Aconcagua 2002!

Dispatch#51 February 17th, 2002.  Aconcagua Base Camp, Argentina. Team High Exposure Hi this is Ellie Henke calling in from Aconcagua Base Camp for Team High Exposure led by Allen Carbert and Forrest McCarthy.  It's February 17th, and the team is finally on their way up the mountain after getting a rough start out of Base Camp yesterday morning.  Tom had to leave the expedition with a lung problem but he is now down safe and is doing okay.  Yesterday they continued with their move up to Camp I and they spent the night last night at Camp I, and today their plan is to carry their gear on up to Camp II and do a cache there before returning back to Camp I to sleep tonight and tomorrow they'll be moving for real up to Camp II.  So we'll keep you posted as team High Exposure moves up the mountain and we wish them well.
