February 14th, 2002. Aconcagua Base Camp,
Argentina. Team VI, Team High Exposure Hello
cyberfans this is Allen Carbert working with ace
mountain guide Forrest McCarthy leading Team High
Exposure up Mount Aconcagua. We had a great
trek in up the Vacas Valley and had good weather.
We chose to take an alternative high route up the
Relenchos Valley to avoid some river crossings and
thus chose our expedition team name, High Exposure.
Today we are at Base Camp acclimatizing and enjoying
a a day of rest. Tomorrow we'll update you on
our carry to Camp I and we're also very pleased to
find out today that Willi Prittie will be assisting
our efforts on the mountain.
for now, this is Tom, Dave, Donna, Alex, Takao, the
other Dave, Tobias, Mike and Felix, Forrest and
Allen of Team High Exposure saying stay tuned and
Happy Valentine's Day!
