Today we left Chile and cycled along the Atlantic Ocean and ended near small town of Rio Grande. I have now entered and left Chile three times and entered Argentina four times and left three times. Each entry and exit gets a stamp, but fortunately still pages in the passport.
Yesterday after our ferry ride it was mostly gravel road riding on sparsely traveled road. We had a raging tailwind that at times pushed us along without pedaling. Whee!
Today after crossing the border back to Argentina, a paved but busier highway. Mostly flat, more tailwinds than headwinds and long open spaces. The highway signs now also keep listing distances to Ushuaia.
Nice to see distances count down (hooray two days to Ushuaia) but also sad (sniff, two days left). Still enough challenge with weather and road conditions that will focus there…
I just updated the pin on the map we have been using to track your progress since SCC. This is my last day in the office this year, so the map will just have to be out-of-date until the new year. It’s been really fun to follow along on your grand adventure.
