Aconcagua 2002!

Dispatch#24 January 15th, 2002.  Aconcagua Base Camp, Argentina. Team Canusa Hello friends family and followers of the Canusa expedition, led by Allen Carbert and Matt Szundy on the mountain Aconcagua.  I'm calling in from base camp today, we just made preparations to move high up on the mountain to Camp I at 16,200 feet.  Yesterday we enjoyed a wonderful rest day, we did some chores, lounged about, reading, napping and acclimatizing.  In the evening hours during diner we were surprised to see four to five inches of snowfall, and Lhakpa walked in to the Base Camp tent from his 30 mile hike all in one day, a little wet and a little covered with snow.  At any rate, we're having a good time on the mountain. the group is highly motivated and we're looking forward to a successful expedition.  We're going to report from Camp I later on tonight, and Ellie will report in with and information and exciting news at that time.  So for now this is Allen Carbert working with Mat Szundy from Aconcagua stay tuned for more excitement and information as we progress up the mountain.
