Thanks very much to: Peter Slarke, Jessica Hartridge, Albert Hoermann, David Taylor, Bob Morley, Angie Cordano, Gino Lofredo, AmÃ¨rico Bustamante, Julio Grova, Hugo (transalp), and special thanks to the Commissioner of Viedma, Jorge Ferreira and his wife, he came to the meeting and invited us for a great lunch in the casino in La Boca beach.

So much thanks too to Marcela Ely and all the girls that were working on all the details of the meeting. For the boss police of La Boca, Adalberto Cravota, that made a big job with the care for our bikes and the campsite at all times. The photos are coming in he next days, because I haven't a digital machine, and I need to get the photos from my friends.
See you next year! Oscar"

Getting There - GPS, Maps
40Â° 49' South 62Â° 59' West.
Viedma is right on the main highway heading south from Buenos Aires. Hard to miss! You shouldn't have a problem finding the campsite once you get there, just ask for the campground by the river. Phone Oskar for information if you have trouble. 02920-424096.
There are hotels in town, shouldn't be a problem.
Any suggestions anyone?
See the Viedma Community page.
