Viewing Post for: Kilimanjaro Climb 2014

Date: Thursday, January 23
Location: Moira camp. 13,400

Sunny, then cloudy, night 25 degrees, day 40 to 55 degrees Notes to the studio audience. Paul G, Hemed says hi and is extremely grateful. He is here with us. To Charlie's frat bros. "I versed out with The True Gentleman today" for their reflection. As indicated in the pic, we have quite the band. Charlie handed out 12 harmonicas, rattles and other instruments. We got to camp and danced and sang with the African crew. Instruments going, clapping, twirling, general craziness. Awoke to our first clear view of our goddess, madam Kili. She hid again as the day went on. All are still well. Except some wind issues. Landscape changed to high desert, translate to this is crazy exotic lunar looking. Tomorrow objective, the high altitude test of 15,00 feet. Good luck.

Writing from Hope Town, Bahamas! I can almost hear that harmonica jam session here. While listening to the steel drums tonight, I will raise a glass of rum to all of your new found musicians.

You are among a limited few in the world to experience adventure to this degree! I can't help smiling as I read the descriptions of what you and the group are experiencing daily. I look forward to see your next speaking engagement with all the new slides from this trip!!

Sounds like you are headed to Lava Tower tomorrow - keep your hats on and cameras ready. Lots of trails to be seen in the distance, all converging. We are expecting a great slide show when you return. Stay strong (save all that hot air for climbing). And mostly, POLE POLE

Enjoy! I remember your 1st summit! I was supposed to be there. It was your Birthday on February 9th 2000. Now my daughter Naomi's birthday - the reason I wasn't on the trip. She still has the teeny tiny bracelet my mom got her in the village. I hope everyone is successful on their summit attempt. My stepfather Brian always wanted to try again since he wasn't able to make it due to altitude. Best wishes!
