Viewing Post for: 2013 Kilimanjaro Cancer Climb

Date: February 14th, 2013 Valentine's Day
Location: Moira Camp, 13,500 feet.

50 degrees, cloudy, 4:30 pm, arrived at 2:30 pm. 6 hours hike time.

We are a long way from our loved ones. Thank you to those who sent hidden cards. This camp is spectacular and exotic. We are close to the base of the large massif of Kibo, the center part of Kili. Lava flows are frozen in time with weird shaped caves, cliffs and rocks. Not many take this route so quieter, not including the 55 Africans who help us carrying the table, chairs, gear, food....

They all came out to sing and dance upon our arrival. Pretty wild. One guy was wearing a Massia blanket like a cape. We are fortunate to help such a great crew. All are well with a few headaches, light queasiness and such typical at this altitude.

If you are one of the ones who is not feeling so hot at this point, stick with it. If Rick tells you it's going to get better, believe him - turns out he is pretty good at this stuff!!;-) Happy Trails!
