Groundhog Day here at Aconcagua Camp 2. A windy night and windy day here confirmed our decision to wait a day before moving up. It’s hard to spend two days just hanging in tents though, and the group is psyched to move tomorrow and get closer to our objective. As the forecasts keep coming in (we get pretty OCD as guides right around now) things are looking great for Sunday! Onward and upward,

Hang in there team. Relax! When it is right you will move on and summit when it is time.

Love you Tony and David!

Waiting anxiously to see if tomorrow is the day. Hope all is well and you are strong and healthy. I can’t wait to hear your voice telling me you have made the summit and your on your way home.
