Mt. Elbrus: Justman & Team Travel to Saint Petersburg

Posted by: JJ Justman | July 28, 2014
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Elbrus Southside

Our team left the Baksan Valley and the beautiful Caucasus Mountains and hopped a flight to Saint Petersburg.  Yes!!! It’s a St. Petersburg selfie!! Eat your heart out Ellen! That is the expression you have when you arrive in St. Petersburg. The team had a long day first driving to the airport and then flying to get here.  And let me tell you…it is worth it. I love this city and I can’t wait to share the sights with the team. It is a luxurious way to end our adventure in Russia.

Mt. Kilimanjaro: Hahn & Team Arrive in Tanzania

Posted by: Dave Hahn | July 28, 2014
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Kilimanjaro

We’ve assembled in Tanzania for an ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro.  More importantly, our baggage has accompanied us.  All 10 climbers and their guide arrived safely at the tranquil Dik Dik Hotel on the outskirts of Arusha.  We spent today organizing gear for the climb, meeting with our expedition staff and catching up on jet-lag-lost sleep.  Starting early tomorrow, we’ll climb aboard the fully loaded tricked out off-road-ready expedition vehicle and head for the hills.  Conditions have been partly cloudy with comfortable temperatures and team members have been granted partial views of Kilimanjaro as reward for climbing the lofty water tower on the Dik Dik grounds. 

We’ll need to get walking tomorrow… The quality and quantity of excellent food served up in the dining room of the hotel will have us absolutely spoiled if we don’t make a break for it.

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn

Mt. Kilimanjaro: Tucker & Team Tucked in at High Camp

Posted by: Mark Tucker | July 28, 2014
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Kilimanjaro
Elevation: 15,000'

Hello from 15,000’ on Mt. Kilimanjaro.

All our team is here at High Camp, Barafu Camp (15,000’), in great shape and ready to go. We left from Karanga Camp this morning and made it to our new camp in good time. We enjoyed another nice lunch from our mountain staff and spent time organizing and packing up to make our early morning departure quick and easy. Here at Barafu Camp life is good. There are a few clouds around but that is not unusual and we are in hopes of a clear windless night ahead. We had a relaxing afternoon with lots of tent time, putting our feet up and drying out the boots, reading, writing, and maybe a bit of cards. We are taking it easy and making sure everyone is rested and ready for our upcoming adventure.
We will try and give you a shout out from the Roof of Africa tomorrow.

Mt. Elbrus: Grom and Team Explore Moscow

Posted by: Casey Grom | July 27, 2014
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Elbrus Southside

Hello everyone and welcome to RMI’s July 25th Mt. Elbrus trip!

After some very long flights the team safely arrived yesterday, we briefly touched base about today’s plan before folks retired to catch up on some much needed sleep.

Today we had our official team meeting over breakfast at our hotel. It was hard to concentrate while enjoying plenty of fresh bread, cheeses, meats, juice and other delightful things. Once our bellies were full we stumbled out the door to explore the Kremlin and Red Square which is only a short distance away. A few folks visited Lenin’s tomb and a few of us wandered around the area enjoying the site.

We met our tour guide around 10:30 am and spent much of the day with her visiting St. Basil’s Cathedral, the Kremlin, and the Cathedral of Christ the Savior. Our tour guide even took us on a brief tour of the amazing Moscow subway - it has a 194 different stops and most are elaborately decorated and incredibly clean! We did visit the famous Red Square but for unknown reasons it was closed and blocked off today.

Afterwards we took a short break where most of us took cat naps to help adjust to the almost 12 hour time change and then headed back out for a quick dinner before calling it a night.

Everyone is doing great!

Mt. Kilimanjaro: Tucker & Team Ascend the Barranco Wall

Posted by: Mark Tucker | July 27, 2014
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Kilimanjaro
Elevation: 13,000'

Hello!
We are checking in from high on Mt. Kilimanjaro. Here in the alpine desert there is a stark reminder that only the heartiest survive at this altitude. That is just what we are doing and in great style, mind you a hearty group we are. After a great climb of the famous Baranco wall early this morning led to the traverse below the southern side of the summit massive. We had intermittent clouds that made for nice climbing to the Karanga Camp. The Diamond, Balletto, Heim, Decken, and Kersten glaciers loom just above reminding us that we still have a ways to go. The team continues to do well, all is good

Mt.Kilimanjaro: Tucker & Team Reach New Heights

Posted by: Mark Tucker | July 26, 2014
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Kilimanjaro
Elevation: 12,800'

Another very nice day on Mt. Kilimanjaro. We set out at 8 am after yet another delicious breakfast we are definitely not losing any weight on this trip. We left the moorland zone of vegetation and moved into the alpine zone meaning not much living up there. A couple of white necked ravens would visit us at our breaks thinking they may get a hand out but doing our best at the leave no trace policy they would have to rummage else where for a snack. Right at high noon we hit the high mark of just under 15,000’ which was a new altitude record for most of the team. We then descend down to 13,000’ where the Baranco camp is and home for the night. The whole team is feeling good and climbing with great style.
