The general plan is simple.
Show up Friday, have a drink, tell some lies, have another drink, eat, talk to people, sleep!
On Saturday, lunch on a boat cruise on the Rio Negro. The cost of ticket for the boat is 40 pesos for the boat, and the price of lunch on board is currently unknown, but will be more or less 30 to 70 pesos.
On Sunday we will go to the countryside for Patagonian lamb on the farm of a friend, the price is 95 pesos each, with salad, wine and ice cream too.
Monday, time to head south for Christmas and New Years at Ushuaia, or east or west or wherever!
At last word: Camp ground per person per day Arg$10.00. One time charge for tenting for the 3 days $10.
Meals, boat rides etc not included. See prices above in the plan.
Donations to defray Oscars expenses gratefully accepted! See Oscar at the Meeting.
We need to let the facilities know as soon as possible how many we're expecting so they can have enough staff on. NOTE: Food and drink is NOT included, but we're assuming you will want to eat and have a drink, or two...
If you have a few minutes, please download the poster - (Adobe pdf format) and print off a few and hand them round your club or your local bike shop or anywhere seems like a good place.

There are several great rides in the area, and Oscar will take you on at least one! Ask Oscar for details on more when you get there.
Everything is based at the Campground, location details below.

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.
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!
