"Conquerors of the useless"

This term is from the film 180 South. Jennie and I just watched it, as a reprieve from packing, and thoroughly enjoyed the cinematography and the story (message). It's about a guy who follows in the footsteps of a few climber/adventurers in the 60's to climb a peak in Patagonia. He sails to Chile from Mexico, and hitches a ride on a fishing boat to a conservation area set up by these climbers from the 60's who are now 70. Along the way the stories evolves from one of personal achievement to a lesson in humanity. I would recommend it for any of you who have an inclination to get out there into the great outdoors and do some reflecting.

There is a site associated with the movie at www.180south.com.
