Where Am I Now?

You have probably noticed that I am not very current in the posting of photos and commentary.  As I get farther south it gets harder to access good internet that I need to keep this blog updated.  It will be updated soon, I hope.  There are many incredible things to review.

As I write this I am at the end of the world, in Ushuaia, Argentina.  It is mid-summer, the high today will be 51 degrees with a 20 kt wind and intermittent heavy rain.  Last night it was down in the 30s.  I can’t wait to head north again where it should be warmer and then head over the Andes into Chile and the Carretera Austral.

This is as far south as you can drive on this planet.

I have provided the following link to my Spotwalla page that shows my last reported position and trip history on Google maps.  It is not real time, but should be updated frequently.

The farther I get south the less my “SPOT” satellite locator is able to see its communication satellites.  I sent over 10 transmissions from here and only one actually worked.  It is pretty worthless at these latitudes.  I know from experience it will start working reliably again once I leave Tierra del Fuego, a couple of hundred miles north.

Photo of Lapatia Bay, the small opening in the center of the frame opens to the Beagle Channel.  The channel separates the larger main island of Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego from various smaller islands of the archipelago.  Darwin had his first sight of glaciers when he reached the channel in 1833, and wrote in his field notebook “It is scarcely possible to imagine anything more beautiful”.
