I'm following the America north-south trip of Slovenian couple trough their web site (http://www.severjug.si/).

The site is in Slovenian language but I'm sure they will share info with you if you contact them by mail (urska.kordis (at) gmail.com , miheljak (at) gmail.com ).

Best regards,
Tom

I just got back from 6 weeks in S.A and while in Ushuia locals told me that the weather from end of march on is bad.
The weather will be a factor if you want to hit Ushuia, Torres del paine, El calafate etc. this time of year

As far as insurance is concerned it may be bought at any larger border. For Argentina I paid approximatly $60 American.

Good luck................. Patrick
