Kilimanjaro journal entry: 
June 2, 1993

“We left the comfort of the Kibo Hotel this morning, along with our guide, assistant guide and several porters.  Many are needed to carry firewood, food, water, pots & pans, and many pounds of gear.  I am so lucky to be doing this climb with my dad.  It has been his dream for many years to climb Kilimanjaro, and I guess I just love spending time with him.  Who knows, I may get hooked.  Haven’t been home from my travels in over a year, so it is wonderful to see him and spend this time together.”
