Expedition Flag Returns Home After Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro
The Base Camp Expedition Flag has returned home after an incredible adventure to Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa. Our friend Cardy asked us last summer if she could take the flag with her on the trip of a lifetime. Below, she describes the experience and what carrying this flag meant to her.
"I’ve spent quite a bit of time sitting in Base Camp sipping chai tea and admiring all of the pictures on the walls of great adventures and conquered summits. It was an honor to carry the Base Camp Door County flag to new heights when I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro last summer. Kili is the largest freestanding mountain in the world and Uhuru Peak is the highest point on the African continent at 19,341 feet above sea level. Door County has always been my family’s base camp during the summer, ever since my great, great grandfather, George Browning, began coming in 1917, so it only made sense to bring a piece of the place that I adventure out of with me to the summit. Thanks so much for inspiring me and letting me carry your flag!!" - Cardy P.
When it is home, you can see this orange flag with the Base Camp logo proudly hung next to postcards and pictures of its past excursions to various sites around the world. This flag is to symbolize that our coffee bar in Door County can be your Base Camp for adventures near or far. If you are planning an adventure in the near future and may be interested in taking this flag with you, stop in and ask us for more information.
