Elevation: 9,800'

All is well at Machame Camp! The team was really fired up this morning.  I was three minutes early to breakfast and I was the last to arrive. It’s great to be on a trip with such an organized team.

The drive to the gate was smooth and after checking in at the gate we started our trek.  The trail was a little slick and muddy but we didn’t get any rain along the way. Once we arrived in camp the crew had everything set up and ready to go. Everyone is now settling in for the night and getting ready for the hike up to Shira tomorrow.

Josh - given climbing conditions you better just go with the 50 pound weight vest tomorrow rather than the 75.  All the best to you and your team!
