Pure and Simple Patagonia

Posted by IMVoice Apr 5, 2010

A pretty calm Holiday Weekend with only 3 reports.

 

In the beginning of March, CHRIS BOHNERT (who is getting married this Friday to Tara Kincaid), BRET HARRIS and ex-Active-ite (and current Baltimore Raven) MARQUES CHARBONNET embarked on a week-long trek to Patagonia’s Torres Del Paine in Chile.  We took 4 days to hike the infamous “W” trail, averaging roughly 27km per day.   After battling through torrential wind gusts, ancient glaciers, numerous Guanaca (Llamas), wild Flamingos, and the occasional nude Argentinean posing on the mountain top, we were able to cap off our adventures with a sunrise climb to the viewing point of the Torres.  Definitely the trip of a lifetime!  We also later survived the “Superclassico” in Buenos Aires, which is an infamous soccer match between Boca Jr. & cross-town rival River Plate!

NICOLE PELLEY, (Business Analyst) and SIJEN OLTHOF (Sr. Implementation Analyst) went on a 50 mi/80 km training ride around the Snohomish River Valley.  This is in preparation for the Seattle to Portland ride later this summer. 

MICHELE CREPEAU ran the Scotland 10K Run in Central Park NY with friends.  Kilts, bagpipes and lots of plaid!  A wee bit toasty weather wise!
