Kilimanjaro: Mark Tucker & Team Begin Trek

Jambo
Our team arrived safely in Arusha, Tanzania on July 24th.  We spent two nights at the beautiful Dik Dik Hotel resting and recovering from our long flights and adjusting to this new climate and time zone.  After sorting our gear, repacking our bags are readying ourselves for the mountain, our trek of Kilimanjaro has finally begun.  The Dik Dik hotel is fantastic but it is great to get started on the mountain.  We enjoyed perfect climbing conditions today. We drove from the Dik Dik Hotel to the Machame Entrance of Kilimanjaro National Park.  We donned our day packs and started out, enjoying the feel of our feet on the trail after so many hours of travel.  From the entrance to our first camp, the Machame camp, we gained about 3,800’.  We pulled into the Machame Camp (9,800’) in good style.  We are resting, eating popcorn in our nice dining tent and enjoying each others company.

Everybody feels great and did just fine today. We are looking forward to a good nights sleep and another good day on the trail tomorrow.
We will check in again soon.
