Lucky us!  We had a near windless evening to celebrate the coming New Year.  New Year’s Day found us resolving to make it to Camp 3 in good style and we certainly did. We are slowly finishing up camp building in this rarified air and plan to rest for the remainder of the afternoon.  If this weather holds for another day, we will have a great chance of making the summit maƱana. Wish us some buenas suerte amigos.

Happy 2013 to Beren and Team from Alfred, Lord Tennyson, who encourages you to stay “strong in will/To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”  If the stars are aligned, power on to the summit.

Keep going Josh and team.  You are all amazing. Our prayers for continued good weather and good health are with you.  It was -3F here yesterday morning so we can relate to your environment (sans the rare air).  God bless!

Hola Josh Gentine! Thinking of you! I drove from Santiago to Mendoza on New Year’s Day and passed Aconcagua standing proud amongst beautiful blue bird skies. I waved at you. Wishing you and your team a successful and safe summit and return. -Kendall
