Just a couple of days until I head south to Chile, and the predictable whirl of last minute arrangements is in full swing. I've been busy gathering supplies and equipment, packing my bike and gear and making a round of good-byes to friends and family.
This will be the first winter in more than 40 years that I haven't skied at least once. I had hoped to go this weekend but the plans fell through. Oh well, a small price to pay for the trip of a lifetime!
