Kilimanjaro: Casey Grom & Team Meet & Greet

Our Kilimanjaro trip is underway! The team arrived late last night after their long flights from the US and after a short drive to our lodge the team had a quick dinner and headed for bed. Today after a hearty breakfast the team met for RMI's official orientation where we did a round of introductions and discussed the upcoming plan for the next few day and the gear essentials for our climb. We spent the remainder of the day packing and relaxing here at this tranquil and private lodge that has numerous wild animals roaming the grounds. There are two different types of monkeys here, the Velvet and the Blue. Several Dik Dik that have been rescued, a few Guinea fowl, and we even managed to see a Genet sneaking around tonight. We are being well taken care of here at the Arumeru River Lodge by their gracious and kind staff. Everyone is doing well and looking forward to a little uphill exercise tomorrow as we head to Kilimanjaro. RMI Guide Casey Grom and Kili Team
