Aconcagua

Aconcagua Expedition: The Team Rests at Camp 1

Helloooo everybody,
The team has been very busy today here at Camp 1. It’s hard work napping for several hours, eating as much prosciutto and cheese as we can, and making sure to stay hydrated to boot. Games of cards, iPods, and chit chat fill in our spare time. All of this work is necessary however for our success on the upper mountain. Tomorrow will see us move to a new camp at 18,000’, and we’ll start the acclimatization cycle over again.

The weather has been pretty sunny today with clouds here and there, but our fresh breeze that began last night has encouraged the group to remain in tents for much of the day. We are looking forward to a scrumptious dinner of tortellini, and a good night of sleep. For those that are wondering, cooler temps and the breeze today have resolved our aquatic camping problem, turning our aquarium into a rather exciting skating rink.

Abrazos from Argentina,

RMI Guides Pete, Gilbert, Gabi, and the Aconcagua double A hockey team
