Aconcagua: Justman & Team Begin Trek to Basecamp

The gang is all here! It certainly has been an adventure already for half of our team. However, we are all ready to go. For the other part of the team we had a great day in Penitentes, which is a small ski area.

We had our first glance of Aconcagua as we took a 4-hour hike up to 10,000 feet. It’s a beautiful view of the south face of Aconcagua. The team finished packing our duffels for the mules and we are ready to walk!

Way to go, Dad (Lew Smith)!  You look great, the weather looks great!  I’m so excited for you!  Climb on!

Looks great.  Still trying to determine sender of your last message from Larry Seaton.  Maybe its Terry and the pox is getting him.  Good luck and God speed.  Don’t come back with the pox.  By the way, the fish are hitting like gangbusters - they’ll probably stop by the time you get back.  Breath deep.

Hi Bissell -

You never told me you were going down there.  It’s a fabulous trip and you’ll love it!  I’ll be following you guys on your journey.  Keep pursuing the high peaks so you can join me on Everest in 2015.
