Mt. Kilimanjaro: Tucker & Team Celebrate Success

We are here at the Dik Dik hotel and enjoying it. The team made quick work of the 4,000 foot descent this morning, arriving at the gate well before noon. We had a brief customary departure sign out with the park service, a lunch stop along the way. When we arrived at the hotel, a welcome song greeted us upon our arrival. Then a hot shower to wash away some gathered mountain product, but it couldn’t rid us of a whole bunch of memories made while on the climb. Some of the team has been reunited with loved ones, how about a grandma and grandpa joining us here in Africa. How cool is that? While the rest of the team is jealous, we have to carry on and look forward to a reunion when we get back home.

Tomorrow starts the safari part of our program here. We are getting ready to bid farewell to one of the team who leaves for the airport tonight so as to not miss the start of the fall quarter. Is the summer really coming to a close? Better get out while you can!

Hey Tucker,

Jennifer and I were just telling our kids that we knew someone who reached the summit of Mt Everest. We looked you up and are glad to see you are still climbing. It has been many years since the Hostar days.

Take Care,
Chris & Jennifer McInerney (Hertzberg)
