Hi Everyone! It’s about 10:30 PM here in Arusha, on Wednesday night. It has been a busy week! Teams 3 & 4 are on the mountain and Team 5 has now all arrived here to Arusha. We are only missing 1 bag, and are hopeful that it will arrive tomorrow during orientation day.
Tomorrow will be filled with organization, gear checks, town tour, and our first dinner as a team together. We head to Kilimanjaro on Friday the 27th for our first day’s walk from the Machame gate (elevation 6,450 feet) to Machame Camp (10,000 feet), about 6 miles and 5-6 hours, entirely in the lush and beautiful forest zone belt of the mountain. We will give you a shout from our first camp.
Thanks for following along!
