Re: Kodkod / güiña cat, coolest animal encounter yet.

If they weren’t so tiny I would think twice about standing in front of one, I think as they are not strictly nocturnal they have watched people from cover and aren’t impressed by us. They also go up a tree like a squirrel so they are probably comfortable in forested areas......

Re: Kodkod / güiña cat, coolest animal encounter yet.

You will probably see it again, we had a regular visitor years ago down on the rio negro, it would sun on a concrete pad in front of our office, I must admit we use to leave fish out for it, I don’t think it was a normal part of their diet but it came around regularly so we where part of it hunting ...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

The frigen Minsal, and the university of chile, plus a pile of other talking heads were representing this as a full phase lll trial. just more PR bullshit. My take on this, sinovac vaccine will not kill you, it seems to do something, but untill there is more real data, don't depend on it for protec...

Re: The Big Patagonia Resettlement Idea

Example: Agro project done in a boat only access site in north coastal BC cost 40% of the exact same development done in Patagonia, and the Patagonian site had road access for heavy equipment and trucks...... Much of the primary crew for both projects were the same, the Chilean project had twice as ...

Re: The Big Patagonia Resettlement Idea

...Modern living is not freedom. Living as God created us to live -- collaboratively and off the land -- that is true freedom... Living as God created us to live would prohibit the use of the Internet and laptops to communicate here ("modern life"). Otherwise, the Internet and laptops are just an o...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

I think it is too early to tell. The vaccination process only really kicked off in February, but since then it has been advancing really fast. I would hope we will start seeing positive results in April. Fingers crossed Also keep in mind that the death rates are often delayed, so could be people wh...

Re: The Big Patagonia Resettlement Idea

Another cynical response. You want a piece of Chile for yourself but don't want anyone else there to turn it into a mess. But the truth is, modern living is a mess. Patagonia is going to be an international place with many collaborations with Chileans. It's the 21st century, plenty of sustainable b...

For thousands of 20 somethings, they will starve the first winter, most won’t eat meat.....I think this is more wishful...

Re: Buying and Selling Real Estate in Chile, DON'T DO THIS!!!

In Canada an attorney is a notary, but you need a certificate of good standing from the Law Society dated the same day as the document to show he was a notary that day.......easier to do it all at the Chilean Consulate with the Chilean Consul who is a nice guy, the visit is usually late morning and...
