Several minutes later, we were already busy packing our personal stuff to bring for the climb. I took the liberty for a cup of coffee, treated myself a quick shower, then flew to the atm to grab some cash to pay for the reg fee. Just a few minutes before the call-time, we were already at the meeting place. One after the other, the rest of the participants arrived safely much to our hearts’ content. For a few moments more, we waited a little for the others to come. A brief orientation was held regarding the climb. Then we finally asked for His blessings and guidance for a safe climb before heading off.
It was one tiring November night when I found myself with aching head and legs, back at my cramped bed. I searched for my phone and the clock says it's already 7. The next thing I knew, I was defeated by the darkness of my own room.
PPS. In behalf of the organizers, I would like to thank everyone who have participated and contributed for the success of this activity; from the hikers, sponsors, and donors who unselfishly shared a part of themselves by lending us their time climbing with us up to the peak and by providing resources necessary towards the realization of our purpose. We know that a simple thank you would not suffice, but from the bottom of our hearts, thanks anyway.
