Aconcagua: King & Team Rest Day at Camp 1

The team is wrapping up a successful rest day here at Aconcagua Camp 1, 16,400'. The guides know it was successful because while we know the team was restless and at times lacking for entertainment, no one came over and told us so. Light winds in camp after a gusty night, which left several people sleepless until the calm and warmth of the early afternoon. We took the opportunity to send down trash and items carried up but deemed 'not necessary' for the climb with Mauricio, our Argentine guide. Tonight we will dine on mashed potatoes and cheese burritos while we discuss the weather report and the expedition itinerary. Right now there is a weather window 1/11-13 with light summit winds when compared to days previous. The team continues to stay strong with good appetites and getting sleep where they can!  The evenings have provided spectacular heat lightning across the Vacas Valley as clouds build and are held at bay. We might move up to Camp 2 tomorrow or burn a weather day depending on the wind. Regardless, thanks for following along and eat some fried chicken for us, preferably a Bojangles Cajun Fillet Chicken Biscuit with egg and cheese for those south of the Mason-Dixon Line. RMI Guide Mike King

Happy Birthday Art. What a wonderful memory you will have of this special day.  Enjoy your meal, even without the usual fare of cake and ice cream.
