Additional Information

I found the following books useful in planning my trip:

If you're interested in another person's experiences on Kilimanjaro, Micheal Crichton describes his experience in his book Travels.

Though I read it long after my climb, I found High Mountain Challenge: A Guide for Young Mountaineers by Linda Buchanan Allen to be conceptually helpful. Of the various books I've read on backpacking and mountaineering, this was one of the few that dealt with how it feels, physically and emotionally, to be walking in strenuous circumstances. I think that if I had read this book before I went, I would have dealt with my discomforts with greater aplomb, and would have worried less that I was "doing it wrong.".
