Leaving for the Mountain!

This morning we are leaving for our mountain and everyone is excited and a bit apprehensive. We had a good "layover" day yesterday at the Kilemakyaro Lodge - eating good food, going for a short practice hike in the noonday hot African sun, napping, more eating and then packing and preparing for our summit attempt. The group has come together well - from BC, Alberta, ON and even Arizona and, in true Outward Bound style, we are building a community. We will likely be unable to send as many photos going forward as it is harder to get the "bandwidth" on the mountain to send big files. We will send when we can. But, we are all healthy and well-excited and ready for our big adventure! Thank you to our families, friends and supporters for your contributions to our fundraising efforts (close to $85k right now and still coming in) and to helping us get here and following our progress.
