Aconcagua Dispatch 1/23/09
Hello Mountain Madness! This is Pablo calling in from camp two. Our team had a great hike to camp three today. It only took the group three and half hours! Everyone is feeling really strong and looking forward to making a Summit attempt soon. Lorna decided to go back down to base camp for health reasons and will wait for the team there. The rest of the team is now in their sleeping bags getting rest for the move that we are going to make tomorrow to camp three. Tonight we made Mexican burritos with fresh veggies! Everyone is happy and healthy.
The weather pattern in the past three days has been interesting: clear skies in the morning with thunderstorms and snow in the afternoon. We will keep this in mind when we make our summit bid and start early to compensate for the weather. All is well here at camp two and we would like to send our love to our friends and family. Ciao!
