Jordan, great report and great pictures. I am extremely envious. Also kudos for the trash haul out!

Erroneous, I agree with not litering in the mountains, but, the disc is a bit differant. A signed disc launched from the summit is no differant than leaving dolls, trinkets, flags, scarves or anything else that is left on top of any high peak. And given the fact it is JC, there aren't any other (if there are I don't know and forgive me) that deserve to huck a disc off off Aconcagua than JC. God bless the kid that he was even has the chance to be on top of that mountain after all he has been through!

Namaste

I should re-state.
After reading my last post....they didn't chuck the trash off the carried it off and disposed of it as it should have been before them!

well im glad to hear it was regulation, just tell me it was discraft, because a whammo should never deserve the honor of such a valliant flight, a disc's true dream. I am sure it would have made for quite the pull. :lol:
