    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    Mount Kilimanjaro is sometimes called the “everyman’s Everest” because it’s possible for even a novice to reach the summit. That’s how Daniel Dorr got started; a novice who was trying to impress a beautiful brunette with dreams of adventure. 6 months later he was laying on the cold gravel trail in Africa at 18,000 ft., panting and hacking in the darkness. But it didn’t end there.

    Kissing Kilimanjaro is a detailed and sometimes humorous account of a regular guy who goes from the comforts of home to the rigors of a 19,340 ft. mountain. Join Dorr as he fondles expensive gear, travels local-style across East Africa, confronts a Masai warrior, trudges up the mountain and vomits on the top of the African continent.

    Follow him through the minor inconveniences and major self-discoveries that come with mountaineering. It’s the story of an ordinary man trying to do something extraordinary and all the rewards—both large and small—of reaching for personal fulfillment through adventure travel, physical challenge, and the ability to leave it all on the mountain.

    Made in USA.
