The tragic news of the earthquake in Chile hit hard with the Gear Junkie crew, which just returned from the country last week. And part of Team Gear Junkie has yet to make it home from the region. Dan, Jason, and Chelsey from Team Gear Junkie stayed to travel and climb in Chile and Argentina after the race. They were awoken by the quake, though the area they were in did not sustain substantial damage. They are safe now and working to find a way home this week.
It is a huge tragedy, and one felt more sharply because of our recent visit to the country. We made so many new friends and fell in love with the country and its people. We have so far heard little word from our friends in Chile. We wait and hope for the best. Chile, stand tough! We hope you are back on your feet soon. —T.C. Worley and Stephen Regenold
