Thanks for linking up my post on your blog. I think that it is interesting how many people take Kilimanjaro so lightly. It is still a very high mountain and no matter how easy everyone says it is, everyone is different and their bodies react in different ways. I am glad that she is ok and will recover.

Hi Jason,

Thanks for giving me the heads up on this story. Yes, it is surprising how many people take it lightly - seems people don't realize that altitude is altitude, regardless of the technical challenges involved. I, too, am glad she is OK an will recover well - hopefully her story can be a subtle reminder to future climbers about the dangers of altitude!

Thanks again, and keep up the great blogging!


Mount Everest

I am sure Martina will be back to give it another shot one day. Martina has had treatment for Cancer recently, would that of been a disadvantage to her combined with the altitude?

A lot of adventurous souls like to feel the freedom of coming and going as they please. You can use myDateTrackerAlert, and if you don’t check in by the time that you determined, an alert which shows the person you are with if any, the time, and the location of your adventure will be texted or emailed to your emergency contact(s). A demo is available at datetrackeralert.com. The Android and Blackberry DTA App is already in the works and will be available soon.
