Great pics and great stories. I look forward to heading south later in the year when I come back to SA. Epic shots of your hiking in Patagonia as well as your pics of the Carretera Austral. Looks inviting. It will be interesting to see what the future brings.
I mean it when I say I will build a bitchin' BBQ like Mario's in El Salvador for you once you get situated. You will be the asado king wherever you live. I can see it now.
I'll be in Oregon this summer and will hunt you down like a wild animal if you're in the area.
Currently listening to the crack of lightening and the thundering roar of a thunderstorm in Medellin that reminds me of Nebraska in the spring.
