On our recent trip to Patagonia, we tried something different. Knowing in advance that we were going meet many fellow trekkers and others on this unique trip, we wanted to come up with something to leave behind to make an impression. So we had custom Arctic Brotherhood lapel pins designed and made. Anytime we met someone we liked, we bestowed upon them an honorary membership and gave them a pin. It was a huge success and everyone loved it. Unfortunately, we couldn’t remember everyone’s names but we did get photos of each.
New friends from Austria. We camped next to them at Poincenot and ran into them again in El Chalten
Ricardo. Our driver and tour guide to the Perito Moreno Glacier. We made him an honorary brother and convinced him to give us his Mate gourd & straw (actually we paid him handsomely for it).
Maria Barcello was our wonderful tour guide in Buenos A
We met Denis & Milo from The Netherlands on our van ride back to El Calafate. We later ran into them at the airport. They were on our plane back to Buenos Aires
These are our new best friends from Australia, and we didn’t get their names. We met this nice family on the van ride to El Chalten and ended up running into them again 5 times, including on the trail, in El Calafate at a cafe and finally at the Perito Moreno Glacier.
These are our new Danish friends we met on the trail back from Laguna Los Tres when we stopped to take a break and smoke cigars.
