Elevation: 15,300'

Hello everyone this is JJ Justman with the RMI Mexican Volcanoes adventure team. We are very happy to report that the entire team is up at high camp on Ixta.  We are now at 15,300’.  It’s a long day carrying heavy packs to get up here, but it is definitely well worth it.  I’m looking towards the summit right now.  We just have a couple thousand feet to go. So we’re getting our tents secured down and guyed out. And we’re also working on a little bit of a hot drink as well as a dinner for this evening, which is gonna include some homemade sausage with a little bit of Ramen soup, and cheese quesadillas. Stay tuned tomorrow. I’ll definitely give a call in.  The weather right now is beautiful.  We’re keeping our fingers crossed that it’s going to remain the same and wish us luck and we’ll touch base hopefully with some great news tomorrow.  Everyone’s doing great and they all say hello.  Bye.
