Meeting Report from Oscar and Family:
Camila, Oscar's eldest daughter, wrote: "The meeting was fantastic, great people! I was really happy to be part of it, after 4 years missing them because of my studies! All the best, big hug from the whole family!
The Meeting was terrific, with people from all over the world. The weather wasn't always good but it didn't blow the good mood away! Thank you for being here and sharing a wonderful weekend with us, we were pleased to meet you! Sorry if some things didn't go well! Happy trips and enjoy!
We also want to thank you, Susan and Grant, because without you the meetings are not possible!"

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.
Any suggestions anyone?
Oscar () and Tel: 02920-424096. and his family have done an amazing job, made a lot of great friends, and helped a lot of people out by putting on this meeting for the benefit of travellers since 2003. He asks for nothing for his efforts, so we encourage you to help him out with a generous contribution.
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!
Hosted by Grant and Susan Johnson, RTW 1987-1998
