Rest day at Aconcagua base camp

On the trek to Aconcagua base camp

The team had a rest day at Aconcagua base camp and is preparing to make their first carry up to Camp 1.  Here’s expedition leader, Garrett Madison, with today’s dispatch:

Hello!  This is Garrett checking-in for the Aconcagua expedition.  Today is January 29th and we had a nice rest day here at Plaza de Mulas base camp.  We organized gear today, did our medical checkups with the doctor, and strolled around camp.

We are looking forward to another great day tomorrow.  Our plan is to get up and go for carry to Camp 1 and return to base camp.

Everyone’s doing great and we’re enjoying ourselves here at Aconcagua base camp.
