Looking for our Sea Kayaking Expeditions?

On the Water - TOMORROW!

Just a quick note, but all well here in Pto. Montt.  Yesterday, we passed an extensive equipment inspection by the Navy.  Today was a holiday in Chile, so not much accomplished logistics wise, but Nick did pound a few nails while helping the family here build a playhouse for Perla´s granddaugher Sara.  We have one last appointment with the Navy tomorrow morning and then we hope to begin paddling!  Wish us luck!  The first section of the trip is not too remote, so we should be able to post more soon.  It is going to be wonderful to be on the water!!

Protein anyone?

Hi! Just love the blog. I am glad the "natives" were so helpful and cute! It was so nice to speak with you the other day. I am really glad that you are enjoying your trip. I read about Chaiten in my book which went to press about the time of the first earthquake. What an interesting part of the world. Happy paddling!
Love, Mom/Cathy
