The Mountain Trip December 19th Aconcagua expedition met in Mendoza today and are looking forward to heading up into the Andes tomorrow. A few of the team members had some travel challenges, and there was one bag that never made it to Mendoza, but after a bit of scrambling around to the local gear shops they’ve all got their gear and they are ready to go.
Mendoza is a beautiful town, and known for great food and wine. The team spent the afternoon checking out gear and making last minute preparations, then went to a fabulous team dinner at “La Barra”.
Let’s introduce the team:
Shlomo Wasser. Sunnyvale, California
Yasushi Yamauchi. Tokyo, Japan
Nick Bailey. Surrey, United Kingdom
Hideko Yamamoto. New South Wales, Australia
Zack Johnson (Guide). Anchorage, Alaska
Here are a few of the early trip highlights, featuring steak and wine.
