This is the adventure of Macon Dunnagan, who leads a team of six on a journey of a life-time to the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro.
For Dunnagan, this makes his thirteenth trip through the mystical terrain. However, this particular journey is even a first for Dunnagan, as a previous days storm has left the peak of the legendary mountain blanketed with snowfall.
Equipped with 'Polarmax' base layer, Macon braves the elements facing temperatures of -20 degrees ferinheight through nearly eight hours of climb.
At the peak of Kilimanjaro of nearly 20,000 feet above sea level, where man relishes in his accomplishments, Dunnagan realizes that without the aid of the moisture wicking technology that 'Polarmax' base layer provides, his journey would be less about enjoying the adventure and more about enduring the adventure.
