You spend your blood your sweat and your tears You get your Joy your laughter and your African beers Stumbling skyward like the mountains child Humbled by the mountain and its beauty so wild Climbing all day that deep sleep at night When we get to the summit it will be alright

I'm so glad to hear your voice! I believe! I believe in you! I know you're doing it, or probably done it by now. I am so very proud of you! You're on of the most amazing people I know. It's miserably cold here but I bet it gets warmer when you come home. It's been amazing to track you! Africa. You went to Africa and climbed a mountain. You. Are. Effin. Amazing! Thank you for doing a voice post. I teared up too. I love you!

For: Danielle

Saw Eric's picture so you all must be doing OK. It looks like you guys are getting to the summit tomorrow. I assume we'll see pics of you and Paul somewhere along the way if not on top of Kili. Had breakfast with Lori and the kids this morning. Those boys! Take care and say hi to all. P.S. If Tammy Dossman is on your trip, tell Eric that she is a friend of Tom & Pat Bates

When u get this it will be after a great success so here is some humor for u: top 5 reasons why mountain climbing is better than sex: 5-guidebooks tell u how many visitors have been there b4 u 4-the only rubber u wear is on Ur feet 3-u can pick the length of Ur route 2-a climb can last all day and finally #1 everybody peaks at the summit!! Congrats u guys!!! I have no doubt u all made it!! Ang
