Elevation: 9,800'

Greetings from Machame Camp,

We could not have had a better day today! This was the first day on the trail and the group did great. We had the trail to ourselves and perfect weather. We heard some very distant thunder but made it to camp without any rain. It was barely an hour later when some light rain started to fall, but fortunately we were already warm and dry in our dining tent, snacking on some tea and popcorn.

We started the day at 6,000’ and made it up to camp in just under 4 1/2 hours, a solid pace.  We are now settled in at camp and the mountain is teasing us with grand views as the clouds roll in and out. The team is feeling really strong and happy to finally be on the mountain.

Best regards,
RMI Guide Jeff Martin

Cheers to Barrie on hanging with what looks to be like a lot of testosterone.  Wish you all the best and enjoy each day of the hike as they are all so different.
