Visit by Guinness World Records Recipients

On April 30th Westcoast Reader staff brought Martin & Esther Kafer to meet the Mt. Kilimanjaro group. The Kafer’s are a legendary BC mountain climbing couple who are both Guinness World Records recipients for the oldest man (85) and woman (84) to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro! In 2012 they hiked the same route we took on our successful Kilimanjaro adventure.

They gave a short talk about their life hiking, skiing and climbing mountains in BC and all over the world since marrying 1953. They have summited over 500 mountain peaks and named over 73 mountains – the number of mountains they were the first people to summit!

They are such an inspiration to us all and are stark examples that with the right attitude and passion you can have a very long life of adventures.  STF_4407 STF_4397
