Tomorrow, Saturday, we will depart Punta Arenas on a public bus and drive northwards to Natales where we will overnight before continuing to El Calafate to spend a few days waiting for a replacement truck. Odyssey have hired a overland truck from a company that went out of business a couple of years ago.

In the meantime somebody from Odyssey will fly out here, hopefully the end of next week, with a new pump. If luck is with us we might have Ithaca, our Odyssey truck, back in a few weeks. As with any ongoing plan things can change but in the meantime I am looking forward to returning to El Calafate and my favourite restaurant. Will try and get some picts this time around.
