Kilimanjaro: Tucker & Team Begin Climb

Hello!
Mark Tucker checking in with an update from Tanzania, Africa.  We are on our day one of the ascent of Mt. Kilimanjaro with RMI Expeditions.  We started under clear skies and beautiful weather with a high temperature of close to 80 degrees throughout the day.
We arrived our Camp 1, Machame Camp, around 10,000’ and everybody is in good shape.  Attitudes are very, very well.  We just finished a nice chicken dinner and we are getting ready to crawl into our tents.

Being a clear evening, I anticipate that it will probably get down to about freezing maybe a little frost on the tents in the morning.  But everybody’s gear is checking out and will be tucked into warm sleeping bags and we are looking forward to a good night’s rest.  We are still a little tired from our flights from the US.  Everyone is doing very well and excited to be here. 

We will check in tomorrow with another update.  All the best from Tanzania.

Hi Carlos,

Happy birthday to your 50th’s from the EU Team! Hopefully you’ll be able to find a piece of cake of your way up today! (Who knows, maybe Scott brought some?)

All the best for you and the team for the way up!
