Aconcagua:  Rest Day at Camp 1

Today is a much deserved rest day, after yesterday’s trip to Guanacos Camp (Camp 2) at 18,000’. The team slept well despite last night’s wind, which wasn’t quite as strong as the night before but was still strong enough to keep the tents flapping and creaking throughout the night. We woke this morning to more beautiful azure skies and golden sun, which quickly warmed the tents and our spirits. We had an impromptu team meeting during our breakfast of oatmeal and cocoa to discuss the upcoming legs of the climb, and everyone is ready to keep moving towards the top! We’re spending the remainder of today indulging in delicious lunch foods and conserving energy for tomorrow’s move to Camp 2.

StokemeterToday’s stoke meter remains high, with an average of 8. Stay tuned for more details as we move higher on the mountain. Cheers!

Nice pictures.  Quick message for John Shadid, ardent Packer fan.  Since you’re out of touch, some breaking good news/bad news on the NFC championship
game against the Bears on Sunday.

Bad news: Aaron Rodgers says he’ll miss the game.
Conflict with a Sarah Palin rally he wants to attend.

Good news: Brett Favre says he’s available and
“stoked” to help the Packers out if needed.

Good luck on the final ascent.  Don’t wear
your cheesehead on Sunday if winds are high.

The gang at work is rooting for you,
Steve
