I was one of a party of 5 who trekked Kili via the Machame/Mweka route. Bruce Allen's summit log (he was in our group) follows and pretty well sums it up but I just wanted to add a few things of my own. I was able to reach Uhuru Peak due to not only my own inner strength but the support and help of my 4 other traveling companions (3 whom I had never met before) and of course the guides. I feel so lucky to have had these people (Leigh,Bruce,Danny,Joe)with me-we all helped each other in different ways and developed a friendship beyond description. Climbing Mt. Kili is indeed a "mind" game and one must be in top physical and mental condition. Indeed, pole, pole is the trick too! YES, I WOULD do it again!! Hey, Bruce: thanks for bringing your water purifier!!
