Aconcagua 2002!

Dispatch#23 January 14th, 2002.  Aconcagua Base Camp, Argentina. Team Canusa Hi cybercasters, this is Matt Szundy and Allen Carbert reporting from Base Camp on Aconcagua.  Today, Monday the 14th, our team Canusa, carried to Camp I at 16,200 feet in very good style, we did it round trip in seven hours.  The Relenchos Glacier has changed considerably in the past few years, making our journey interesting and varied.  Everybody was whooped after after our difficult day, but after a great pesto pasta dinner there was still enough energy for a late night game of hearts.  The Canadians won.  I confirmed my career decision as a mountain guide as opposed to being a card shark, by losing miserably. Allen observed.  The weather has been stellar, we've been wearing shorts here at Base Camp and the wind has been a gentle breeze.  We look forward to a rest day tomorrow and Allen will touch base then.  So for now this is Matt Szundy at Aconcagua Base Camp reporting in.
