Today’s fly day. Gang got into Mexico City about midday on Saturday and headed straight out for a bit of sightseeing and last minute shopping. Hard to get a ride home from the airport without a few gifts in hand. And, as always, everyone got together for dinner and a chance to make a few toasts and say thanks to one another for being great, supportive teammates and for a job well-done.
To the guides – George Dunn, Mike Haft and Fernando Posada, way to keep everyone safe, help them be as successful as possible and to make sure people had a good time and learned a few things along the way. And to all of our climbers – thanks for being such positive, competent and contributing team members. And, of course, to Mexico – for supplying a great couple of objectives, wonderful people and some very good weather. It all has to come together but it’s sure nice when it does.
Mexico trips are great in that flights aren’t too long and time zone changes are minimal. Makes it easy to do this trip in one work week and get able to hit the ground running at work on Monday morning.
Next Mexico blog dispatches begin in early December when a 3 member private team head down with IMG guide, Greg Vernovage, to get a little sun and cerveza.
