"I'm heading to Fatburger!"  That was Ace Photographer Kovar's conclusion this morning after regaling the crowd at 7th and Montana with tales of his recent journey to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest free-standing mountain rise in the world.  Kovar spent most of the past month in Africa shooting a documentary about seven-year-old Keats Boyd and his successful bid to become the youngest person ever to reach the summit of Kilimanjaro.  Along the way, Kovar, Keats and the team had what sounds like the Experience of a Lifetime.  Imagine flicking gargantuan, poisonous spiders off your pillow at night;  eating termites fresh from the mound (Kovar wisely took a pass);  watching elephants traipse through your campsite;  and scrambling to keep everything together when freezing, 70-mile-per-hour gusts of wind blow your tent down.  Sounds dangerous?  Not to worry, the team had a genuine Maasai Warrior with them at all times.  Needless to say, Kovar said he was "thrilled" to be home.  We might have our share of Bullshit at 7th and Montana, but at least we don't have to dodge any Elephant Chips along the way ...!

I know, I'm not supposed to be on here.  I've kept a few alerts on.  Mostly those who don't ramble.  Did I say that?
Good to see he made it back in one piece!

I think it would of been a fantastic adventure to have been on. Minus the elephant chips. Spiders don't bother me. (Hugs) Indigo
