Our climb was an amazing challenge. We hiked for three days to the Kibo Hut base camp, slept for just a few hours, and then began our climb at 11 p.m. We hiked through the night, under the full moon, reaching the summit around 7 a.m. The air was thin and our bodies were exhausted. People on the summit seemed to be delusional from altitude and lack of oxygen. As we walked the last hour on the summit ridge, the light of the full moon faded and the sun rose illuminating the African sky. Hiking above the clouds, on a dormant volcano, looking out on glaciers, we could see the world below us, just a sea of clouds. Mountains have an amazing healing power, which remind us just how small we are in the grander scheme of things. I am thankful to have spent time on this mountain and in this dynamic country.

I love this charity with all of my heart. They see a need in Latin America, address it, and go straight to the people that need them the most. No bureaucracy. No BS. Free medical care to give eyesight to people who, if left untreated, would go blind for the rest of their life. And they empower the locals to step up and take part in helping themselves and their community. It should always be that simple. On my Climb for Sight I raised $22,000 US, enough to provide over 100 surgeries free of charge to poor Guatemalan children going blind.

Overall the trip was tremendous and truly a trip of a lifetime and at 66 years old it was now or maybe never. Everything was first class and I could think of no area for improvement.
