Off To Climb Kilimanjaro this week…

KiligiraffeAs previously mentioned, I’m off to Africa this week to go on a little hiking expedition with some mates of mine.  We’re climbing Mt. Meru, Mt. Kilimanjaro and then going on Safari all across Tanzania.

I’ll be gone for 17 days or so and flying home just in time to drop my bags, kiss the wifey and kids and fly to San Francisco (8 hours later) to get to the RSA show for the UTM smackdown panel I’m on.  If you’re at RSA and see a tatooed, newly-bearded, scruffy and frostbitten guy with a conference badge and an attitude to match, chances are it’s me.  Or Rothman.  He’s prettier than I, or so I hear.

If the altitude, stomach pathogens, or Mosquitoes don’t kill me, the amount of email and work when I return certainly will.

In case Rothman, Shimmy, Stiennon, Ptacek, McKeay or Vet decide to take this opportunity to get cute and sneak in some post that I would otherwise respond to, I hear there is GSM/GPRS service all the way to the top of the mountain.  Be warned. :)

Hold down the fort, boys.  I shall return!

    Yeah but Rothman doesn't have the Kiwi accent when he gets drunk…
