Ladies and gentlemen, it’s Poa Eh? (entire team shouts). We’re coming at you from Millennium, our last night on Kilimanjaro (12,300 feet above sea level) lower than the last time we spoke to you.
We had a beautiful summit day today, a little bit chilly on the top, with some wind, but nice and clear. Great views, lots of sunshine, and lots of happy climbers.
We are very tired. Just had dinner. We’re going to go to bed, sleep 10 hours and get up, walk down to the gate tomorrow at Mweka.
Everyone is doing great, sends their best back home, and a couple of folks would like to give a shout out:
“This is Ed Koke and this message is for all of our loved ones back home. I know it couldn’t have been easy for you to give your blessings to us to do this trip, particularly because we chose to do it during the Christmas season. But for some reason, you knew that it was important for each of us, that we climb this mountain. We want to thank you for giving us the encouragement and the support that we’ve received, that enabled us to be here and to do something that was very important for each of us. Thank you very much, it was really the best Christmas present you could have given us. Good night.”
“Friends and family, it’s Shawna. I just wanted to let you know I’m safe and well. The summit was amazing! I stood on top of Africa, that was awesome. And that the Billy Goat has summited. Love you, bye.”
Thanks for following along everybody. We’ve had an awesome week together here on Kili, stay tuned for more.
