Narrow Argentinian Mountain Pass

Posted by on June 15, 2013

Narrow Argentinian Mountain Pass can focus your mind! This road is marked as normal on our maps, but it is the worst we have seen yet. It was a bit exciting at times!

We started from Tinogasta on Route 60 to go about 40km to Route 40. It took us about 25 hours! (We did stop at sunset, and start again at dawn. Stunning stuff, but I’m not sure I would recommend it for a full size truck.

    OMG guys!!! Firstly: Why?!

    Secondly, I’d need a small list of supplies before I’d attempt sitting in a truck with u on one of those passes:

    * sick bag
    * vertigo tablets
    * blindfold
    * swearjar
    * box of valium sandwiches
    * large bottle of something stiff
    * €1,000,000 on completion

    Still laughing at Sarah’s gentle “oh dear” as the truck nearly toppled over completely, and as you went past on the last rocky stretch we could hear all the pots & pans banging about inside the camper!!!!

    Yet again – OMG – you NUTS!!!

    If we never see you again at least we will have some idea what happened

      I think we will be back sometime, but there are a fair few more adventures to come before then. I don’t think we need them as hair raising as that one, but we have a few interesting places ahead of us. The next mountain pass is over 4000 metres high, I guess we will find out how we get on in the cold!
