Well, we made it to the end of the world. It’s been a thrilling roller coaster of a ride with it’s share of ups and downs, but we would live every minute of it again. We’ve been meeting other folks from all over the world here in Ushuaia, Argentina and everyone has their own way of travelling, and their own reasons and motivations to do it. The sense of relief, achievement and even surprise is evident on everyone’s face and in the tales that they tell.
Anyway, To show you what it looks like here, This is where we spent last night…
The park is stunning, and has some free camping areas (after you pay to go in). They allow you stay 3 days, 2 nights on one entry fee which is fair enough. The part has some things you do not expect to see this close to Antartica…
We met up with Dave again, having met him in Viedma at the bikers meeting, and went to the end of Ruta 3 with him, and a Dutch couple (Ingrid and Branko) that he had met along the way.
but, when we got high enough we could just see about 40 feet due to the cloud that was delivering the most impressive set of hailstones. As the glacier was also white, we still do not know if we saw it or not.
We’ve parked up in a campsite so we can eat, drink and be merry with some fellow overlanders. Tomorrow we will be going on a Turkey hunt, starting with shopping trolleys in the various supermarkets, and if that does not work, the hunt may continue with bows and arrow in the national park! 🙂
Feliz Navidad amigos.
