Aconcagua Expedition: Justman and Team Ready in Penitentes

Hello RMI fans! It’s JJ and Leah reporting in from Los Penitentes in Argentina! Team 2 is in full effect and we are ready to go.

With all the storms in the U.S. it has been an adventure just to get here. However, we are all excited and raring to go.

We spent the day traveling to the trailhead and organizing and packing gear. The first part of this trip has the support of mules so we packed barrels and duffels full of food, gear. And personal equipment.

Follow along as we hit the dusty trail…Argentina Cowboy style!

Hi Kim!! Would you mind terribly flying back to ATL before you start the major climbing?? Your darling niece Sophia forgot to give you her lucky hermit crab! You better plan on receiving at least 300 comments from us during the next 24 days. Hugs & Kisses from your favorite sister.
