My Adventure Story
57 degrees when we left Osorno this morning. By the time we got over the mountain and down to Bariloche is was 82. A perfect blue sky day.
Processing out of Chile and in to Argentina was painless and with no BS. Wish Central America could clean up their act.
The two volcanoes are really putting out the ash. They plow the roads but it's no fun to get behind a truck or bus on the two lane highway and eat ash. Saw a tractor trailer rig that had run off the road in the mountains just after crossing in to Argentina. It must have happened quite some time ago as there were no ambulances around, only police directing traffic as only one lane was open. Can't tell you the number of wrecks, mostly trucks, that we've seen since leaving Reno.
Sara drops off here in Bariloche and her sister Izzy, from Fargo will join her on Friday.
Dave and I will take a rest day, Thursday, and then head for Ushuaia. It'll be a six day ride of 1,499 miles, We'll have to take a ferry across the Straits of Magellan, and cross through a portion of Chile. There will also be extreme high cross winds and the forecast is that the last two days will have rain.
Sebastian Danielsen and the staff at the Monte Cervino Hotel have been helpful above and beyond what is expected.
We got to Bariloche at 14:30 with a 154 mile day.
