Hello everyone back home this is Casey Grom checking in from our Kilimanjaro trip. Just wanted to report that we are all safely back at high camp and we had a 100% reach the summit today. Pretty amazing day. Weather was still perfect again for us going up. Little chilly, so we’re having to do a little dancing to keep our fingers and toes warm but all in all the group did fantastic. As I said we returned to high camp, we’re packing up and we’re actually going to be descending a few more thousand feet to our last camp, Mweka Camp.  If I get a chance I’ll try to send in a written dispatch. And if not we’ll certainly check in sometime tomorrow when we get off the mountain. That’s all for now, everyone’s doing great and look forward to trying to share few photos in a couple days with you guys.
