after our online chat, again, most unexpected, i was pleased to while away a couple hours going over your south america journal, text and pics. you look very good, healthy (thinned out a little, eh?), and seem to be having an excellent time.
you ought to think about reformatting your journal for publication when you get home. i think many people would be interested.
i hope the rest of your trip goes smooth and colorful! by all means, catch me on line again; it was great to chat with you and i really hope to see you in the lower 48 before you head back to alaska.
