Hello all. Just finished treking mt Elgon with Jeff from Australia. It was awsome. Ended up doing a four day trek in three days. Saw no animals, so that was pretty disapointing.
We started off with our Ranger, a porter who we shared and carring our own bags. Two hours into the trek, our ranger found himself a porter. 10 minutes later, Jeff started using the Rangers porter to carry his pack. 10 minutes later, our freaking porter got himself a porter.
I laughed so much at that. Kinda hard walking up an embankment while laughing. First day was grueling. 18 km and 2300 meter asent. Exept for 2-3, 5 meter decents, we walked up hill for 9 hours straight. I would do it again, no problem.
Anyway, we are spending christmas here in Jinja and heading out to the South Western most point of Uganda on the 26th.
