Had a quick chat with Eben this morning (early Seattle time). He let us know that the team had reached Mweka Camp at 10,000’. Guys are big time tired but big time thrilled. Reminds me of the old expression – “No guts, no glory”. Tomorrow’s an easy 4 hours out to the trailhead at the Mweka Gate. The chef from the Keys Hotel will meet the team with a hot lunch. The porters each need to be personally tipped and thanked by the team and then it’s off to the hotel for showers and a likely run into Moshi… What for, you ask? Milkshakes.
