Argentina Bound

I am going to the clouds. No really, it's something called The Road to the Clouds.

As a guest of Land Rover, I'm one of several journalists who will be flying to Argentina, and embarking on a five day adventure in the mountains of north west Argentina. We drive Land Rover LR3s up 16,000 feet to Pasa Abra Del Acay, one of the highest driveable mountain passes. In big capital letters and smaller italicized ones, it keeps reminding me this is through extreme conditions and is not for the faint hearted.

There will be snow; there will be camping; there will be hostels; there will be one woman journalist. Rumour has it the first question she asked was where she would pee.

So. In anticipation of this quest, I have been hitting the gym again. I returned to the scene of my boxing extravaganza of one year ago (my, how time flies between crazy things!) and I've once again enlisted the help of All Canadian Fitness, and Adam Higson and Ernie Schramayr.

I'll keep you posted, but it's tough to type with shoulders that feel like they've hauled a team of oxen with a hundred pound yoke. That Adam....he just smiles so sweetly right before everything goes black.
