Well, now we left Viedma, (actually El Condor!) and before I forget:
Xmas meet in UShuaia is at Camping Rio Pipo.
How to get there:
Go toward the rugby Club and the National Park. When the road turns to ripio, after the rugby club, the campsite is there. I have been told that there is a covered area. In case it rains,we will still be able party!
Daniel (or whoever been there before) if I made a mistake correct this!
It was amazing to meet all of you guys in Viedma! Hope to see you soon!
From one radio celebrity to another, watch your e-mail for a message from email@example.com. Or send him an e-mail the soonest possible....He would like to communicate with you regarding an urgent matter. It was great to see you again at the meet in El Condor.
Keeep us posted on your travels, We are in Rio Colorado...Spent yesterday with a guy who saw an alien..up close and personal.....xfiltrate, Ed and Elisa
Ed and Elisa, got all the messages, it´s ok we will check scout750´s bike. Seems exciting your trip, you must tell me all about that when we´re back in BAs, in April! Hope we can stay with you!
TedMagnum: we´re in Peniula Valdes, leaving tomorrow to go to Trelew to visit the Dinosaures museum (!) then all the way south, stopping probably in Puerto Deseado to see penguins, and also some pretrified forests.... Where are you? We saw your mate Duncan here, staying at the Backpacker Hostal. As it is 2 dorms only (one for boys one for girls) you may prefer the campsite if you want a chance to sleep!
Hola, made it into Ushuaia yesterday in pouring rain. Weather is slowly improving.
Currently staying in hotel la posta out at the airport roundabout.
For those of you who are still travelling, there is a great hostal in Rio Grande called hostal Argentino. Very freindly owners and good bike parking all at the right price.
After the ferry ride to Tierra del Fuego take the road south of Cerro Sombrero to onoain then across to San Sabastion as it is in much better condition than the truck route.
See you in a couple of Days.
Peter&Carol and the old red bmw...
I left Peninsular Valdez 3-4 days ago (I lost count)..
I hit the 3 with the intention to also go to and see some Penguins at Punto Tombo but half way down the ripio, there was major building work going on and they made me turn back when I was only 15 clicks from the coast.. Very pissed off caus its a nightmare doing ripio on Trailwings (deathwings)...
So, I went to Commodore Rivadavia for a night, then spent 2 nights in Puerto San Julian..
Today I rode 230 miles to Rio Gallebos in the worst wind of my life. Truely depressing day. Spent 7 hours doing 45mph in killer head winds on the RTA 3. I have to stay here now as Javier from Dakar Motos has sent me some tyres to collect here at Rio Gallegos. They were meant to be here for me to collect today (friday) but the guy said I have to wait until Sunday
So, im stuck in a uber expensive hotel room waiting for these tyres.. If anyone else is heading to Rio Gallegos, i have 2 spare beds for tonight and Saturday 22nd (maybe longer). Mobile (UK) +44 (0)789 486 0430..
I hope to make Rio Grande for Tuesday or Wednesday next week.. Xmas on the road for me it seems !!
This is probably too late to help but a good hotel on Rio Gallegos is the Hotel Covadonga. On the main street downtown, 65 pesos in Feb. 2007 (for 2), great cycle parking. For tires and repairs the authorized Honda shop has a large selection of tires. I saw the owner repair BMW's,and a Harley, besides the range of Asian bikes. He let me use his shop and tools for 6 days, no charge. Anyone going north on Ruta 3 in the next days or weeks? I left my bike in an unsecured location and would appreciate someone checking to see if it is still there. Martin
Sorry Ted lost a day..Woops! I´ll be through Rio G Tomorrow Sunday. Maybe your tires will be there as well and we can ride together south. Best to send me an email directly and <i will check in when <i arrive SUNDAY..
Martin let me know where you left the bike and on my way back to B. Aires I would be happy to stop in and check on it.
