Wow - what a great trip! I met many new friends on Aconcagua, and had the opportunity to dance briefly on the summit after all.
To Peak Freak
, Tom, Jim and the entire Swedish team: thanks for the comradery and for the wonderful memories during the climb. This was an adventure that I will never forget!
You may be interested to know that I was hospitalized while enroute back from Puenta del Inca to Mendoza. I thought my appendix had burst during the 4 hour bus ride back. Fortunately, it turned out to be kidney stones. It would really have sucked to survive the mountain only to die on the bus ride back. I am safely back home now, on meds and reflecting on what a great trip I had. My thanks and best wishes to all of you...! A special thanks to Eileen who helped me tremendously during my "crisis".
