  Activities
  • Trip to Antofagasta to spend time with family and visit Dad's grave
  • Diving lessons before I go so I can go diving when there
  • Train Trip to Chiloe and lots of hiking once there or just quiet time for reflection
  • Blogging, lots of blogging
  • Buy a Cannon SLR camera so I can take tons and tons of pictures and load them directly to blog and/or gallery
  • Contact friends so I can spend time with them
  • Answer the question: Do I want to stay?
  Planning
  • Cost Tickets from SFO and from LAX (LAX seems to be cheaper by about $200) either getting my ass down there or flying out of whatever city I find myself in
  • Find a place to stay (rent from aunt or friend?)
  • Contact the people I want to see
