Kilimanjaro:  Standing on Top, Uhuru Peak!

Jambo to all. 

Well we did it, all the “Tucklings” to the top. We tried to give a call from the summit but I’ll tell you, it was cold and breezy, and a half battery wasn’t enough, the charge wasn’t there.  But I’m back down here as well as the rest of the team at our high camp, Barafu at 15,000’.

We are going to toute suite out of here.  I’m going to have to start poking a few of them with my ski pole, to keep them moving.  But we’ll get another 5,000’ to descend to the Mweka Camp.  Pretty easy to crawl into the bag and here and take a nap. But, the old machine may seize up so I’m going keep pushing them along.

Everybody did just fantastic.  Of course there were a few issues here and there and people were challenged.  Half of them said it was probably the hardest thing they’ve ever done in their life physically. And the other half, you know they were lying.  So, all is well. I’ll try and get this iPAQ thing working again and do a dispatch once we get down to Mweka Camp. I appreciate you guys all checking in. Cheers from Kilimanjaro, Uhuru Peak!
