“Isla Navarino experienced a 952 Mb low, bringing us knee-deep, low-density snow. The inlet around us is frozen and we are digging ourselves out to reduce the condensation inside. James has been hauling water (as the pipes at the Micalvi marina are now going on week 4 of being frozen) & diesel (for the Ebersp├Ącher which is now running 24/7).

Quite the sight as he’s carrying the jugs strapped like saddle bags across the top bar of a mountain bike back to the boat along the snow packed road. Two out of three kids are sick and they have been stuck unwillingly inside the Anasazi Girl igloo, so it has been a bit “wild” to say the least.” – Somira Sao.
