The GPT is an unofficial network of trails, dirt roads, cross country routes, rivers, lakes, and fjords spanning 3,000 kilometers from Santiago, Chile to El Chalten, Argentina. It is both a cultural and wilderness experience. Via foot and packraft, I completed Sections 16-40. Challenges included wind, rain, cold, hot, remoteness, difficult fords, navigation, and isolation. The GPT was a wilder, more remote experience, and my most demanding adventure to date.
