Kilimanjaro: Tucker & Team from Shira Camp

Mark Tucker checking in from Camp 2, the Shira Plateau, about 12,200 feet.  We had a nice breakfast and a leisurely pace. A bit of an ascent from our Machame Camp. But a step at a time, a break at a time, and a traverse through a very mystical-kind of environment in and out of some riverbeds.  A pretty enchanting walk and everybody’s doing very well. I’m very pleased with the performance of the team. We’re all happy and healthy. We just finished a fabulous 3-course meal and people are crawling into the tents. We’re having this moon interrupt a little bit of our star gazing. It’s a little bright because no clouds, clear skies. There was a bit of marine layer type sea of muck below us, but not a cloud in the sky today, perfect conditions. A little bit dusty on the trail but a little handkerchief over the nose at times worked out just fine. We’re having a gas. One of our team members, Alberto, wanted do a shout out to his Pops. So, “Hey to you.” He’s having a good time doing really well. It will be another 6:30 up, and hopefully breakfast at 7:15, hitting the trail by around 8:00. Great day tomorrow, break some altitude records. We are hoping to go just over 15,000 feet and then back down to 12,800’ for the night. Very great opportunity for acclimatization. Climb high, sleep low.  It is just setting us up for success. So all is well. We’ll check in tomorrow.
