Kilimanjaro: Grom & Team Arrive in Tanzania, Get Ready for the Climb

Jambo (Swahili for hello/greetings) from Tanzania 

All is well here in Tanzania and the team has finally all safety arrived after some very long flights. It was a short and peaceful ride to our lodge that is nestled in between Arusha and Moshi and not so far from the base of Kilimanjaro. The team had a quick dinner and headed for bed as the time change had us all feeling just a little off and pretty tired after all the traveling. 

Today we had a leisurely morning with our group meeting after breakfast , where we did a round of introductions and then discussed the upcoming program for the days ahead. The team spent the remainder of the day getting our gear packed up, exploring the grounds of our peaceful lodge and dodging the gaggle of monkeys patrolling the grounds. 

We wrapped up the evening with a delicious meal and plenty of friendly conversations.

Seems the team has had their fill of cake since we enjoyed celebrating our 2nd birthday in a row already.

Everyone is doing well and excited to be here.  

RMI Guide Casey Grom and the Kili crew!

It’s worth the trip just to have dinner in that cool lodge! I’m blown away by the whole idea of such an adventure. I read the mountain facts Katy posted and looked at images. Stunning. You’re going clear up to the edge of glaciers?! I’m looking at maps of the routes. Naaaaa…. really?! My eyeballs are popping out. And you’re going through so many climates. The rainforest looks amazing and you’re going to walk right through it. It looks like you’ll see all sorts of animals too. This is truly inspiring and exciting. Thank you for sharing your trip. I’m on my way to the bank, where I can tell the teller I know somebody who’s climbing Kilimanjaro, then I’m stopping by my insurance agent, where surely it will be necessary to mention I know somebody climbing Kilimanjaro as we discuss car insurance, being closely related topics. This is so exciting!
