TJG , My trekking buddy did consider the pee bottle but to be honest I didnt trust his aim !! and there was little room in our tent . Sorry if too much information ;-) That said I know guys that do really cold treks and in a bigger tent the pee bottle is a better solution . Shout to the Top .....Chris

Thanks for the blog. Brings back great memories. Here's a note to future Kilimanjaro climbers: To avoid having to get in and out of your tent to relieve yourself during the night, I suggest designating one bottle as a urine bottle, which you empty in the morning. While you still have to awake and relieve yourself, it's much less work, and warmer, to do so in your tent. For the women interested in doing so, they make funnels to allow you to go in a bottle. My wife used one and saved a lot of hassle during our climb. Sorry if this is too much information, but such are the things you deal with when climbing Africa's highest peak. Looking forward to the rest of your story.
