Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro


Uhuru Peak, the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro

In 2002 my wife and I went to Africa to see the wildlife and attempt to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. Unfortunately, hypothermia and Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) hit me hard and by 18,000′ (5,400m) I had to turn back.

Tanzania was amazing and touched us so much we co-founded Kilimanjaro Adventures to share the experience with others.

In Jan. 2005 I returned to Kilimanjaro and this time I made it to the top and back again.  The whole experience was so life changing that I wrote a book about the experience and got it published by the Mountaineer Books.  Now I give motivational presentations and share the beauty of Tanzania with companies and community organizations.
