Carstensz Pyramid: Summit!

Good morning, this is Alex Van Steen from the Carstensz Expedition. And my oh my, what a day we had yesterday. And here is the great word: RMI has summitted Carstensz Pyramid! We had a long day but everybody, despite being exhausted, did, really, really well. We all have a little bit of an altitude hack and the desire to head the other direction, but we are just loving this experience. I wish I could send photos via this dispatch, but they will be posted later. We’ve got lots of photos, and lots more stories. Stay tuned. Thanks, good-bye.

Success!!  Congratulations to the team.  We had a celebration for you on Wednesday in Atlanta and invited 60,000 people to run down the middle of Peachtree Street for 10k.  It was a huge event in your honor.
