Viewing Post for: 2013 Kilimanjaro Cancer Climb

Date: February 17, 2013 2 pm
Location: High Camp, 16,000 feet.

Partly cloudy, 4.5 hiking hours.

Yes! We are at our highest camp. All are back to feeling well. So beautiful. This camp we have to ourselves. We will go to bed at 6 pm and get up about 11 pm. Hike starts about midnight. We gain 500 feet an hour in elevation. If all goes well, and looking good at moment, we will be at the top at 6:00 am. Weather has been exceptional. We will post how people did. That won't be up though until morning your time. Audio is working again. Yeah! Some anxiety as you would expect but group is doing well at supporting each other. Keep those prayers and hopes coming!

For: Tammy and all of you amazing climbers

You are all amazing! I share this from Lori last year: You cannot stay on the mountain forever. You have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know. (Rene Daumel)
