On July 27, guide Eric Remza phoned in to say that all members had reached Machame Camp. 5.5 hours is good time. Elevation gain is close to 4,000’ so that’s a good effort.
First day is always exciting. After arriving at the Park Entrance, all the members need to register with the Park and it’s fun to watch porter loads being made up, weighed and distributed. Regulations are in place to keep porter loads to a reasonable amount. That’s a good thing and one we strongly support.
Easier day today with camp on the Shira Plateau being the goal. Pole, pole – one step at a time.
