Thank you expert proof reader!! Keep up the good work ; )

Do you realise you have climbed the equivalent of Everest 17 times already. Good going and only half way round the world ! xx

Hey guys,

I have finally got around to having a look at your blog. You have some great photos and love how much you get to wild camp.

Chile has been difficult for us to wildcamp because of all the fences everywhere.

Anyway, hope you are well. where abouts are you???

Sorry I should also tell you who this is, Mark & Sanne, we met you in the soggy campground of Malargue! We are now in northern Chile headed for Bolivia in 2 days time.

Take care
