Kilimanjaro: Hahn & Team Packing, Prepping and Napping

Monday, August 7, 2023 - 6:48 pm PT

Our team got busy with getting ready today.  We met after breakfast in the garden-like compound of our hotel  -Rivertrees.  The huge fig trees along the Usa River throw plenty of shade and make for a fine playground for various troupes of monkeys.  Our meeting delved into the particulars of how the climb on Kilimanjaro will flow and just how we will prepare for it.  The team then dispersed to their rooms for gear checks and ultimately packing and weigh-ins.  The afternoon was spent in this way, and with a few naps and cups of tea in the garden thrown in.  Having mostly come from the west coast of North America, our gang is thoroughly jet-lagged.  It was exciting in the evening to greet Brent Okita and his successful team of Kili climbers as they returned to the hotel.  We then enjoyed our dinner -the last before the big event- while on the other side of the dining area, they enjoyed theirs as a victory dinner. 

Best Regards

RMI Guide Dave Hahn
