Aconcagua: King & Team Arrive in Mendoza, Travel to Penitentes

The Team arrived over the last few days with most bags in tow and we are now in Penitentes. We took the afternoon to pack and sort gear for the mules and our trek to Aconcagua Base Camp. The warehouse is at the base of a defunct ski hill and looks like something out of the Argentine version of Hot tub time machine. We have a great local logistics company in Grajales Expeditions to help us get our gear through the high Andean desert valleys that we will hike through during the next three days. The Team is doing well and excited to get walking tomorrow. We will be checking in each day, fingers crossed for clear weather and light winds. Thanks for following along. RMI Guide Mike King

Excited to follow along! Rowe and Cedar are doing a whole lesson on South America at preschool so it was fun to show them on the map they brought home where Slamma and George are and what they’re doing. Rowe got tested for whooping cough on Friday (as if I needed more reason to hate anti-vaxers) so we’ve been quarantined all weekend. Thank goodness for legos and the polar express! Oh and IU beat Butler. Go S&G!! Love, the Chartbigs
