Wilfred Moshi, Moonhouse Explorer to the summit of Kilimanjaro sends his the story of the expedition. The expedition earned Wilfred a place in the Moonhouse Expedition Hall of fame for meeting the first of the objectives in the Summits Challenge of briging the house to the highest summits of each of the seven contients.

Hello all,

Hope you are well. I am fine.

I felt down when I couldn’t take Moonhouse up Kili sometimes early this year. But my down feelings were relieved when I did receive it 27th Jun 2013 from Christer Abrahamsson.

The expedition didn’t start until 1st Jul 2013. Moonhouse Mt. Kilimanjaro Expedition was set through Machame route (Whiskey route). I was so curious and so was everyone in the expedition due to the fact that Mt. Kilimanjaro is big mountain thus create its own weather condition. It took 6 days to go up and down Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Luck us, we had fabulous days that carry and with minimal technical we managed to unfold and place moonhouse in couple places for sharing experience with other hikers. On the “D Day” weather didn’t cooperate very well. While other expedition members experienced altitude sickness Moonhouse survived well but not through very strong wind that was blowing almost 50Km/h. At the summit we had to come up with improvisation so that it would stay still or not blown off to the crater rim.

Summited and descent safely to the Mweka gate.

Future: Planning to take Moonhouse to road trip around Tanzania, Moonhouse 2.27 may go to some expedition hikes with me….Elbrus, Denali, Aconcagua, go down into Kilimanjaro crater or into ashpit

Congratulations Wilfred on your successful expedition and fair winds for your coming adventures and look forward to reports from future expeditions.
