Aconcagua: Team Arrives in Mendoza

Hola de Argentina…

Well our fearless team assembled in its entirety today to begin our expedition on the mighty mass of stone called Aconcagua.  Haha.  Pete and myself completed all of the pickups at the airport today in three separate trips and were delighted to find that none of the team members were seriously delayed and that all of the luggage has safely arrived.  Mendoza is situated on the plains that approach the Andes, something like 3,000’ of elevation; pretty low and subsequently really hot.  The majority of us spent the day trying to recuperate from long stretches of travel by chilling (or sweating really) poolside at the hotel.  Today was Sunday so most of the businesses were closed. Everything is still on schedule for hitting the trail day after tomorrow.  We all enjoyed some of Argentina’s famous beef and wine this evening at a great parrilla near the hotel.  Everyone is really psyched for the big adventure!  We’ll check in once more before we hit the trail tomorrow evening. 

Ciao,

RMI Guides Billy Nugent, Pete Van Deventer, Geoff Schellens, and the team
