Who poo’s in a box????

C – Oh what a warm nights sleep. I kept waking up and smiling to myself at how warm my toes were! But, alas, Ushuaia is calling and despite the weather we are both keen to get there. It was a freezing cold morning, with the temperature gauge showing it was definitely below 0 degrees…

Rattling and rolling in the snow

T – We were so warm and cosy in the hostal. We didn’t want to feel the cold so the next few extra layers of clothing went on today in anticipation of the cold we would be riding in. We have been watching the very rapid advancing of the snow down the hills nearby lately…

Mabel, Mabel if you’re able…

C – Boy did it get windy during the night! I certainly heard some of those famous Patagonian winds blowing through the street last night.

He ate my steak and stole our bread

T – We managed to get away at the super early hour of 11am today! We were just enjoying relaxing in camp this morning and felt no need to rush out. C – It was lovely just hanging out in the camp, drinking tea. We were both a little shocked when we found out the…

Everything is green!

T – It seemed like we had finally gotten Rosie up to scratch! She was running well, albeit a little smoky on her first startup in the mornings. Rings or valve seals or something. I can deal with that. It had rained last night and both of us had left ALL of our gloves outside…

It was actually my fault

T – We know we are getting south now. The nights have a chill to them and every morning our tent is drenched in dew. We think we are just a couple of days from the start of the Carratera Austral! So exciting!!! C – Rosie started up well and I hoped that I had…
