Amazing wild life and scenery. Are you heading for SA soon? Always dreamed of paddling from Patagonia North. Much homework and logistics required. Would appreciate any info you might pick up along the way.
Thanks Jim

Hi Jim,
So awesome, absolutely breath-taking!
Where are you now? Going to the Netherlands soon again?
Hugs for you :)

Hi Lucia!

I am in the Netherlands... Nijmegen in fact... dancing my ass off at El Corte. I owe you a postcard update... Also... I have a travelblog update on my life here pending.

Hi Uncle Jim: Plans for SA are a bit up in the air. If I go maybe you should come join me? How are the ski slopes looking in the PNW so far? I suppose that might make it or break it for you.;)
