Postcards from NOLS Patagonia Kayak Section

We finally heard from Phil – on Monday we had two postcards from him! They were dated 2/19 and 2/29 and postmarked 3/3 (12 days to get here). He wrote a lot on those postcards and mentioned that he has lots of stories to tell when he gets back to civilization – here is a summary of his messages:

He’s having a great time. The weather is cold and rainy most every day. They went out for a kayak trip and returned to find their food supply stolen but a fisherman picked up new rations for them a couple of days later. He kayaked 170 nautical miles with dolphins, sea lions and penguins around. He’s been eating well – baking calzones, lasagna, cornbread, cookies….. His last postcard was written in the hold of a 50’ Chilean cargo ship on his way to the overland part of his trip.
