BBQ and propane

Can't hurt to ask. Can I get propane cylinders filled in Chile? I'd like to bring my favorite small grill but it occured to me that I might run into probs getting propane.
Any grillers in the group? How do you grill? Wood, charcoal, propane?
Is this perhaps the dumbest question so far?

Re: Strange Virus - HANTA!

Small world for Hanta. I'm headed to Chile in June from Bozeman, MT. Only yesterday a local woman here died from the Hanta virus. I guess deer mice are well traveled.

Re: Communications, Skype and 3G Tablets

For your "Emergency / Out of range" point: The best option is a USA AT&T SIM that is internationally activated. A former poster recounted to me and I believe here how that was the only way they could make a voice call from the coast to Santiago and text message (nothing voice on any system worked) ...

Re: Communications, Skype and 3G Tablets

What a fun thought experiment this turned out to be. I forgot that asking the right questions can be just as as important as getting the right answers. Thanks to your help, here's what I've come up with: Personal - WiFi 3G Tablet with “regular” Skype installed for video/audio communication with the ...

Re: Communications, Skype and 3G Tablets

A desktop or laptop is a must. Can't get rid of my other brain. I was just trying for a little more mobility with the Tablet, like video skyping with the kids back in US. So the Tablet is more for personal use. For business, I will make/receive an equal amt of voice calls to and from US clients. So ...
