Aconcagua: JJ, Geoff & Team Arrive in Mendoza

Hello RMI Family! Yes…I know, our first Aconcagua team photo certainly doesn’t look like a mountaineering expedition. But you have to start somewhere. And you might as well start out in style.

The entire team made it into Mendoza with all our mountaineering gear. Today was a busy day for Geoff and I. Between airport pickups we did some food shopping for fresh vegetables, fruit and a little filet mignon.

We had our team meeting where we discussed gear, food and what lies ahead. However, for now…it is time to enjoy Mendoza. The land of spectacular food and amazing wine. Stay tuned and we will continue to provide updates of how much fun we are having.

A friend of mine attempted Aconcagua in his 50s with a group of people and guides.  Some young guys looked at him and complained that they’d probably have to be carrying his stuff near the top.  Near the top, only my friend and one guide were capable of going on.  But they had to turn back, because everyone else was sick or injured. ;-(
