Kilimanjaro summit video

Postby David1986 » Tue Apr 03, 2012 11:10 pm

Hey,

Just registered here, thought i'd share a recent video of my trip up Kilimanjaro incase any of you were interested. It's a bit shakey in places but theres a good shot of Sunrise:

If anyone is going up Kili anytime soon and wants to know any details just ask in here.

Fun video and great sunrise. Not many would go Tenacious D straight into Coldplay for a Kili climb soundtrack, your an intriguing fellow.

Great video, good memories, and the best of the video is the soundtrack.
I am a big fan of Jack Black hehehe, great choice!

haha thanks guys for the compliments on the soundtrack and the vid. I just wished the video footage I had got was better, problem was I stupidly only took one battery for my camera and I saved most of the battery life for photos, just taking the odd video every now and then.

I got loads of photos and the photos I got were brilliant compared to the video so I can't compain.

But a bit of advice for anyone going on a long trek is to take a battery pack to charge your stuff from, you'll be glad you did!

When were you up there? That's still the old summit sign which has been replaced.

I was up just last September/October, I didn't even realise they had changed the summit sign, I just had a look on google at the new one. Looks interesting.

We were up there on Christmas day last year. I've seen that goofy old wooden sign in so many pictures, imagine my surprise. The new ones are metal and sterile. I'd post a pic but my flash broke and we had made it up long before sunrise so we were'nt going to hang around. I have no summit photos which is a bit sad.
