Mt. Kilmanjaro

Kilimanjaro, by any name, is a metaphor for the compelling beauty of East Africa. When you see it, you understand why. Not only is this the highest peak on the African continent; it is also the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, rising in breathtaking isolation from the surrounding coastal scrubland – elevation around 900 metres – to an imperious 5,895 metres (19,336 feet).

Rocky is doing great. He sure is a ball player. Don't worry about him and best of luck to you, I'm rooting you all on. Tell my brother, Kevin, Hello for me!

So, everybody wants to know how it's going up there on Kili. How IS it going? Satellite imagery yesterday seemed to show good weather, but a little breezy. Hope to hear news from you on blog soon.
