The team wrapped up this morning in Arusha with folks heading to safari and others homeward bound. We all enjoyed a wonderful celebration dinner together last night with our fun host Rashida at The Eight- a boutique hotel and restaurant in one of the old colonial neighborhoods of Arusha.
My thanks to everyone on the team for an amazing 9 days together on the Lemosho route! We all reached the summit together, with an overnight in the crater floor and visits to the Northern icecap and Reusch ash pit. There were many special moments together on this trip, not the least of which was having our owner and founder Todd Burleson along with Dané Burleson and their dear old friend— British actor, Julian Sands.
We hailed from afar— USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, South Korea. Something special happened on this trip- a kinship that came together through the experience and challenge of reaching the roof of Africa together.
We are 100% success to the summit on my 4 trips for the second season in a row. It cannot be underscored how hard our local crew works on the mountain and how amazing they are as people. We are very fortunate to be with them. My deepest thanks for All of their hard work!
Time for me to get home and be together with my family, my amazing wife Melissa and our little man- Conner. He is almost 1 year already!
Seth Timpano and Paul Koubek will be here in February to wrap up our season.
Thank You for following along!
