Kilimanjaro Climb & Safari

Mt. Kilimanjaro: Team Ascends the Barranco Wall

Jambo from Mt. Kilimanjaro!  We are on the trail.  Last night was wonderful at Barranco camp and this morning we slept in a bit before heading up the wall.  The climbing was great and the group did very well.  We can see the upper mountain glaciers and the high camp.  We are getting close to our goal!

We are now at our Karanga Valley Camp.  The team did great on the trail into camp.  We had a great lunch here and have been relaxing this afternoon.  Everyone is psyched for the trip to high camp tomorrow morning.

Everyone should be at camp by now resting and getting ready for the final push.  I’m very hopeful everyone can make it.  I’ll be thinking about you all a lot tonight.  Best of luck!!!

So proud of you Josh. It’s great to see every step of the journey through these reports.  We are bubbling with excitement for you here on the home front- everyone we see asking your report.  Enjoy every moment- breathe deep- take it all in!  Much love!

Hey Granps (Roger Rathburn),
I hope all is going well on your trip. Looks like a fun time based off the website.
Stay safe and keep your head up :)

If I’m right, The Kil-Crew will make a small trek tomorrow.  Then take a short sleep, get up at Midnight and leave at 1:00am.  That means they will be heading out at 6:00pm EDT on Saturday.  I’ll be thinking of you all a lot Saturday evening.  Onward and Upward!

Three cheers for the team and Roger! I think of you all often and how proud you all make us feel! Roger, do we have to make this a family tradition? You certainly set the bar high for goals to accomplish.

Thinking of you dad! I still can’t believe that you are doing this for real!!! You are in the home stretch. Wishing you all a great climb.

I think about the “Kil-Crew” every morning when I get up.  Knowing that you’re 7 hours ahead, I know you’re somewhere in the middle of your daily trek.  Summit-Sunday is Oh-So close.  With the anxiety and excitement I’m feeling for everyone, I feel like I’m there.  Roger, keep pushing.  I’m sure this is the toughest thing you’ve done in your entire life.  The toughest thing at age 75 is pretty darned cool.
