Patagonia – Day 8 (Logistics Issues)

Hello everyone,

I’m doing my best to keep the posts coming, but I’m sure it will come as no surprise to you if I tell you that the infrastructure / Internet here in Argentina is not exactly a Tier 4 platform.  In fact, sometimes there is no Internet access at all.

In fact, that was the case yesterday.

So, I’m going to update the posts to the best of my ability, and when I get a little more bandwidth, I’ll insert all of the videos.  Sorry, some of these videos are really great, but when I connected to YouTube to upload a video of 1:26, I was told to expect the update to take over 500 minutes.  So, I’m going to need to wait until we hit the next town to get the videos uploaded.  In the meantime, enjoy the pix and as Paul Harvey used to say…  The rest of the story.

  1. hi Cliff,

    Thanks for the great reading. I am on the next trip at the start of December. We will travel north on your bikes.
    Just getting the packing done. Motorcycle gear seems to take up 99% of the space.
    Anything i should leave out and essential items to take that I may not have considered?

    I look forward to more blogs and videos.



    1. Hi Trevor,
      it’s great to hear from you. I’m sure you’ll have a great time on the trip north. I don’t know if you’re a tall rider or not, but I highly recommend that if you are, that you reserve the 800 GS for the trip.
      I’ve captured your email address, so considering the wealth of questions that you might have, I recommend that we address them by email. But, don’t hesitate to post comments.

  2. You’re doing a great job Cliff, especially given the technical difficulties. I’ll be interested to hear what you thought of the day’s ride away from the estancia. I remember that as being a real challenge but also the day that my skill levels lifted to the point that I could enjoy spending less time screaming obscenities into my helmet. Looking forward to the videos when they come.

    1. Hi Andy,
      I’ve done my best to describe the ride from the Estancia with sufficient detail, without boring everyone. I think that your recollection is spot on, and I can say with confidence that I was also screaming a few obscenities into the helmet. I also had a few “moments”. I’m sure you remember how they felt.
