Some days we park up and stick around for 3, 4 , 5 days, some days we do 300 km which is a huge day here.

Hope this helps.
so basically what you're saying is that you're just simply lazy. i get it.

Fuel pump

Heya Andi,

Fuel Pump just arrived and I am sending it on via courier to Alex in Cuzco. There will be a bit to pay for the shipping.

Great RR! Watch out for those one lane roads!

Probably no further than Panama City, if that far. We took the road all the way down to the Gap last year. It was nice, but don't need to do it again. Within the next 18 months, I want to jump the Gap and start on South America!

Laugh There and back again. Dakar 2014!

Hi Guys,
Funny seeing the photos of new years when I was talking with you on Skype the the same evening and hearing them going off in the back ground.
Well, we made it through just and barely. Dakar was amazing to chase and I would recommend it to anyone with the interest to do the same. There is a technique to it following such an epic event and the trick is staying ahead of it. This means you wont get to see racing every day but you will travel at the same pace of the Dakar. Some of travel days were as long as 600+ ks to leapfrog ahead and the next day might only be a 250 ks including a few hours to kick back and watch the action. All in all we took in some amazing roads along our route and highly rate Northern Argentina.
Vicki and I are busy sifting through our photos from the month away and I will put together a highlights reel in the next week and post it for public consumption.

Great to see you two are doing so well and I'm loving the RR. Keep it rolling!!

Laugh Lago Lazo Huntay

....per Pitbull

Let's excuse me baby
Go, yeah you baby
Back, ooh you groovy baby
In, let's make a movie baby
Time, excuse me baby
Let's, yeah you baby
Go, ooh you groovy baby
Back in, let's make a movie baby
Time

Ok, this is a bit outa sequence cos someone who looks like me forgot to post it....how buggered if know .. .senior moment .... again

Sooooo nestled deep in the Area de Conservacion Regional Huaytapallana there is a lake called Lazo Huntay, to say it was beautiful is an understatement.

As we got closer the weather caved in soaking us on the way up the valley, luckily it stopped raining ...then it started hailing ... good thing we are used to that, it is rainy season here afterall .

Just out of the storm behind



After some 12 km of gravel road turning more off-road we made it to the lake, mum nature cut us a break in the weather allowing us time to take some pics and take in the full glory or the glaciers looking down on us.



Looking from the underworld of the mighty Mayan



Unfortunately the pics don’t do this place justice, coupled with the awkward light being produced by the snowing and hailing against the mountain our poor old camera struggled.



The lake is a beautiful light milky blue similar to that of Lake Pukaki and Tekapo in New Zealand, it was cold enough too to mimic New Zealand.



We had a window of 20 minutes to half an hour then that was it the weather really settled in dropping the temperature very fast and turning the place progressively white.

My peak got icicles and grew some stalactites with the cold so we were getting keener to drop our elevation which was 4780 meters.





All in all a fun morning out, arriving back in Concepcion it was sunny and warm, all the snow settling on us and Maya a distance memory already, what a difference 1580 vertical meters makes.

Concepcions main stay



The town from the top
