Kilimanjaro 02nd- 12th September 2009

Jerry Walsh- '02nd Sept: I am heading back for my 8th time to Africa with destination Mt Kilimanjaro. I have the pleasure of the company of Frank Lynam, Louis Lynam, Derek Carruthers and Vincent Kelly. We met in Amsterdam from Cork and Dublin and enjoyed the flights despite the early start. Moods are high in anticipation of what is in store over the coming days'

03rd Sept This morning the team contacted us from the Serena Hotel at 1371 meters. All members are well and heading out for a walk to familiarise themselves with their new environment. Tomorrow morning they leave the comfort of their 5* hotel for the Machame Gate where their adventure really begins. We look forward to hearing back from the team on their ascent over the coming days. Our best wishes are with them all- Lorraine, Niall & Pat
