Viewing Post for: Kilimanjaro Climb 2015

Date: Tuesday, February 17
Location: Moshi, TZ

This is going to be a short post. We are heading to the showers.

That we summited the night before seems like a dream. Kili is in the distance like a memory you cant quite reach and then at moments with extreme clarity you are there again.

It was a fast and exhilarating hike to the gate, 4 hours. 30 minutes by bus to town. And we are back to the land of beer, wine, woman and song. We ended the day passing out tips to the porters. A humbling experience. Please ask your climbers about these amazing people. Then we celebrated dinner with our guides and cooks and finally relaxed and laughed in the garden.

In the morning we leave for safari.

We will post one more time so you can see some of the incredible animals we are seeing.

Well you guys did it - up and down without incident! Fantastic. Can't wait to get more updates... Still cold here -- minus 7 on the way to work the other day. No end in sight. Enjoy the warmth while you can. P.S. Had a nice dinner at your parents' the other day. They put on quite a nice feast.

I was out of touch for a week, so I just caught up with your adventure all at once rather than following day by day. What an incredible experience and accomplishment for you both. I'm delighted for you! And now I can stop holding my breath!
