Camped on the shore of Lake Fagnano just over 100km from Ushuaia. The strongest winds died down from this afternoon. We go mostly west from here so hope winds aren’t too bad tomorrow.
Today we some of everything including headwind, cross wind and slight tailwind. My tires were pumped up and had a strong ride today.
We had a bit of wine & cheese celebration and handed out jerseys for the ride. While my flight back to US isn’t until Sunday, many others already leaving on Friday so anticipate it being hectic with folks boxing bikes, etc so other than evening dinner – planned some of these festivities today instead.
Informal awards were given out, e.g. the one most adventuresome eating or most visits with medical facilities. Generally in good taste and fun. Mine was a “Dr Doolittle” award for talking to animals. Guess it comes from “moo-ing” at the cows, “baa-ing” at the sheep and otherwise engaging animals as we pass…
My plan is to skip some of that rush tomorrow and instead take some time to bike through downtown Ushuaia instead and catch the iconic “fin del mundo” sign.
First a long ride tomorrow with 1500m of climb and hopefully not too severe winds. Exciting to keep getting closer now.
