More preparations

The Bradt Carretera Austral guide has been bought. The Chile map has been added to my 10-year old TomTom navigation system, and, somewhat to my surprise, it works.

Preparations are under way

My friend Jack and I will be driving down the partly unpaved, single-lane Carretera Austral (and partly back up again) from January 27, 2017 (flight from Amsterdam to Santiago) through February 14, 2017 (back in Amsterdam). The flight has been booked, the 4x4 has been booked, the accommodations have been booked, some excursions have been booked. The northernmost point is Puerto Montt, where the Carretera Austral starts; the southernmost point is Villa O'Higgins, where the road ends.
