Aconcagua Expedition: The Team Moves to Camp 1

Today we made our first big move up the mountain as we left basecamp and have settled in atAconagua’s Camp 1. Despite a couple hiccups (negotiating with some Russians over tent platforms, some minor blisters, and acquainting ourselves with the bio-bag human waste system) today’s move was the smoothest I’ve seen. The guys are all in great spirits after having a great meal and a hot drink before crawling in for the night. We hope to take advantage of more good weather forecasted for tomorrow by pushing another carry up to our Camp 2, also know as Chopper Camp.

We’ll check in again tomorrow evening,

Freed and Bruce… I see Katie has already informed you, but just wait until you see the highlight.  absolutely unbelievable.

Keep up the strong climb.  Can’t wait to talk to you when you get back.

Glad that you all arrived safely to base camp! Looking forward to reading the other dispatches from the trip.

I just wanted to everyone know—especially because there are 2 Duke Alumnae in the group—that Duke just beat UNC 85-84!!!!!!!! UNC accidentally deflected Duke’s shot into the basket (trying to rebound) which brought the score to 83-82. Then Austin Rivers made a 3 pointer with .1 seconds left on the time clock. GTHCGTH!
