Adam and Maggie find the Argentine countryside hospitable, right up until it isn't. We talk about the essential difference between 12 and 15mph on a muddy road, the perils of mosquito passengers, and what recovery gear is necessary for extracting oneself from the steep bank of a swamp. Adam punches himself in the groin. Maggie almost makes friends with a skunk.
Maggie and Adam have left Chile! For real this time. As we start our time in Argentina, we reflect back on our favorite moments in Chile, our top recommendations and most importantly: the differences in Chilean and Argentinian meat prep methods. Maggie does a technical corner. Adam has a self care pillow fort. We launch a Patreon!
Adam and Maggie are on the Carretera Austral, Chile's most scenic highway. We talk injuries and inspiration and the dampness that trees bring. Adam gets a little idea that turns into a big project. Maggie finds a new love in wood-burning stoves.
Adam and Maggie are heading north, which means treading on old ground. We talk snow, rental equipment, how we decide between camping and hotels, and of course: meat. Adam's gets into a salami argument. Maggie goes on her first-ever trek in El Chalten. Even Adam gets cold. Pro-tip: Don't ever buy the pineapple orange chicken flavor of backpacking food from Alpine Aire.
