¡31 Hours of travel makes Brandon go crazy!

¡Hola, Amigos! I'm finally at the hotel in Ushuaia and it's midnight here, 7 PM on the West Coast. I left the San Diego airport yesterday at noon so I think that makes 31 straight houurs of flying/layovers. Not cool. I don't think I've ever felt this tired after traveling before. The good news is that it's naturally bedtime so I might be able to beat jetlag. Unfortunately, my mom was delayed in Buenos Aires and she doesn't get here until 5 AM. Crazy.

I got our itinerary and it looks ridiculously sick. Tomorrow we're going to Tierra del Fuego National Park in the morning then getting on the boat at 5 PM and setting sail for the end of the earth. I'm going out on a limb but I don't think we'll have Internet access so I'll try to keep a journal and drop a big post on y'all in about 10 days.

I'm wiped out and it's time to hit the hay. Thanks to everyone who responded to the last blog. I would like to talk about things more but I'm too out of it. Regarding alcohol, I've never felt controlled by it and I just felt like stepping back for a bit. It was mostly brought on by going to Seattle for the holidays and getting hammered every night and feeling like crap every day. Then New Year's came and it seemed like a good time to step away from the bottle. Don't worry, booze fans, I'll be back. Regarding blog apathy, I really do appreciate everyone pumping me up to keep it up. I almost deleted that first paragraph when I first posted that entry because I knew it would seem like I was trying to get sympathy or whatever but I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy all those comments.

OK bedtime for real. Until next time...
