Thursday 17th January 2013, the day has arrived in the blink of an eye.
It seems Christmas has only just been and gone but I'm sat on the 13:15 from Leeds to Kings Cross at the start of my trip to the summit of Kilimanjaro.
An overnight flight Heathrow to Addis Ababa in Ethiopia and after a few hours the flight to Kilimanjaro airport in Tanzania.
The trek should start in earnest on Saturday morning and I hope to blog along the way, coverage permitting.
Meantime, here's the just giving link if you'd like to sponsor me :-D
