Aconcagua 2002!

Dispatch#55 February 18th, 2002.  Aconcagua Base Camp, Argentina. Team High Exposure Hi this is Ellie Henke calling in again from Aconcagua Base Camp, this time for Team High Exposure led by Allen Carbert and Forrest McCarthy.  Talked to them on the radio and they are firmly ensconced at Camp II at Boureasa Col.  The team had a very good carry up to the Col today, everybody is in very good health and re enjoying a reasonably good evening there at the Col.  Tomorrow they're planning on moving up to Camp II at 19,200 feet and after that having another rest day before seriously considering their summit attempt.  Forrest is also passing along a couple of messages from folks:  Dave Mason says Happy Birthday to his Mom, and the other Dave says "Hi to Caitlin and to Heather."  So we're watching the team as they work their way on up the mountain and we should have additional news from them tomorrow.
