Aconcagua Expedition: Nugent and Team Readying in Mendoza

A hearty hello to everyone out there following along as RMI’s February 1st Aconcagua Expedition gets started. Most of the team trickled in to Mendoza yesterday afternoon and hit the ground running despite being weary from long stretches of airline travel. We held a team meeting followed by a fantastic dinner at one of the local restaurants.  I can assure you that large quantities of beef and wine were consumed as we made our last efforts to pack on a couple pounds before heading onto the mountain. The guides packed group gear late into the night and after a brief nap we rose early to finish up our permitting process and run a few last minute errands. We’re headed for Penitentes this afternoon where we’ll finalize our packing and help ready the mule loads before spending one last night in a bed for a long time. Busy busy!

More to share as our program continues… Stay with us!

RMI Guides Billy Nugent, Garrett Stevens and the rest of the gang.

To get to the most remote places, it takes strength, skill & stamina. What do you do when you get there?  You take pride in the accomplishment, you smile, you savor it, enjoy life and look forward to the darkness of night and revel in the break of day.  I will be spinning my prayer wheels for all of you and will follow your journey through these postings.  -  Beth Behrle
