Ushuaia Christmas 2012 rollcall

So who's going to be south for Chrissy? I've got a boat to Antarctica that gets back on the 21st, and looking for a few fellow riders to share a Christmas lunch or dinner with.

We're going to be around the area about that time.
Would you tell us more about the boat trip.
Schedule $ etc.

Booked it through Chimu, leaves on the 9th Dec, returning on the 21st. Cost me about $AU 5,000 but I booked and paid a while ago (6+months), and got upgraded when a large group booked out the boat I was originally on.Could be less (depreciation of the AR Peso, etc), but would probably be more.

The website has all the details regarding schedule, but basically it heads through the south shetlands & deception islands before touching down on the peninsula.

If you flick them an email to see if there's a few spots left, they'll get back to you pretty quick (betweeen AEST 9-5).

Cool, will see you there.

Any ideas on where to park the bike while on the boat? I've booked into the Antarctica hostel for the 7th and 8th, but everyone is going to be elsewhere it may be best to move her.

Good luck and god speed with the repairs, I'll flick you an email when I know more (In Esquel, ARG atm)

Maybe - I'm taking my sweet time getting down - if you see a bike with army saddlebags, leaning heavily into the wind, say hello!

Ushuaia bike storage

I'm coming through PA-Porvenir on the 5th/6th, into Ushuaia on the 7th, and off to Antarctica for the 9th-21st. The hostel will hold onto the bike, but to be honest I'd like to get rid of it before xmas.

on that note, Does anyone know of a charity that'd like a worn out KLR250? or someone who'd like to buy one, and donate the money to said charity? I'm not taking the bike back with me, and would love to see her be put to good use, rather than just left on the side of the road.

Paper work can't be done in Argentina and I don't think it's going to be useful without the papers. In Punta Arenas you are able to them.
I'll try to see what can be done here

Last year while in EL Calafate I had the best flan on the planet. Was eating it when about 8 ADVers who were on a Patagonia ride went by me.

I will be in Ushuaia in early Feb. on my way to Antarctica also. Will look for bikes with ADV stickers on.
