Hey all ya’ll, it’s Arush -to the top- a, here on Kilimanjaro, “Wooo!” (team cheers in background). It’s the 11th of July, about 8pm here, Tanzania time. We’re on our 4th day of the trip and we’re at Karanga Camp, 13,300 feet above sea level. We’re all sitting here at the dinner table, all 16 or 17 of us, with our bellies full and feeling good. We had a nice day today, good weather, nice sunshine and Townes easily and comfortably dispatched his concerns of the Baranco Wall in good style, (cheers in background) he’s keeping us all inspired. We’re going to get a good night’s sleep tonight and then head up to High Camp tomorrow, on the 12th, in preparation for walking up to the roof of this mother. A couple of folks would like to say hello.
“Hi Linda, this is Emerson, the old adage is true, wish you were here, we’ll be seeing you soon and wish me well tomorrow, thank you.”
“Hello John, Kiran, Shivan, Sanjay, it’s Mom calling, I’m doing great, having a great time and I hope you are getting stronger. At the top of Africa, looking forward to seeing you next week.”
Yeeha, thanks for following along everybody, we’ll give you a shout tomorrow from High Camp before our summit.
