Todd Hi kc, your trip is around the time Lauren (from Globetrooper) finishes her 1000 miles trek acros the Gobi Desert. Maybe you'll have time to catch up with her in UB. You can see their progress here: http://gobi2011.com
Todd
Todd Hey Mei, Lauren and I plan to be in Berlin in Sept; if you're in the area we'd love to catch up for a beer/coffee/etc. I'll post your trip on our Facebook page too.

Todd We used to do this when we lived in Australia. We'd hire a bus and head to Thredbo in a big group at least once every winter. We'd usually go in a gour of 12 or 14; someone of the best times we had in oz :)
Lauren
Lauren Hi Sophia, I climbed Kilimanjaro a few years ago and I think it's a great starting point if you want to eventually head for Everest. I love big dreams! And I'd love to organise a trek with you on a different mountain. Denali has always called my name :) and anything in the French Alps would be really great too - and closer for you.
Todd
Todd Hey Sophia, consider teamkilimanjaro.com when you eventually go to Kili. We climbed with them a couple of years ago and they were very good. Kili really is an enjoyable climb; highly recommended.

sofia Lauren: Awesome! I think as well that Kili is a great starting point. I would love to climb in the French Alps. I would like to climb Denali as well and of course Mt. Blanc, so maybe we could organize a trek one day, I would like that :) Todd: Thank you for your advice!

Sophia I would love to climb Mt Everest. But I haven't climb any other mountain that is similar to this one, so I will definitely no be ready in 2013. Great idea though! Please check my group "Lets climb Kilimanjaro" I think that would be a great mountain to start climbing for me!
Sophia
Sophia If you can push it out another year or two, then I could consider if I will be ready be that time...

Todd Hey Sophia, which route do you plan to do? We wrote about them here: http://globetrooper.com/notes/mt-kilimanjaro-routes And here's the link to Sophia's Kili trip for others who may be interested: http://globetrooper.com/let-s-climb-kilimanjaro-2013

sofia I really want to do the Lemosho route, because it is considered the most beautiful route, and the traffic is less.

tachyon This is a go. I'm booked on the November 13th Departure of this trip: http://www.quarkexpeditions.com/antarctic-expeditions/antarctic-explorer/overview If anybody is interested in joining me, feel free to book and drop me a message and we can meetup! It all kind of happened in a rush. And ultimately I couldn't get the time off work to do the extended South Georgia itinerary. But hey, it's still a trip to Antarctica!
Todd
Todd Hey A, great to hear it's going ahead! I'll stick it on the home page. How's everything else going? We're currently living in India and Lauren is trekking the Gobi Desert. Moving to Thailand in a couple of weeks.

tachyon Things are good. Off to Bali next weekend for a week of diving and surfing. Thailand is awesome! I'll make it to India eventually. I have this plan in my head to do Nepal-Bhutan-India at some point. It'll probably be a few years off though. The Gobi is insane. I remember when I was working up there. Hope she doesn't run into any chaotic dust storms!

Todd Sounds like an interesting trip. The Globetrooper Team recently spent 3 months in South America, much of it exploring the backcountry. Most memorable parts were 1) a trek into the Peruvian jungle looking for lost civilizations (http://globetrooper.com/notes/adventure-turns-to-expedition-peru), and 2) the visit of the San Pedro prison (http://globetrooper.com/notes/how-to-get-into-san-pedro-prison-bolivia).
Cammy
Cammy I'm wanting to travel Augeust to September. I'd like to do Eastern Europe for sure. Do you have a plan for where you will be by August? I'll be starting in Italy and head NE from there. Holla.
Nathan
Nathan No i do not have a strict plan however it would be in eastern europe somewhere, going to start at the end of july from north east and work my way round :). What countries are you going to do?

Ian [EagerExistence] Looks great. Except being from AU, I don't have the same timeline as you (only got the Schengen Agreement for Visas).
Todd
Todd Yeah, what a great idea. I'm also from AU, but I have plenty of time, just not the budget for Europe. Great inspiration for something similar in Asia maybe. I've also thought about visiting the places with the most extreme weather in the world. The desserts of the middle east (or Ethiopia) for the heat, remote villages in Siberia for the cold, etc. Just a thought.
