Blog Update 3/2/2016

Have arrived back in the US to a cold Michigan winter. Santiago was summer at its best, warm, sunny and dry. Further south in Punta Arenas (Strait of Magellan) was height of summer but cold, rainy at times and windy. Folks on the street were typically dressed for cold and wet conditions.

Now time to reflect back on what I have learned in Chile and to follow up on Armada communication to keep the permit process and the search for my three navy friends on track.

I will be posting my boat launch and sea trial plan here later today.

Here are a few photos from our experience together in no particular order. I plan to organize photos and will post more with brief descriptions.
