Anyone going to Bolivia?

At the moment I'm stuck in Formosa with mechanical problems, but I'm heading towards Salta and then Bolivia, Peru etc. Is there anybody out there who's also riding north and would like to meet up for a couple of days?

LA - California. That's the plan, anyway. But still stuck in Formosa in the northeastern part Argentina. It'll probably take me a couple of months to get to Central America.

Heading south

Gday,

Im in La Paz at the moment and heading out probably in 3 days or so. My route ismaybe down to Potosi, Sucre and then the salar into Chile. I planning to be in Chile in around 2 weeks. If you are gonna be in the area let me know and even though im going the other way we could do a side trip or something.

Take it easy,
Ilya

Annette,

You must be the same Annette I met with Roberto and Sonia from MotoAventura at the Esturion Hotel in Puerto Iguacu. You rode with us as far as Posadas on (I think it was) 16th May.

Hope you have dried out by now and found some more waterproof clothing, especially boots!,


We finished th e rest of the tour without any incident and I am now at home looking at the next trip with Motoaventura, hopefully back to Argentina and Peru in 2008.

Sounds like you have not yet made it to Asuncion. Hope the mechanical trouble is not severe and good luck with the rest of your trip

Best Wishes

Guy

Ilay,

A side trip sounds nice. I'll probably be in the Potosi/Sucre area in about 10 days - maybe less. All depends on when I'll be able to leave Formosa - got caught up in Argentinian bureaucracy of astronomical dimensions..... scary stuff!

Guy,

Great to hear from you! Glad to hear that the rest of your trip went smoothly. Hope you enjoyed Bs As.

I did make it to Paraguay, crossing the border in Encarnation (on the other side of Posadas) and rode north to Asuncion. Really nice. Have managed to avoid the rain, but ran in to mechanical problems (oil leak) on the way back from Paraguay. Should be on teh road again Wednesday!

Sounds nice with trip in 2008 with Roberto and Sonia!

Annette

By now I suspect you've closed in on La Paz.

How's the road conditions, the weather treating you?

I'm having some old-ass arthritis sort of problems - the hands especially are getting wacked by the cold here in Peru. The knees are giving me problems walking around Cusco today after the ride up from Nazca. And Bolivia is probably worse this time of year.

I might have to seek warmer climes.

Oops - haven't checked the HUBB for some weeks. Boilivia has been a lot of enduro fun!! I'm in La Paz now moving on to Lago Titikaka on Monday - if everything goes according to plan. Bolivia hasn't been that cold - when the sun is out it's actually quite warm. Perhaps we can meet up in Peru somewhere?
