My friend Nelly has been wanting to climb Mount Kinabalu for ages. And we decided that we’ll do it this year. I probably should have done some research beforehand, but word was that even newbs can make this climb with little preparation.
Then I read this blog post and thought “Oh man, this is totally going to be me. Especially that part about crying on a rock about poor life choices.”
It’s still some time away, but after much googling I’ve decided that I’m going to do a bit more than ‘little preparation’. I see Jacob’s Ladder, a crap-tonne of glucosamine supplements and core and joint strengthening exercises in my future.
And I figure I’ll get the lamenting about poor life choices thing out of the way now just to save some time: Bugger, what have I gotten myself into.
