Aconcagua: At Basecamp

Hey gang, this is Billy checking in with Geoff and Pete here. We’re giving you guys a call from basecamp, Plaza Argentina, after a successful summit attempt yesterday. We spent a good part of the day today walking down from high camp at Plaza Cholera all the way down here to basecamp, just under 14,000 feet. Everybody is a great mood. We enjoyed an awesome meal of mashed potatoes and roasted chicken, courtesy of the great folks at Grajales, our outfitter. Right now we are just getting all of our mule loads prepared for the long walk to the road tomorrow. And should actually take all day tomorrow and a half of the next day before we’re back to civilization. For all those you that are following along, this might be the last you’ll hear of us until we’re back to Mendoza. And thanks for following along. And we’ll talk to you all soon. Ciao.

Congrats to everyone!

The walk out to the road is long, but the Malbec is calling you from Mendoza.  Enjoy the rest of your time in Argentina!
