River Crossings on Carretera Austral and Route 40???
I am doing a rough planning of my route through Southern Chile and Argentina. My final destination is TDF. I really want to do the Carretera Austral from Chaiten down to Cochrane, then head East to Route 40. What I need to know is if there are any river crossings on this route. I am riding a V-Strom 650 and must say I am a little skeptical of its capabilities of going though anything more than a small stream. Should I think about ex-naying Carretera Austral and head East to Route 40 further north?
Many thanks in advance for any advice!
Also, what's the gas situation like along the Carretera Austral(from Chaiten to Cochrane) and route 40(from Perito Moreno south)? Will a 300 mile range be ok or should I get a "jerry can"?
