Aconcagua 2014 | Camp 1

Heard from the team. They successfully moved up to Camp 1 today. Due to high winds expected next week, possible summit day has been advanced to this Saturday, two days earlier than planned. Everyone is healthy and doing well.

D-Day!

D-Day has finally arrived. Last night I had the best sleep I’ve had since I’ve left. But that was probably due to the fact last night I got to sleep with a soft, white, snuggly duvet.

Yesterday, driving to our final destination, while some slept I couldn’t for a moment close my eyes. Endless mountains and driving through a never-ending canyon, my eyes wanted to take it all in. My eyes feasted on some of the most beautiful pieces of earth I have ever seen. I am so blessed and grateful to be on this journey!

Today, I start Walking4Air for all those living with Cystic Fibrosis and I walk in memory of my best friend Emma, who through her own courageous fight with this disease, taught me how to live.

I have never been more excited and scared for what lies ahead of all of us.

In a few minutes we’ll be joining our team for breakfast and then at 9:30am Argentinian time we’ll be heading out.

It’s an absolutely beautiful today to begin the journey of a lifetime.

See you all on the other side of the mountain.

As we toasted at dinner two nights ago, here’s to safety and success!
