  2. You’re a lot tougher than we are–anyways, the best thing for herpes virus is selenium, so, if you ever go through a larger town with a health food store get the highest amount per capsule and take at least 2/d

  3. Merry Christmas to you both! Now I feel a bit guilty for booking a 2 week hiking trip in Switzerland where I don’t have to carry my backpack. What a lazy bum I am! Seriously, you two are inspiring, and a great reminder how important it is to stay fit!

    1. Best of the season to you and Tonya. So the word is out that there is going to be a ninja gym in Squamish. Are people saying “why didn’t I think of that?” or “ are you crazy?” Whatever the case may be I’m sure it’s going to be a great success. Way to go!

      1. A few people thought about it but that’s not the same as doing something about it. Acting before thinking too much can make a big difference. The general reaction has been a lot of “OMG, my kids are going to wet themselves!”

  5. Great stuff Jim. Love hearing the familiar place names – we had a similar path through that stretch. We crossed then next border crossing north of Hua Hum over Paso Carririne in Parc Lanin – Was very scenic through the park and a very small border crossing on a gravel road into Chile- granted it was a bit of a hill climb up there. Merry Christmas!

    1. We heard that Paso Carririne was even harder than Hua Hum which was washboardy and loose. Border crossing was a nightmare – they confiscated all our dried fruit and our bag of trail mix. We’ve crossed the Chilean border 3x without any concerns about dried fruit. Oh well…..but still, left a bad taste in my mouth!

  6. Soy Ignacio (de la Farmacia) . Un placer haberlos conocido. Según entendí hoy salen para puerto fuy. Cualquier cosa que necesiten o cualquier cosa que pueda ayudarlos, ponganse en contacto, seria un placer ayudarlos. Me hubiera encantado encontrarlos fuera del trabajo para hablar un poco mejor. Les deseo buenas rutas!

  8. Joyeuses fêtes à vous 2! C’est toujours aussi plaisant d’avoir de vos nouvelles et de vous lire. Vos photos sont magnifiques! Lâcher pas! Vous êtes courageux et inspirants! Pour l’herpès buccal, je prends niaouli (huile essentielle) et/ou ColdSore-FX (pommade de propolis). Mettre beaucoup de baume à lèvre ou de la vaseline. Toujours avoir les mains propres. Je vous apprends probablement rien…. On ne sait jamais. Bonne Année 2019: santé, amour et paix!
    Je traduis autant que je peux vos écrits à mes parents. Ils sont contents d’avoir de vos nouvelles. Je suis certaine qu’ils vous diraient qu’ils vous aiment beaucoup et qu’ils vous souhaitent de joyeuses fêtes et une très bonne année 2019.

    1. Merci Nathalie. Tu es tres gentille. Sache que notre site peut etre traduit en Francais. Lise n’a qu’à ouvrir le menu et tout en bas, il y a une offre de traduction. Une fois fait, ils n’auront pas à répéter. Merci aussi pour les suggestions de soin, on essaiera peut-être, mais il semble que l’on s’approche d’une guérison. Ciao.
