Viewing Post for: 2011 Kilimanjaro Climb for Cancer

Date: February 21, 2011
Location: Moshi, Tanzania

Habari ya asubuhi! Good morning, hey we all made it! Still waiting for 2 bags, not bad. Great blue African sky, fresh air, one huge mountain in front of us. Some discovery moments with hot water. Hot dogs for breakfast with some great fresh fruit and pineapple. Angela medicated everyone in the group on the flight. Everyone was knocked out. We all felt like princesses under our mosquito nets last night. Today is Moshi town day and shopping. Yahoo! Baadaye! Later.

One year ago today I was standing at the summit of Kilimanjaro taking a thousand pictures and eating some authentic Swiss cheese (true story). The journey was tiring and exciting - we laughed and cried and ate a lot of hot dogs for breakfast. Now you all are there beginning the journey and I could not be more excited for you. In just a week you'll be standing where we were a year ago laughing and crying and hopefully you'll find a Swiss guy with some cheese. I'm thinking of you all during your j

Today it was so hard for me to get out of bed. I am so tired and it is freezing out. Then I thought about what the two of you will be doing today. As I sat there, and reality and guilt set in, I got moving. My motivation for the day... if you are climbing a mountain I can get my ass up outta bed and go to work! At least we have heat there! :) So as you begin your journey today remember, we are all thinking of you and we are all inspired by what you are doing! Love you!!!!
