Aconcagua Expedition: Billy Nugent and Team Arrive in Mendoza

First off, a big hello to everyone who’s following along!

The team convened today on the beautiful city of Mendoza a bit tired from a long stretch of travel but no worse for the wear.  Some of us chose to enjoy a late lunch while others chilled poolside for the remainder of the afternoon. The trip did not really begin in earnest until the official team meeting at 6 pm this evening.  After the meeting we had a quick gear check and then headed out on the town for a classic Argentine dinner.  By classic of course I mean beef and malbec wine.  The crew is positive and enthusiastic about the adventure on Aconcagua that lies ahead!  Tomorrow will be a busy day obtaining our permits and tying up loose ends on our way out of town and up to Penitentes where we will stage for an evening before hitting the trail…

That is all for now,
