We wake on a beach just outside Puerto Varas and begin picking up the
pieces. Our team is spread around town, having stayed in locals varying
from the beach outside a casino to a nice house in town.
Shaking off not so pleasant feelings due to the nights celebration we
make a plan. One car is headed back to Pucon, and we're now six in one
car. Really we don't even fit in that car. Rain is still not happening
in Pucon, so we'll head to Rio Gol Gol. None of us have done it, but
it's a classic piece of whitewater on the border with Argentina. From
the Gol Gol one car will head to Pucon and drop off two people at the
bus station in Orsono. From there, they'll catch a bus to Bariloche,
Argentina while three of us take the car and all our gear to the same
destination. There we'll rent a second car and make the infamous
to the Rio Baker.
This sums up the how we all feel.

It's a few hours to Rio Gol
Gol on the Chile/Argentina border and on arrival we're too busy to
paddle, enjoying the first
sunlight in two weeks. It's glorious. After taking in some vitamin d
the put in waterfall of the Rio
Gol Gol is calling us. From what reports we've read the normal line is
on river left. It looks like this one must be rather high too, the
river left looks like a nasty hole.
