737 Challenge - 21st January 2012
Hi Guys. I know itâ€™s been ages since I have written my blog, time flies and it has been so crazy and busy since I returned in July with talks, appearances and fundraising constantly so apologies for not writing sooner! We will be updating you soon with a newsletter about whatâ€™s been happening the last 6 months and once again thank you for all your support.
I thought I would send updates whilst I am on Aconcagua, just like the old days! Iâ€™m climbing a more technical route on north side of the mountain this time around and using the expedition to test some gear and systems for project ideas further down the line, Iâ€™m amped to be back in Argentina!
After 18 hours of travelling I landed in Chile. I slept well but am gutted as I watched all of Moneyball (film with Brad Pitt) but they turned the TVâ€™s off with 7 minutes to go! Iâ€™ve now arrived in Mendoza after a pretty bumpy flight in over the Andes! Itâ€™s 34 degrees here! First thing firstâ€¦steak and a coke for lunch! Then we are going to be sorting kit.
Speak soon, Rich.
