I feel weak, and very unmotivated to climb any mountain. There has been a lot of stress as we were still $4000 short to make this possible. Gavin and I have not been able to continue the goal through this stressful period and we have decided to part ways on the 7 summits climbs.
I received an email from Peter Nally at Wright Satellite Connections (http://www.satconnections.co.nz/) here in Wellington to say that they have some on board to sponsor us the use of a satellite phone for the Aconcagua trip!
Training for a mountain climb is a perpetual process that requires a lot of effort but can still remain very fun!
