Mount Kilimanjaro

I'm not sure how many of you know but my cousin and uncle went to Africa last week for 2 weeks. While their they will be doing all kinds of crazy things. Today we got word that Jeremy, Brad and their friends made it to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. They were at the summit for about 30 minutes and LOVED it - the temperature was well below freezing and VERY thin oxygen but they DID IT!!!! They will take about 2-3 days to get back down.
Just in case you can't remember those fun facts from school...
Mt. Kilimanjaro is in Tanzania Africa and the top (summit) is about 20,000 - this is the highest point in Africa. Pretty Cool!!! I'm sure I will post a few pics of the trip when they get home.
