I have dedicated this page as an open forum for Comments and Questions about Flying Kites and my upcoming trek.
We are so excited to meet you!
I am very excited to meet everyone! I can’t believe I leave in a week!
Steve, your blog is great and the pictures are awesome! Happy new year. Wanted you to know I was thinking about you. Your sis.
Thanks do much. I’m glad you are enjoying the blog. Happy New Year to you guys.
Good luck to you and the group as you begin your trek to the roof of Africa! Your blog is amazing and love the updates. We are all cheering you on. Stay safe and good luck….From Ellens Mom
Enjoying your blog so much. Wishing you and your group a safe return down the mountain and home. Susan and Woody
Hi Steve – found your blog via the Nextdoor website, what a small world. I climbed Kili September 2012 and am currently writing a book about it, and it looks like we live in the same neighborhood:-)
It is a small world. Congratulations on your climb and good luck with your book! Are you writing about anything specific as it relates to your climb? This was my first blog, so it’s a little rough, but I actually wrote it and published it on my iPhone all the way up to the final camp. I was surprised to get cell phone service that high up on the mountain.
I also have another blog, which looks nicer. I went back to Africa in January to begin writing a cookbook. The blog is about that trip as well as an update on the cookbook. Here is a link to the blog. http://cookingforthechildren.wordpress.com
And if there is anything I can do for you regarding your book, let me know. Our organization takes a group up once a year.
Best regards and I hope to run into you in the neighborhood.
I saw that you wrote your blog pretty much during your climb, which I find amazing. I don’t know that I could have done that. I took some notes on paper, but mostly wrote everything afterwards. Although some of it right afterwards, while the thoughts were still fresh. You cannot hold on to an experience like that for long and remember how it really was, I think.
My book is really just a first-person account of my climb (my son also came with me). Trying to keep it humorous and still convey all that was great about it. I’ve woven bits and pieces of history as well as advice and tips into it as it fits with the flow. No help needed really, although once it’s written and published I could use some help promoting it:-) Will let you know when that happens.
Good luck with your charity, sounds like a great project. I help a baseball team in a South African township by raising funds and sending equipment etc, so can relate to some of what you do.
