Aconcagua Team Four in Mendoza

This is Brien writing in with Aconcagua Team 4. Everyone has arrived in Mendoza with no missing bags. We checked over gear and had a group meeting and talked about the upcoming group trip. We then had a wonderful welcome dinner at the restaurant La Florencia and headed back to the Sheraton. We will meet at 8am tomorrow to change money and purchase climbing permits and plan to depart for Aconcagua about mid morning to head to the Hotel Ayelen at Penitentes which is close to the starting point for our trek into basecamp. Everyone is in good spirits and excited to get started.
