Hello,
We finished our trek of Kilimanjaro today as we hiked the final leg out from Mweka Camp (10,000’) to the Mweka Gate (6,000’) and said goodbye to our mountain staff.
We met our driver and transferred back to the Dik Dik Hotel.  After nice showers we enjoyed a great dinner celebration.  We have some tired and sore team mates but everyone is very happy.

We are getting excited for the safari adventure that starts in the morning!

Please check out the photo below of Jan and Clint on the summit of Kilimanjaro on August 11th.  The flag they are holding has been flown: on Mt. Rainier, Cotopaxi (Ecuador), Ixtaccihuatl & Pico de Orizaba (Mexico), the U.S. Capital, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, during Desert Storm, Fort Leavenworth, Albania, Germany during the removal of the Berlin Wall, and during Clint’s retirement ceremony from the U.S. Army as Colonel.
