At the southern tip of the Andes Mountains in both Chile and Argentina lies Patagonia – our pit stop on the way to Teirra del Fuego. With caves, glaciers and volcanoes, Patagonia is one of the southern-most destinations on our backpacking itinerary.
Now, we have a survival bracelet dedicated to this amazing place! This accessory cord bracelet doesn’t just look cool, it can unravel to yield up to 10 feet of utility cord if you find yourself in a jam and it won’t shrink or rot when wet.
With each purchase, you not only get sweet gear but you’re helping us fund our trip around the world.

This weekend, we decided to channel our inner Aron Ralston (see previous post about the film 127 Hours) and try some indoor rock climbing. Neither of us has climbed in about 10 years, so this was a fun adventure! September found some great coupons online (at groupon.com) for discounted starter packages that gave us lessons in tying climbing knots, belaying and a full day of unlimited climbing at Planet Rock (planet-rock.com) here in Michigan.
Even though we’re both very sore today, we had an awesome time! Check out this link to find yourself a local climbing gym so you an enjoy this sweet sport too!:
