Hello, cybercast listeners! This is Matthew Emht reporting for Aconcagua Team 9, Team Lucky Loco Lucio. Today is January 27th Sunday and the team’s taking a rest day.
We had a pretty nice morning, an incredibly quiet evening with practically no wind at all, which is quite unusual up here. We got to watch some storm clouds come in from the north, late this morning, and we’re getting a little bit of snow now, as predicted. We’re supposed to get four or five inches today and tonight the winds are supposed to pick up a little bit.
But everybody’s hanging out in their tents, enjoying the rest day today. We did a little bit of skill review with the ice axe and crampons and we’re all excited to move up to High Camp tomorrow. The winds are supposed to die down, it’s supposed to clear up and the forecast is for a pretty nice day on the 29th, that’s still our proposed summit date.
Everybody’s doing good. We had a nice scrambled egg breakfast and looking forward to a big pasta dinner tonight. And Danny’s hanging tough, doing a good job out here. Anyway, thanks a lot for listening folks, we’ll keep you posted.
