Aconcagua Expedition: January 17th team meets in Mendoza

Hello all!

The whole team is finally in Mendoza and assembled! Due to several flight delays, today has been a bit chaotic, as we raced around to get through the park permit registration process, and buy last minute lunch food. In the end, we decided to cool our heels in Mendoza for one more night, rather than push up to Los Penitentes. This will allow us to organize, let a few folks get their first good nights sleep in a few days, and finish up the permits for a few folks.  So it goes on a major international expedition.

Tomorrow, we get back on track, leaving in the late morning for Los Penitentes.  Once there, we will sort gear for the mules, and get ready to begin our trek the next day!

In the meantime, we’re going to enjoy another fantastic dinner in Mendoza.  Best wishes to everybody back home, and we’ll be in touch soon, this time from 9000 feet!

RMI Guides Pete, Leon, Mike, and team
