My latest adventure is to try and climb Mt Vinson in Antarctica. Two days ago I flew from Seattle to Punta Arenas at the southern end of Chile. Punta Arenas is a port city on the Straights of Magellan and is arguably the southernmost city in the world.

Tomorrow morning I fly on a Russian Ilyushiin 76 cargo jet across the Drake Passage to where we land on the Union Glacier in Antarctica. I get back to Punta Arenas in about two weeks and then I will report on this adventure when I get back
