Aconcagua 2002!

Dispatch#16 January 2nd, 2002.  Aconcagua Base Camp, Argentina.  Team II Hi this is Ellie calling in from Aconcagua Base Camp, it's the 2nd of January, 2002.  We haven't had an official cybercast in from Group II, but just to give you an update, they all moved up to Camp II yesterday and generally had a really nice day for moving up, we had sunshine most of the day and I believe they had their camp put up by the time the clouds rolled in as usual, yesterday afternoon.  We even had light snow all the way down here to Base Camp, so I expect that they had a bit of snow up there as well.  Their plan for today, is to move right on up to the Camp III at 19,200 feet, and again I'm sure that that is the highest most of the people in the group have ever been before, so it's going to be a new experience for them.  Hopefully we'll hear from them soon and we'll have a new cybercast from them at that time.  That's it from Aconcagua Base Camp.
