Hello, this is Jeff Oderman reporting in for Pandilla de Mostaza from Antisana Base Camp. “Pandilla de Mostaza” roughly translates to “The Mustard Gang”, a story which is too long and not interesting enough to repeat right now.
But the six of us are here for a second night; it’ll be a short night because we’re up at ten. And then going to drive up to ABC (Advanced Base Camp) in the Land Cruisers, from where we will commence our ascent of Antisana, which we’ve been sort of pointing toward for the whole week. So there’s much anticipation and high hope for a successful summit. The weather report is, not to be relied upon, but we’re told it’s potentially significant winds, but doesn’t look like there’s any rain, so we have a good chance at making it.
This is our last night for the six of us to be together, because Raj and Tom will be leaving us, the rest of us, after tomorrow and heading back to Quito. And the four remaining members of our group will be off hopefully for a hot shower and rest before we head to Cotopaxi, our next mountain destination.
Hope everyone on the other end of this call is well and your loved ones hope to see you soon. Bye bye.
