Holá amigos! We awoke to clear skies and moderate winds again as we had a leisurely morning preparing for our move to Camp 2 (18,000ft).  The team did great navigating gusty winds and heavy packs to push into Camp 2 in phenomenal style. With camp all established, we’ll enjoy a short siesta before firing stoves, eating dinner and looking forward to a rest day tomorrow! All the best from Aconcagua.

Happy New Year Beng Hoe. It is so cool being able to follow the expedition through the blog. All the more so as we are able to see you in the a number of the photos, even if it is the back of your head! It is so beautiful out there. It must be amazing to be spending New Year up there. Miss you. Helen, Laura and Andrew

Hey Steve and team,

I’ll trade you some of your heat for the 18 inches of snow and sub zero wind chills we’re expecting in Boston over the next 24 hours!

Hike well and be safe.

Happy New Year, Bill!  Curious to know how long your beard is now?! Lol!!  And which one are you in that photo above? :)  You at least are enjoying clear, sunny skies, as we are having typical Dec/Jan gray days up north here on Vashon Island, though no real rain. Love getting these updates!

Hi Bill. Spent New Years Eve with Joey here at home.  Fireworks were scaring him so we went to bed early and he got through it OK. I did yard work today. Fixed ham & scalloped potatoes for us tonight. Miss you.  Lots of Love… Norm

Happy New Year, Monica.  Glorious weather here as though May was approaching.
We are thinking of all of you up there, and what a special New Years Day this is.
More power to you!
