We are off the Mountain - safe and sound!

Hello Everyone - friends, family, and supporters....We are all off the mountain, healthy and happy! You will be happy to know that most of our team reached the summit, Uhuru Peak, and that everyone achieved their own personal goals and individual "summits". It was a beautiful night - the stars were out and we all sang songs quietly as we climbed the final 3000ft to our goal - the roof of Africa. We are now off to celebrate at dinner in Moshi town. Thanks for all of your words of support. We will post photos on the Blog in next 24hrs.
