Rob Hill Getting ready Kilimanjaro

,Tanzania 2014 IBD Adventure, Getting ready for the next IBD Adventure, It has been a few years since I have had to train hard for a climb, in the past it was about maintaining a constant and ramping up a few months out from the next big Mountain.

I still get out on a yearly IBD Adventure and stay pretty active with my young family but reality is that the same level of fitness is not required to live my life now, compared to when I was climbing something big once a year. Some might argue that Kilimanjaro isn’t that hard and a high level of fitness isn’t required but this is relative to a standard of fitness. I train and I ask that everyone joining me on a trek like Kilimanjaro, come in at the highest level of fitness they can achieve, why you ask, so they can enjoy themselves.

    This is a very OLD circulated piece from a group on a rampage. The PEOPLE of Canada have VOTED ( most recently in Ontario) and support the candidates favoring the Canadian system and opposing the candidates spewing your position for change. It is now clear to me that you get talking points apparently daily from your group of Reed, Geo. Mason folks etc. who tell you what to write and feed you the garbage that you use. No thinking, no research just distribute the propaganda. I have lawyer friends in Toronto with lots of money who praise Canadian health care system and use it. They could afford to go to U.S. for care and PAY but are satisfied with their system. They are satisfied to pay taxes so that all can have health care and their is no private system so the rich can’t legally pay for different care. Same care for all. I have a friend in Manchester, England. Diagnosed (by MRI) with need for non emergency arthroscopic knee surgery on Monday and had the surgery on Thursday. Can’t get it that quickly in most of U. S. and forget it if you have no insurance and modest income. PLEASE don’t expose your students to this junk. Save it for zealot cocktail parties.
