We Made it! To the top of Kilimanjaro!

We made it to the top of Kilimanjaro! And we’re back safe and sound. We don’t have much time right now, but wanted to let everyone know that it was absolutely amazing, both Jonathan and Carrie summited the mountain, and we’ve got some exciting news to share as well!
From here, we leave for Amsterdam in 3 hours, where we will spend a couple of days. We’re very excited about this next leg of our trip, and are glad to have the time to rest on the plane!
We’ve taken over 700 pictures, and have 2 1/2 hours of video to share with everyone, which will start appearing on the web site shortly, as soon as we’re able to get everything put together into a format that will be accessible for everyone online.
Stay tuned!

    Thanks for the postcard. The kids in my class were kind of depressed because we have four days off from school for the 4th. Their vacation is not as fun as mine unfortunately. They really appreciated hearing from you. We can’t wait to hear about your trip. Congrats on makig it to the TOP! Be safe and continue to have a great time. Jill Andre aka PVYSC Teacher.

    Congrats to both of you! My Plano Texas team is watching closely – we leave for Kilimanjaro on 8/31 (8 of us). There’s so much we want to ask!

    You did it! You did it!
    As for the news you have to share… Hmmm.. Is it of a personal nature? Oh, I think I know. Can’t wait to hear it from you.
    Look forward to the “Home Based Bill” pics.
