BMT 89: Driving the Carretera Austral in Chilean Patagonia

Carretera Austral
Continuing our conversation from the last episode, Ford Quarterman (@wheresthegringo) and I take you on a journey with us back to Patagonia. In December of 2017, we spent three weeks driving the length of the Carretera Austral. In this episode we share stories about this epic experience and give tips for anyone considering trying this mind-blowing road trip for themselves.
