    Puyehue - A TR in hashtag form, with translation

    Prologue:

    During our trip to SA this year I enjoyed a lot of social media stoke, particularly five million different angles of someone skiing the super C in Portillo. However, it can be difficult to correctly understand the forcibly abbreviated form of storytelling that happens on instagram. I'd like to use our trip to Puyehue to provide an annotated guide for the interpretation of hashtags for anyone facing a similar struggle. Note that you obviously don't want to post that many pictures at once, I'm just doing it to demonstrate appropriate use of short captions and hashtags. Normally you would post one or two a day for as long as possible, you can let your fans know with a status like so: 'Good to be back home but I'm excited to keep sharing images of our latest expedition with you all <3 '
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    Stoked to return to Puyehue with a stellar crew! Park entry sure has gotten expensive since the filmcrews stopped by. #adventure #skitheandes #humanpoweredadventure #neverstopexploring #adventurealways #noshortcuts #getoutstayout #outdoorculture @downskis @pieps

    We are going to ski Puyehue volcano, which is that volcano with the big crater that was in All I Can and that one Salomon Freeski TV episode. I want you to know that not only have I been here before, I was here before those movies came out and everyone heard about this place. I am that cool. Someone gave me some free gear so now I will tag them in every picture I ever take.


    Beautiful afternoon for a hike! #beautyofnature #insta_animals #dusk #wanderlust #skitheandes @downskis @pieps

    I took a picture of a cow.


    No pain no gain! Feels good to work the muscles. #strong #training #trail #humanpoweredadventure #earnyourturns #neverstopexploring #adventurealways #noshortcuts #getoutstayout #outdoorculture @downskis @pieps

    The hike up to the hut sucks and this trail sucks and I hate carrying my skis. I'm also kind of bitter because those guys in the movies had horses for this.


    Views for days! Love the evening light. #blessed #liveauthentic #sunset #mountainview #mountainculture #mountain #skitheandes #volcano

    Fuck it's getting dark. Hurry up or we wont find the fucking hut. Fuck this fucking backpack.


    Moments like these... <3 #adventure #blessed #earnyourturns #friends #humanpoweredadventure #liveauthentic #livesimply #skitheandes

    Thank god, we made it just in time, I can see the hut. (Last time we didn't find it in the dark and bivvied in the meadow, 100 meters next to the hut.) I think I'm going to collapse now.
    Oh hey, that's a neat sunset.



    Dinnertime with @foodforadventure! Foto @freak #cabinlife #hutlife #livesimply #liveauthentic #adventure #skitheandes #friends #mountainhouse #trainmeaneatclean

    We are so rad that we got a shop to give us a few freeze-dried meals. That makes this a legit expedition. We told them we'd take some pictures of authentic outdoor living that they can put on their facebook. We forgot to take the toilet paper out of the shot.

    The Veg and Rice Curry was pretty good.



    You are the sum of your choices. It feels good to wake up far away from civilization, with only your best friends and the mighty presence of mother nature to keep you company and continuously inspire you. Life is for living. crap diem. #howdidigethere #outthere #keepitwild #blessed #liveauthentic #skitheandes #adventurealways #humanpoweredadventure #earnyourturns

    Couldn't think of a good caption for this. I'm happy I don't work a 9 to 5 job with a shitty commute so I'll be vaguely smug about how centered and connected to nature I am because of my lifestyle choices.

    Oh crap, fucking auto correct. How do you edit instagram captions?



    Love the sound of skins gliding along, so peaceful! #skitheandes #adventurealways #humanpoweredadventure #earnyourturns #skitouring #backcountry

    This is a really flat volcano.


    It's not always easy but once you're on top you forget the struggle. Stay true to your dreams! #perseverance #lovenature #humanpowered #getoutstayout #skitheandes #adventurealways #humanpoweredadventure #earnyourturns

    This actually was pretty easy, and flat. Are you inspired yet?


    Scoping lines, about to drop into the crater! UNREAL! #amazing #crater #steepskiing #skitheandes #shred #shredpow #powder #humanpoweredadventure #earnyourturns

    I'm sure everyone who comes here takes this picture. Damn pretty place. Shame the snow is completely bulletproof, we're definitely not skiing that stuff in the background.


    While the boys had a @foodforadventure lunch, the chicas did an impromptu partner yoga sesh in the volcano. Glad to have @friend along for sillyness like this and girltalk! Pic: @freak #mountaingirls #yogagirls #outdoorwomen #radwomen

    Did you realize I am a woman? I am a woman. My friend is also a woman. We did this because we knew it would look cool.



    Challenges are the spice of life! Sometimes it's good to scare yourself a little, you might be surprised what you are capable of! Pic: @freak #mountaingirls #radgirls #radwomen #outdoorwomen #alpinebabes #steepskiing #humanpoweredadventure #earnyourturns #radgirlslife #radgirlscollective #radgirlsclub

    Wow, that last post got a ton of likes. I should use more hashtags that tell people I am a woman. The snow really sucked but we tried to ski anyway after taking a million pictures of everyone hanging out in the crater.

    We got to shred pow inside a volcano!! How crazy is that? Pic: @freak #powder #shred #skigirls #mountaingirls #radgirls #radwomen #outdoorwomen #alpinebabes #radgirlslife #radgirlscollective #radgirlsclub

    This was not powder. You can see my tracks because I scraped some ice off more ice.


    @roberteberli killed it! Slaying pow inside a volcano, incredible experience! #shred #pow #gnar #spine #freshtracks #epic

    This was also not powder. Glad we were shooting photos and not film, snow was largely really terrible. Three of us went skiing, two stayed at the bottom of the crater, chilling in the sun. Probably the better choice.


    Making our way back out of the crater, tired but stoked after slaying amazing powder spines! #shred #pow #gnar #spine #freshtracks #epic #earnyourturns #humanpoweredadventure

    Making our way out of the crater, tired but stoked because it was pretty fun even though the snow sucked.

    Have you noticed how we manage these incredible feats without the use of helicopters or snowmobiles? Thats what the humanpoweredadventure hashtag is for.



    @marius slashes a high speed pow turn above the hut, gotta love volcano skiing! #shred #pow #gnar #spine #freshtracks #epic #earnyourturns #humanpoweredadventure

    Surprisingly good snow in a zone of about 50 vertical meters on the way back to the hut. That is not a spine. I'm kind of getting tired of this and my hashtags are uninspired here.


    Chilling in the sun looking back up at the incredible peak we just skied, about to settle down for another cozy night in the cabin. What more do you need? #simplepleasures #liveauthentic #livesimply #hutlife #cabinlife #keepitwild #outthere

    That was fun but a shower would be nice right now.


    Witnessed a magnificent bird of prey have dinner from the front door of the hut, incredible experience!! Nature is so beautiful, really shows you how the circle of life is all around us! #wildlife #beautyofnature #wildlifephotography #blessed #bird #circleoflife

    There was a group here a couple of days before us and they left a bunch of weird food. There was a big chunk of slimy, rotting sausage and we threw it out. The bird ate it.


    Another great dinner, love the variety of @foodforadventure! #simplepleasures #liveauthentic #livesimply #hutlife #cabinlife #keepitwild #outthere

    I hope the guy gives us some more freeze dried food, that stuff is expensive. Can someone take the toilet paper off the table already?!


    Epic sunset to see us off, I'll post a little series! #sunset #alpenglow #epic #mountainview #amazing #blessed

    Epic sunset to see us off, second version! #sunset #alpenglow #epic #mountainview #amazing #blessed

    Epic sunset to see us off, third version! #sunset #alpenglow #epic #mountainview #amazing #blessed

    That was a pretty cool sunset.

    Love the photos.

    Still think hashtags are annoying. Maybe I'll try one out one day.

    The real deal is always better than the vamped up, overblown story that glosses over the more interesting details. We all love perfect weather and conditions but some of my best memories are from days that didn't go exactly as planned. Thanks for the great TR as always.

    Not a single selfie ! What kind of TR doesn't have a selfie in this day and age?





    Nice TR, I've got to get back to South America.
