Planning for Patagonia: Stage #1

I figured, with the first six months down, it’s time to start planning for the grand finale.  The trip to the edge of the world; Patagonia.

Here are the things I need to figure out and start planning:

  • Cost of flights for two?  Where do I need to fly into?
  • Cost of transportation to trailhead?
  • Any gear I need, should it be bought here in the states and flown down, or in Argentina/Chile?
  • What is a reasonable amount to expect to spend per day while in Patagonia?
  • What hike/hikes do I want to complete and how much time is necessary to complete them?
  • Classes/Education:  Depending on what summits we decide to take on, technical training is likely going to be needed.  Define what that consists of and the costs involved.

Besides those things, I think I am ready to go right now! 😃

Also, I started a GoFundMe:

If you would care to help get me to Patagonia and be part of helping this quest come to an end, I greatly appreciate any assistance.


Cheers 🤙 ,
