Aconcagua: Justman & Team Return to Base Camp

Elevation: 13,800'

We have arrived! Ahhh, it feels so good to be back at Base Camp! Let me tell ya, this team has faced some enormous adversity. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to scare friends and family because this Wisconsin boy has faced worse weather watching the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field in December. The weather on this expedition has flip flopped from beautiful to not so beautiful. And wouldn’t you know it, the weather followed us down to base camp. However, it doesn’t matter now. We’ve enjoyed pizzas, fresh fruit and coca colas. And we all deserve it! Everyone says hello and we are looking forward to our trek out.

This is our last dispatch for this season’s Aconcagua expeditions. Thank you so much for following along and thanks for all the comments!

Jeff…What’s up brother?  You should explain that while in Green Bay the best way to stay warm is to have a couple of drinks!  Kids say hi.  Hope all is well.
