Does anyone have any helpful hints regarding the availability of fuel and water and the condition of the 'roads' at this time of year.
All info (including GPS waypoints) gratefully received.
We did this trip in march, 2002, coming from San Pedro de Atacama crossing into Bolivia via Ollague. It was right at the end of the rainy season. Petrol in small quantity available at the "chief of town" of Ollague. There was still some water on the Salar de Uyuni, partly up to 30 cm. Anyway, we made it, happyly cruising on mainly dry parts of the salt-lake.
