Buenos tardes from Aconcagua!  Our team enjoyed a great rest day yesterday and it really paid off today on our move to Camp One. Everyone did a great job pushing these big packs uphill and we are recovering with our afternoon siesta from the day’s labor. Tomorrow we hope to carry higher and begin to position ourselves for an eventual shot at the top. But first thing’s first, time to relax at our new home at over 16,000 feet!

2 years ago today we were skydiving over the ocean in Florida.  Today you are climbing a mountain in Argentina.  Thank you for all the awesome adventures you’ve shared, we’ve shared together and those to come.  I’m very proud of you baby. 143

Looks like the weather is still holding out for your team Steve. Hope you get to summit and get some great views. Take pics if you can. Hike well.

How exciting…We are sitting on our lanai looking out at the ocean in 70 degree weather and cheering you on, Bill and all!!  I learned to standup paddle board…much easier than climbing!!  xx, Shirley and Doug

Congratulations everybody.  News in U.S. is talking about the 9 year old kid who just summited Aconcaqua. Sounds like he had a Sherpa carrying his stuff for him. Bill, we are all cheering you on.  Love you.
