Nickel, Martin and the team shot us a quick text this morning to say they were leaving Mendoza, heading to Penitentes. More packing this afternoon, this time into ‘mule loads’. They’ll spend the night at the ski lodge in Penitentes and then the walking starts tomorrow morning. There’s always a bit of nervous anticipation. You’ve trained, you’ve prepared and now it time to ‘walk the walk’. They’re ready to go.
