Everybody has a bucket list of destinations they’d like to visit, mountains they’d like the climb, or landmarks they’d like to see. I’m no different. For me, getting to Africa to climb Kilimanjaro and then spending some time on safari, was always pretty high on my list. I’m not entirely sure why, but it might have something to do with my watching Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom as a child, in the flatlands of Illinois. The world was a little bigger as an eight year old, so the idea of standing on the top of Kilimanjaro, seeing the wildebeest migration, a big cat on the prowl, or a hippo in her element was so far out of reach that I couldn’t even dream of it.
The world is a lot smaller now. It’s impossible to know if watching Jim Fowler had any impact on how my career unfolded, but as I type this blog post, I can’t help but get excited to lead our Feb. 19th Kili Climb & Safari. We’ve got a few spots open on so if you’ve got some flexibility in your schedule, why not join me in Africa!
Deadline to sign up is just before Christmas, Friday, December 22nd.
