One down and one to go. That’s IMG Senior Guide Chris Meder’s mantra right now. He picked up the second IMG Kilimanjaro team for September the same evening he helped the first crew board their flights home. We lucked out again with all members arriving (more or less) on time and with all luggage. Always a nice way to start a trip.
Chris called me this morning (evening his time) to let us know that the crew completed the first day’s hike and had just finished dinner at Machame Camp (10,000 ft). He reported beautiful weather for walking in the morning. Blue skies and views of the summit through the trees during their walk. Nice!
