Patagonia Race Map Preview

For all the maps geeks out there like me — or if you just want a peek at the navigational insanity that is the Wenger Patagonian Expedition Race — I offer these two big, beautiful satellite map samples. The first file below is an overview map from last year’s race. The second map is a close-up view. This is what Team Gear Junkie will be staring at throughout the depths of it this February. Gorgeous stuff!

1:200,000!!! So much for the standard issue 1:24,000 scale maps we are accustomed to in adventure racing here in the US! Any plans/ideas on how to be successful in adapting to the new scale and color/image scheme used on these maps?

Something like 1:24,000 scale isn’t available for this part of the world. The maps and navigation are a different animal on this race, from what I understand. Hope most of the nav decisions are macro ones (this valley or that one) instead of trying to find a spur or reentrant, etc. It should be interesting. . .
