On the way to Manuka

Setting off from Ancud, after being looked after very well by James Mussparat, an Australian who has been living in Chile since the early 90s. He is involved in many business ventures, and has a block of land which he has started to clean up. Logging years ago has meant there is no timber left, only regrowth bamboo. Once cleared the land requires lime, and the phosphorus levels tend to be on the low side, but the quality of the soils ensure it is well worth while. There is no doubt that giver the amount of rainfall, the property is capable of growing a massive amount of grass.
Time to once more put all my faith into the GPS, and head to Manuka SA.
