Youngest Summit of Kilimanjaro

Sorry for no updates, but the net hasn't worked but once in two weeks. Keats made the summit January 21 at 3:45 pm in freezing rain, sleet and snow. He was amazing - he wouldn't be stopped it was a 14-hour day for the little guy. Several times his guide and I told him to go down but he kept saying "up, up." I kid you not.

On the 5th night on the mountain we had 70-mph winds and below zero temperature. Two tents from another group were blown completely off the mountain that night. The screams were horrible - fortunately everyone made it out of the tents before they blew away.

We won't be back for 10 days or so.

It was a hell of a thing.

Kindest regards,

Bryan Boyd
