A word from Sean Disney


JAMBO !  The Barefoot Impi came to me and ADVENTURE DYNAMICS – 8 months ago with this crazy project and I said I would sleep on it.  These mad men and woman want to climb Kilimanjaro with no shoes!  I woke at midnight and said “YES” it can be done but I would have to  adjust the logistics, season and routing to accommodate this band of brave warriors and one “warrioress”!  The rest is history…..

GI, Skinny, Wors, Cam, Doc, Dave, Kop, Rich, and Paul – congrats to you all!  I have not seen a well “gelled” team to hit a project of this magnitude with such passion in a long time, you guys deserve all the credit you get!  Thank you OLD MUTUAL and also a BIG thumbs up to SALOMON Mountain Gear for the best kit in the world!

In the last four months, two out of every three people said to me a barefoot ascent of Kilimanjaro could not be done…we have proved it can and to all those who followed and supported us – a big thank you to you also.

In closing my blog I would like to tell you a story – on one of my failed Everest expeditions, when I didn’t summit Everest, 300 people phoned me to give their condolences – When I did finally summit Everest in 2006 – 100 people phoned to congratulate me …..  speaks for itself doesn’t it!

CONGRATS TO ALL AND THANKS FOR A GREAT TRIP!  SEE YOU SOON – SEAN DISNEY www.adventuredynamics.co.za
