Kilimanjaro: Grom & Team at Machame Camp

The team was up by 6:30 and out the door by 7:30 after a quick breakfast. We loaded up all the gear and food then drove for just over a hour to Kilimanjaro National Park. Once we were at the park entrance we registered our team and picked the 20+ porters to help us along the way. We were the first team to start walking thankfully, as a team of 100 showed up and began picking their 300+ porters. It was busy at the gate but we managed to stay out front all the way to camp. It was far from a perfect day here on Kilimanjaro. We encountered a very heavy rain after about two hours of hiking that soaked us almost to the bone. Everyone did great and remained positive despite the less than ideal weather.

We are currently relaxing in our tents now that the rain has subsided and are getting ready for dinner. Tomorrow we’ll have more than a few items hanging from our pack to dry in the sun.

Enjoying the adventure!

I’m not sure if this gets through while they are on the mountain, but if so, tell Holly (and the others) I’m sure the rain will abait, and be well worth what comes next.

Dear Casey & Team,

My husband and I were on this adventure about 4 1/2 months ago with Casey. The fun is just beginning and I know you will all succeed! Enjoy the trip, you’re in great hands with Casey! Love to all. Good luck!!
