Kilimanjaro: Casey and Team move to 12,500’

Once more into the breach, dear friends.  Today was a shorter hiking day, but I thought much more technically challenging.  We ascended 2500 feet, ending up at tonight’s camp sitting at 12,500’. The road to the camp was dusty and narrow.  I personally found it difficult to maintain the pace of the group due to some stomach issues, but Eric, one of our 40 porters helped me out by carrying my sack for a spell.  I’m happy to report that I feeling much better.  The group is working very well together.  Peter and Fatima brought a high end camera and are on charge of high end shots.  Heidi and Jami are heading up the bunch and in charge of the “walking” photos.  Heidi has dual duties, in that she has to give distance and altitude reports.  Rosa is in charge of local PR with the porters.  Rick, who wanted me to give a special shout out to his two girls at home, is in charge of culinary spicing.  Kendyl and Dan are in charge of fact verification and chocolate supplies.  Me, I’m comic relief.  And Casey, he keeps us all in line and moving toward our goal.  In short, all parties are necessary and I’m glad they are here.

Looking forward to tomorrow,
Dawn & The RMI Team

We sure are missing you but it’s great to be able to get updates while you’re gone and to see pictures.  Little One is loving her daily letters (and also the surprise of seeing what color it will be)!  She seems to enjoy the names of the places (words she’s never heard before of course) because she always repeats them back… too fun. :-)  We love you - have fun and be safe!
