Aconcagua: Another Weather Day
Howdy gang, we are up here at Chopper Camp. We are experiencing 30 mph winds, about 30 feet visibility, sometimes less and plenty of blowing snow to boot. We are starting to feel like we’re in the middle of an Alaskan storm here. A little bit worse cause we’re so close to our objective.
Me and the guides have been jammin’ reggae and blues in the tent to try to channel some southern or tropical vibes and overcome this lousy storm. But the forecast actually calls for the squall to blow itself out tonight and if that’s the case we’re going, the whole team will head up tomorrow to Cholera Camp tomorrow. And then may take a crack at the summit on Valentine’s Day. But right now, Pete says the stoke meter is currently at 1 ½, so please send us your happy, positive, and tropical weather vibes, down here in South America.
We miss you all. Wish us luck.
