Report from Oscar Knecht, Meeting Organiser
HI Susan and Grant! The meeting was great, we had a wonderful time with the travellers. Was 23 moto travellers and two bicycle travellers. Was a very good week end. Thanks for the oportunity to know travellers that have different dreams and historys. We had asados, some beers and wine.
Thanks so much too, at all the people that made it possible and specials thanks to Sebastian Brunner. Javier Kapper send to me one sheepskin seat cover (donated by Alaska Leather!). If you need some information about the meeting, let me know please! Thanks again to Susan and you Grant: A big hug from Viedma. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all the travellers. All the best: Oscar.
And from his daughter "Flopy" (Floricita)
Hi Grant, WE HAD A REALLY GOOD TIME :) Thanks again for give us the great opportunity that you give us every year to be part from this group of friends: Horizons Unlimited. We hope to meet you soon in other meeting, that would be really nice for us. A big hug from the Knecht's Family. :) I've attached photos from the meeting! (see below)
Our thanks go to Oscar and his family for all the amazing help and the fantastic event that they put on every year - it's become the big event of the year for travellers in South America!

GPS co-ordinates: 41º 03.167' W 62º 49.805' - this is for Los Trentinos
Note that your map may say "Balneario Massini" for those coordinates. Whatever, it's at the mouth of the Rio Negro.
Getting There - GPS, Maps
40° 49' South 62° 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 Oscar for information if you have trouble. 02920-424096.
There are hotels in town, shouldn't be a problem.
See the Viedma Community page.
Are you an Overland Adventure Traveller?
Does the smell of spices wafting through the air make you think of Zanzibar, a cacophony of honking horns is Cairo, or a swirl of brilliantly patterned clothing Guatemala? Then this is the site for you!
