Aconcagua:  Justman & Team Rest at Camp 2

Posted by: JJ Justman, Leah Fisher | December 26, 2013
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Aconcagua
Elevation: 18,000'

Safety is priority number one. Rumors of high winds coming in early next week has our team paying close attention to the forecast. The higher the winds, the colder it gets. Lucky for us we have all the necessary gear. Sure our packs are big but we are warm.

For now, the team is lounging around Camp 2 at 18,000 feet on Aconcagua. We went up to 19000 + feet to acclimatize and everyone is doing really, really well. We need to rest and recuperate here tomorrow. We will be watching the winds and then we will make a game plan.

Keep the fingers crossed and the positive vibes coming!!! Everyone here says hello to friends and family.

Hi Kim!! We have been listening to the Sound of Music soundtrack- and thought Julie Andrews would like you and the team to “Climb every mountain/ ford every stream/follow every rainbow/‘till you find your dream”- now just imagine me singing that to you with my amazing voice!!! Great job to everybody!!! LKH
