Phil called in via SAT phone to report:
Everyone arrived in Tanzania with all their luggage and in good health. This is a good start to the trip. Having everyone in one place at one time with all their luggage is one of the toughest parts of any big expedition.
Right now we are changing money and doing a little last minute shopping and packing at the Keys Hotel and generally getting ready to begin our 7 day trip up and down Kilimanjaro tomorrow morning. The team looks good with everyone getting along well. We have a diverse group of people from 25yrs old on up to 70 years young.
Everyone is excited about the climb. We’ll keep you posted on how we do.
