Viedma meet and lodging in Buenos Aires

Two expats (Spain and USA) here in BA interested in December meet in Viedma and then heading south.

Please advise, maybe everyone is waiting for everyone else to establish where and when?

Until time to leave for Viedma meet, Hubbers passing through Buenos Aires are welcome to very safe temporary parking for bikes and private entrance/safe kitchen apt with private bath for "overnighters" in Recoleta.

For those returning to BA we can work a deal for renting apt/parking during December and after. Please arrange your visits in advance. thanks ........ Elisa and Ed xfiltrate

Thumbs up HU Argentina Meeting

Hi All

I asked Oscar Knecht (who organises the meeting) and he tells me that it is over the weekend of 8/9 December. You can get there as early as you want and camp by the river. Where else can you sit around a map with motorcycle travel legends telling you all about the road of bones .......................?

Not to be missed!

Regards, Mick

Viedma

Thanks Mick, we will be at the river on or before or after 8/9 December. Two bikes, two expats (Spain and USA) and a tent, so far.... Is there need to do anything, except get there? Any particular spot on the river? GPS coordinates maybe?

I am ready to be on the road again. Cities are fine, especially Buenos Aires, but a few weeks on the open road are always better than months anywhere. All are invited to give us a call when passing through Buenos Aires... cell # 15 6811 1125 thanks again xfiltrate

I think if you check the 2005 Viedma meeting info you'll find more details, including GPS coord's for the campground.

Except, I think Grant may have just updated the meetings page because the links to prior year events are gone.

Someone with more time could do a search perhaps.

------------
ah...its back - here's from the 2005 page:

http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/mee...entina2005.php

GPS co-ordinates: 41º 03.167' W 62º 49.805' - this is for Los Trentinos

Note that your map may say "Balneario Massini" for those coordinates. Whatever, it's at the mouth of the Rio Negro.

Viedma is right on the main highway heading south from Buenos Aires. Hard to miss! You shouldn't have a problem finding the campsite once you get there, just ask for the "campground by the river". Phone Oscar for information if you have trouble. 02920-424096.

(don't know that the above phone # is valid or not - from 2005)
