Aconcagua Dispatch 12/29/08
Hello friends and family! I am calling from first camp at 16,400ft. It took our team about five hours from base camp to arrive here, and we will stay at first camp for three days. Tomorrow we will enjoy a rest day and then we will carry to second camp the day after. If the weather allows, we will move to second camp the day after.
The weather is pleasantly clear at this moment, but during the past three days we have had snow showers and thunderstorms in the afternoons. Everyone on the team is doing a great job. All are healthy and happy! Now I must go cook a chicken quesadilla dinner, so please send on our love to our friends and families back home! Cheers!
