Sailing, hiking, climbing – true adventure
I first mentioned 180˚ South almost a year and a half ago. The film, which documents a young man’s trip to Patagonia, includes all the makings of a real adventure. While searching for something completely unrelated on Youtube, I came across a couple of links for the entire movie, and that surprised me, but I have to imagine that they are legit as Youtube is way too good at removing copyrighted materiel. So, for your viewing pleasure, I include the video here. Take note that you can also stream an HD version from Amazon for about a buck.
Our activities the last couple of days have been quite a bit less adventurous than the movie, but still busy. We broke our “no working on Sunday” rule by spending the majority of the day organizing the last remaining bits of our stuff, and stripping Frost of most of her canvas. As this is the first time we have had to do that job on this boat, there was a bit of a learning curve that we needed to overcome, trying to figure out the best way to flake the sails, etc. Even figuring out how to remove the battens on the mainsail was a bit of a puzzle, but we got it done. As always, work first, adventure later.
By the way, if you haven’t already done so, be sure to check out Rebecca’s latest blog post which includes tips on how to safely exercise in less-than-ideal weather conditions. Her ability to conjure up squalls out of nowhere is near magical, so she gets plenty of practice at exercising in the rain!
