Gard having tea at Marangu hotelThere were only 4 of us going on this trip and none of us had been hiking in high altitude before. I (Gard) am currently 33 years old and live in Stavanger in Norway. When I'm not of to climb high mountains I can normally be seen playing squash to try to stay in shape or at the movies in Stavanger trying to relax. Before this trip I did quite a lot walking in the Stavanger area but we will get back to that in the "Get in shape before you go" chapter. When I'm not on vacations I work for PRIDE ASA.

Matt and GayleAvril in the garden at Marangu hotelI hooked up with the other trekkers through my wife Nikki. Gayle and Avril are sisters and Gayle went to school with Nikki when they grew up in South Africa. Both Gayle and Avril moved from South Africa to New Zealand in their teens but in the last few years they have been living and working in London. Gayle has made her living in the IT business and Avril is a nurse. The last person in the group is Matt. He is Gayle's boyfriend and he is from the UK.
