Mountain Trip Jan. 23 Aconcagua Team

Our final team for the 2011/12 Aconcagua team is meeting in Mendoza today!  They’ll spend the afternoon checking gear and enjoying a beautiful summer day in Mendoza Argentina.   It’s a beautiful city with sidewalk cafe’s and big city parks every couple of blocks.   They’ll go out for a “welcome dinner” tonight, Mendoza is famous for great wine, and equally great steak, so it’s a meat eaters paradise.

Tomorrow they’ll be picking up their climbing permits and heading for the mountains!

Here’s the Jan. 23rd team:

Steve Emmer.  Colorado

James Hasegawa.  Alaska

Christopher Jentz.  Oregon

Richard Maybank.  Essex, UK

Paul Rudy.   Illinois

Joseph Rudy.  Illinois

Dave Strange.  Wisconsin

John Strange.  Wisconsin

Joe Butler(guide).  Anchorage, Alaska

Jacob Schmitz(guide).  Old Toyota Truck, USA

We’ve got 2 father/son teams climbing Aconcagua together!

We’ll be posting regular updates as well as phone calls from the team as they head up the highest peak in South America over the next couple of weeks.
