There is just something powerful about saying 100 Days To Mt. Kilimanjaro! I still remember writing a post titled Parker’s Climb – The First 100 Days, and at that time it felt like we were light years away from stepping foot on Mt. Kilimanjaro. As I always say, “Time stops for no one” and nothing is more true than for those who are living with Parkinson’s disease! And that brings me to why the Parker Family chose to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro to begin with!

It is with great pleasure that Parker’s Climb launches Peter Glenn of Vermont to our retail line up to benefit our 2011 Team Fox Event! I cannot think of a better retail partner to represent in keeping with our sporting mission towards climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in July 2011 to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Geoffrey and I are extremely fortunate that we have a Peter Glenn store in Ft. Lauderdale. We have already purchased things there for our previous two climbs of Mt. Katahdin and Mt.

We awoke to a sunny Saturday in Sebastian with temperatures in the mid-70′s this morning. It was a balmy warm morning with thick salty air and a pretty strong head wind blowing during our bicycle ride along Indian River Drive. This was the first day on the bicycles since late September so it was a bit of work. Wow, where does time go? This is our first weekend in Sebastian since September and it is the end of November. I tried to recall why we had not been here in two months, then I remembered that we did spend a few days in the Berkshires in September when we climbed Mt. Greylock.

Tonight our post comes to us from Madeleine – the youngest Parker in our group. While away at school she is doing the posts for Parker’s Climb this weekend!
Possible Injury Might Prevent Young Parker from Climbing Greylock
I acquired this knee injury in quite an unusual way, and my friends still continue to make fun of me while I hobble around campus from class to class. Saint George’s School is located on a hill and the main school building on the very top is where I have most of my classes. The old building has no . . . → Read More: 259 Days To Mt.

Geoffrey and I started our day walking the track around the Pompano Beach Park. The walk from start to finish is about 4.35 miles and we finished it in about an hour and a half. We were in no rush and just decided to take it easy.
It was the first time we have walked the track since climbing Mt. Katahdin and we figured we better get a few miles in before Mt. Greylock. All in all it was a pretty easy walk.
We fully intended to start out early while it was cool, but did not get started until . . . → Read More: 273 Days To Mt. Kilimanjaro – Grandma’s Wedding Gift
When you decide to climb a mountain, the next thing you have to decide is what trail you are going to take! I am leaving this up to Geoff. He was in charge of researching Mt. Katahdin, and we all came down unscathed, (if you can call the bruises on my knees unscathed), so I am confident in his choice here too.
Mt. Greylock has 13 trails to choose from. Geoff took a look at the various trails and the winner is, The Cheshire Harbor Trail. The average time to climb from base to summit and down is listed at . . . → Read More: 278 Days To Mt. Kilimanjaro – Mt. Greylock, The Cheshire Harbor Trail
