Choosing what to bring
.Deciding what to bring for five weeks in Chile and Argentina has not been easy. We are looking forward to summer in South America, which brings heat to Santiago and Buenos Aires, while still staying chilly down in the southernmost part of the continent. We also need to combine urban life with the outdoors. The weather in Patagonia is known to be unpredictable. With strong winds, rain, or snow. We are planning to do quite a bit of camping and hiking, which adds a lot of weight and volume to our packs. While its possible to rent gear, we wanted a chance to use what we already own. We can also be more flexible, camping if we find a good trail, or want to save some money on lodging.
