Mt. Kilimanjaro: Tucker & Team Reach the Summit!

Elevation: 19,340'

Jambo! Jambo!  Mark Tucker calling you from the Roof of Africa. With incredible timing we stood on top the moment the sun rose. We had the top pretty much to ourselves.  And I’ve got everybody here with me and couldn’t ditch them.  We’re all standing up here on the summit of Kilimanjaro and everybody is doing great. We are finishing up with the photos.  It’s a little bit chilly a little bit breezy but we are all nice and comfy based upon our precision like accuracy with our clothing. All is well and I’ll check in back at low camp.  You can rest easy, everybody is looking strong, everybody is tight and together, a great climbing team. So we’re all doing well. I’ll check in later.
