After our hike out we had planned to camp at a private spot at the trailhead. When we got there, noone was there. Two locals told us the owner was in the hospital in Puerto Montt - we had just talked to him on Boxing Day on our way in! We took a rest and then hiked out to the main dirt road, 6 km, and then started the hike into Cochamo village another few kilometers up the road. On the way, a lovely woman in a pick up truck stopped and offered us a ride. We gladly accepted after more than 6 hours of hiking :)
She did not want any money for the service and dropped us off at her brother´s camp site - it had a gorgeous view of one of the vulcanos here - and noone else was camping there that night.
Here is the video from the back of the truck. What a blast. Jan is happy.
