ive graduated from university in April 2008 with a B Sc. in Geography. Ive been living in Churchill, Manitoba since then working as a research assistant at the Churchill Northern Studies Center. I worked on a hydrology study and a National Historic Site at York Factory, Manitoba. I am planning a two person, six month trek beginning at the start of February 2009. The plan is to land in Bueno Aires, then progress south to the southern tip of the continent and up through Chile and Peru. We plan on ending our trip in Ecuador and heading back to Canada once the money runs out.
