Happy New Year, Mark!

Looks like you're coming back from the end of the world - and ready for more!

Mark I'm more excited about the return trip up then I was about the trip down... now that you've had an opportunity to interact with all these other riders... what are you looking forward to? do we have a route to look at from our easy chairs?

Happy new year, Mark! We're still following along from up here. We're curious to see what's next. Be sure to plan for a long stop in BA. It's a GREAT town.

A belated happy New Year Mark. Following your journey is both humbling and exhilerating at the same time. Wishing you happiness and safe travels.

Young James is in Ushuaia.He coud not decide what to do, as he had a noise in his final drive, and he is committed to helping Sherri Jo get her bike running which is back up in Argentina..... We asked him to ride with us, but was just not sure...

Had a great New Years Day in Ushuaia



Was fun to see Sherri Jo and Young James



Then rode out of Ushuaia Heading north......



Crossed the Argentinian Border and headed to the Chile Border



SlowPhil heading out on the gravel roads



[IMG]Lots of bikes heading out over the border today



And Bill flies off ahead of us to catch the ferry to Puerto Arenas



as we get near Porvenir it is a great coast road.



Some remote fishing spots



Arrived at to Puerto Arenas and Hostal Fitz Roy in the rain :( But it was clear in the morning and SlowPhil had an appointment with Motoadventura Guy to get new tires. Phil Pole dancing?



Bill and SlowPhil saying goodbye



Alejandro runs a very tidy and organized shop!





Funny.... Oregon plate on the wall. Made me smile



My sticker added



My sticker ... Always near Kiwirider



After a long morning getting Phil sorted out.... We split off as I headed to Puerto Natalies and Phil toward BA

Pleasure meeting and riding with you!!



A windy ride up Rn 9 to Puerto Natalies....
