Sorry it's been a while

Currently lying in a tent, contemplating another day's walking!!

The signal has been really intermittent, so don't know when I'll be able to blog next.

Everyone is doing well, the 8 hour (mostly uphill) walk yesterday was a killer, but they're really looking after us with the food & we're getting plenty of rest.

2 days until summit day. Today is all about practicing on the skree slopes of Mawenzi in preparation for the terrain around the summit.

Yours in successful su..... Oh hang on, 1 more thing......

......long drops (holes in the floor used as toilets) are the worst thing in the world!!!!!!!

Yours in successful summiting.
