Kissing Kilimanjaro: Leaving it All on Top of Africa

Kissing Kilimanjaro: Leaving it All on Top of Africa

Mount Kilimanjaro is sometimes called the “everyman’s Everest” because it’s possible for even a novice to reach the summit.  That’s how Daniel Dorr got started; a novice who was trying to impress a beautiful brunette with dreams of adventure.  Six months later he was laying on the cold gravel trail in Africa at 18,000 feet, panting and hacking in the darkness suffering from Acute Mountain Sickness.  But it didn’t end there.

Kissing Kilimanjaro” is a detailed and sometimes humorous account of a regular guy who goes from the comforts of home to the rigors of a 19,340 foot mountain.  Join Dorr as he fondles expensive gear, travels local-style across East Africa, confronts a Maasai warrior, trudges up the mountain and vomits on the top of the African continent.

Follow him through the minor inconveniences and major self-discoveries that come with mountaineering.  It’s the story of an ordinary man trying to do something extraordinary and all the rewards—both large and small—of reaching for personal fulfillment through adventure travel, physical challenge, and the ability to leave it all on the mountain.
