South America

Just returned from a trip through Argentina and Chile. About 6,000 kms of which about 2200 was gravel and dirt. Started in Mendoza, rode over to the coast and back (Los LIberatores pass!!!) and then headed south. Ducking in and out of Chile and ending up in Ushuaia. Took about 3 weeks. Here is the link to my tracker and I have attached a few pictures.

If you go up to the tool bar, click on "south america 2018", click on adjustments, click on "fill", set to "all" then click on update, it fills it in better.

Yes.
Renedian Adventures.

Used Rene when we went to Africa as well. I am getting too old to do the true "adventure" thing and wing it in countries I am not familiar with.

Outstanding! As an intrepid armchair traveler, there are many, many places in this big world I would love to experience, and the high Andes are at the top of that list. I'm pretty sure I'll make it one of these days, though I might not be able to swing it on a motorcycle. That would be my first choice for mode of transportation, though. Thanks for the pics.
