Preparing for Take-off

I have long been under the impression that my dear mother was the epitome of early preparations. The title has been cast into question recently however, as my beloved Jo now proves herself a worthy opponent as a powerhouse of pre-organisation. As I looked upon her assortment of lotions, remedies, and medical supplies (all neatly packed in airline approved containers), I had nothing but admiration. There will be no possible disease, affliction or injury on the journey ahead that this woman does not have a pre-emptive solution for.

The plan for our sub-equatorial South American adventure has been all but finalised. What began months ago as a open itinerary with merely a beginning and end at Santiago, collapsed as the exciting yet stressful months of brainstorming, researching, planning, re-planning & de-planning, revealed that we simply cant do it all in 3 weeks. So, we researched some more, we argued a bit, and we accused each of being more stubborn than the other. BUT, we managed to make agreeable decisions, and in our true Woods-style, we produced a well-honed schedule, tightly packing the best of 3 countries into an even tighter 3 weeks.

Jo- Meticulous Researcher and Class A Bargain Hunter. Undoes her own plans though worrying about what could go wrong. Loves fine-dining, her family and laughing til she cries.
Marty- Believes planning is overrated. Loves his family & food in general.
