Aconcagua

Aconcagua: Justman and Team Reach Base Camp

Hello Everyone!

Galloping across the Vacas River we had a few team members think we were riding mules the rest of the way to base camp. However, once on drier ground we hopped off, thanked the mules for keeping us dry and began walking up towards Plaza Argentina.

Now at 14000 feet the team has had their fill of fresh melon and juice. Acclimating begins now and the entire team is feeling good, especially after a hot shower and a fresh change of clothes.

Tomorrow we will be resting. A full report of activities will follow. Now, it’s time to set up the volleyball net.

Good looking group.  Special “thumbs up” to you, Greg the barber.  Drink lots of water, kiddo, if you want to overtake my 18500 ellie!  Good luck to all.

Hey Mike (and team), have fun with your volleyball and your day of rest.  Scenery is great and it sounds like the food is awesome.  Uncle Mel
