Hello everyone, this is Sarah calling from Team Kichaa Kidogo, up here on Kilimanjaro and I am calling from Kosovo, which is our high camp (which is at about 15,800 feet). And it’s about 6 o’clock and we are done with dinner. We saw a beautiful sunset, and folks are tucked in for a little nap before we get up at 11 o’clock to attempt the summit. So we’re getting excited here.
We had a nice walk this morning, beautiful weather, great view of the mountain, so everyone enjoyed some great views and great pictures all the way up here to high camp. It took us about four hours to get up here. We had a nice lunch and spent some time talking about summit day and all we needed to pack, and what we needed to wear and what we needed to bring…. (transmission cuts out)…. and had a little time for a nap. And then we had a nice, early dinner and we celebrated Simon’s birthday. So the cooks up here made an amazing birthday cake and we sang Simon “Happy Birthday” and enjoyed cake at 15,8. Pretty good living for us!
And our next mission is to get up at 11, and we’re going to shoot for walking out of high camp, somewhere around midnight, and hopefully enjoy the six and a half, to seven and a half hour, hike up to the summit. So everyone’s doing well, folks are feeling good. Everyone had a good dinner and is resting well now. And we will call you when we’re back down from the summit. That’s all for now.
