Santiago Chile to Vancouver Feb 2008

Hi All.

Change of plans,

May head down to Pucon before going over to Argentina. Then head North.

My plans are to head over to Mendoza Argentina then head North. Possibly into Bolivia and on to Peru. Have to hook up with some friends in Arequipa for a few days but other than that I have no fixed plan other than eventually ending up back in Canada.( Yukon Canada )
I'm traveling on a R100 gs. If you're interested in riding that way for a while or getting together to talk about travel experiences let me know.
I'm looking forward to meeting like minded - travelers and getting back on the road.
February 10th or 11th departure form Santiago??

Happy trails in the new year.

Santiago Feb 9th

Chas,
Sounds good . Lets keep in touch. I don,t know where I will be staying just yet but will let you know when I do. I may have a day or so with paperwork and insurance. Also need to pick the bike up at shipping and may need to do some assembly.

Hanging out in Santiago now

Just an update,

Had a problem with my alternator 192 r100gs and had a rotor sent down from Canada. Stator looks to be O.K but if I could find one i,d cahnge it out too. I should be up and running tomorrow.
Santiago is a tough place to get parts. No one stocks anything but they will order for an outrageous price.
If any one out there knows of a good souce of parts in Santiago please let me know.

Catch ya later,

Neal

Border crossing Ecuador

Wow,

Crazy crossing,

Three differrnt locations and you gotta look for them. Start at he Peru side and get your exit paperwok done then on to Aduana for Equador Bike paperwork . Next stop Immagration Down the road on the right just out of town. Bit of a mess getting out of town and it busy.
Must be getting used to the system as I didn,t get stressrd out at all.
Riding 20m miles just to get out of Lima was a lot more interesting.

Any how I,m just acrosss the border into Equador and still looking for someone to ride north with.
Oh yea I ran into this Argentina fellow on a (guesssing ) 350 cc honda all decked out and the guy had been everywhere and was heading back to BA.
Made my day.

Cacth ya later.

Ride Columbia

Guacomo,

Decided to ride Columbia and it was great. Made new friends everywhere I went. Great stories to tell and great roads to ride. I would have liked to have spent more time here but I am off to Panama tomorrow.
Wasted three days trying to ship from Quio. I would definatly recommend Girag in Bogata.

Keep in touch,

Neal
