Post by: Karen on Feb 13 2008, 09:41
Hello.  I live in Kansas City, Missouri and I am planning on the Machame route to summit Kilimanjaro mid July.  I'm looking for a partner or to start a group or even join a group.  Please let me know if you are interested.

Hi Karen. My name is Doug and I am also trying to find someone to make that climb with, but have been unsuccessful. My original time frame was around labor day of this year for the Machame route, but I would not be opposed to working around the dates. If you still need a partner, please let me know asap. thanks.

Hi Doug,

So glad to hear from you.  I have purchased my air fare so my dates are set but I am still interested in a partner.  Here is my itenarry:

July 9- Arrive in Tanzania
July 10 - Begin safari
July 13 - Return from safari
July 14 - Begin climb
July 21 - Return from climb and depart Tanzania in the late evening.

Are you interested in the safari at all?  Let me know if these dates work for you.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Karen

Karen,

Those dates would work for me. What type of safari are you going on? How much did you spend on your airfare? What is the best way to get a visa? Also, I have lots of gear, but is there anything out of the ordinary that you heard might be useful? If you want to reach me more regularly my email is dhinckley@lxp.com.

Thanks Karen, I look forward to speaking with you further!

Hi Karen,
I recently moved to the Kansas City area and I am in the process of planning to do Kili around July of 09 or maybe 10.  I am interested of starting a club or just to talk in more detail about climbing.  Hope to talk with you soon

Hi Kimmie,

I would love to chat about Kilimanjaro.  My plans are set for this summer and I was fortunate enough to have a couple of people to chat with to help me get my trip set up. 

If it is easier you can email me at kburec@yahoo.com

Look forward to hearing from you.

Karen

Hi Guys,

I am planning to summit Kilimanjaro between 15th Sep 2008 till 15th Dec 2008. As you guys have recently visited Kili, need your advice to plan it. Till now i am going solo, hope to find a partner so that cost can be shared. I also plan to do the safari, but if you go alone, it is very expensive.

Pls help.
