I'm now sat back in Pucon, having given the truck back to the rental agency, bought my bus ticket back to Santiago and sold my boat - our time in Chile is almost over. We've just spent the last week travelling south, returning to the Fuy and Llancahue and adding the Petrohue to our list of rivers.
Stu boofs the final drop on the upper Fuy.
In the last 7 weeks we've paddled most of the classics around Pucon, travelled north to the Claro and south to the Fuy, and driven through Argentina to spend Christmas at the Futaleufu. Here's a quick selection from the trip.

We've just returned to Pucon to celebrate the New Year after a week at the Futaleufu. I've not had a chance to sort out the photos from the Futa yet, so here's another from our trip to the Claro. With just a week left until we fly home, we're about to head south for a final few Rios.
