Team 1, Uhuru Y’all, Summits In Great Weather! Everyone Back Down Safely

Hey everyone it’s Uhuru Y’all, team #1 on Kilimanjaro. It’s the 9th of July, Monday at about 6:30 pm and we had a great summit day today, awesome weather, everybody did great. We are now down at our low camp on the mountain, at Millennium, about 12,200 feet and we are going to have our last dinner here on the mountain with our Tanzanian Crew, and tomorrow head on down to the Mweka gate and out to Arusha so we can have our celebration dinner and get set up for everyone to go on Safari. Uhuru would like to wish a happy birthday to Julie and to let her know that we did it! Everyone is doing awesome and sends their best back to everyone at home.
