Ushuaia - December 2012

Anyone else planning to go to Ushuaia on Dec. 21st 2012 to watch the end of the world in the end of the world itself?
I started to plan this trip after read Patrick's page. I'm planning to do this trip on my GN125. The route right now is:

Uberlandia (my hometown) - Chuy - Punta del Este - Colonia - Gualeguaychú (to avoid the ferry boat) - Mar del Plata - Ushuaia (December 20th until 23rd) - El Calafate - (Ruta 40) - Bariloche - Paso Antonio Samoré - Osorno - San Pedro de Atacama - Paso de Jama - Puerto Iguazú - Uberlândia

Leaving Dec. 1st 2012 and arriving back at Jan 30th 2013.

Interoceanic Trip

Hello,
Sorry to go off-topic on your thread.
I am considering a trip on the Interoceanic highway in late April, and I read one of your other posts about going from Sao Paulo all the way to Lima. I am probably going to rent a vehicle (maybe 4x4, maybe motorbike). Do you think I could do this journey in a week or is that not realistic? Also, I see the bridge at Puerto Moldanado is not finished. Is the detour very difficult? Will the roads be affected by rain(ier) season in late April?
Thank you
Rob

If you drive "flying by" the countryside is possible to go from SP to Lima in less than one week (in fact there's a commercial bus route between SP and Lima which takes only 96 hours), the big problem would be leaving Brazil with a rented vehicle (customs regulations in Brazil are a pain in the a**, if you are not the owner of the car/bike, you gonna need an special authorization recognized at a registry office from the owner to leave the country).
The information about the bridge you have is wrong. The bridge is already open to traffic since July 2011, and the route between SP and Lima is 100% paved, so you don't need to worry about the rain season.
