. How many more mad people are there like me? – I have no idea!
Will go and find some traffic cones or the like tomorrow too so I can do my fitness test at the weekend – not looking forward to that one at all – will maybe take some photos of that, and see how I put photos on this site – where do I start with that one? Oh, and I need to get my passport renewed too – you need a passport with six months to run to get into Tanzania, and mine expires early next year sometime. So so much to think about….
I am enjoying this hugely – maybe it doesn’t show – does it?? Well I am, I think it is the most exciting thing I have ever done, and I am still nowhere near it yet. Bring it on!!!
