Kilimanjaro: Mark Tucker & Team Arrive in Africa!

The team, as well as our luggage, is here at the Dik Dik Hotel.  We caught up on some jet lag with one member saying, “Best sleep ever.”  After a nice breakfast, we had an orientation meeting then went straight into equipment checks.  So important to take the time to start a climb with what you need for any mountain. The team came well prepared as very little was missing.

Once the team was organized for the climb, we had time to check out the local sights.  Some of the team made a trip to Arusha, a nearby city, while others hiked around our neighborhood visiting shops, schools and an orphanage.  We are all doing well and looking forward to the start of the climb tomorrow.
