Pre Race at Ushuaia (Ron Schwebel)

 Wednesday, November 28, 2012
We have had 3 days to look around here in the Southernmost city in the world. Lat 54:47 South. Weather is cool to cold. Max about 10 and yesterday it snowed at sea level in the afternoon. On Monday we ran and climbed to the top of Galcier Martial just out of town. The last 500 m elevation was through snow and quite steep. We got to a pass at 1000 m, which dropped off a sheer cliff the other side. Tuesday was spent filming around town and yesterday, a trip to the national park. It was freezing out there, with a stiff breeze as well. Jess, Roger and I ran back, about 22 km with first 8km was along a single track, next to the lake. Some photo opportunities came up. When the sun came out the views were amazing. We are just packed ready to check out. We head down to town for a briefing and then aboard the MV Plancius for the trip to Actartica. Excitement is building, but somewhat tempered by thoughts of seasickness on the Drake passage. We will be posting daily updates on the ship once the race starts in 3 days.
