Team A said goodbye to Team B at the hospital in Bariloche today and headed west around Lake Nahuel Huapi. We arrived at the Chile border around 1:30 and spent several hours exiting Argentina and entering Chile.
The Andes mountains are truly incredible. A blend of Yosemite, Glacier National Park, and Lake Tahoe. It is an extraordinary region of the world and we are so fortunate to have been able to experience it today as we did. We are making good time and getting back on schedule. However, our priority is riding safely.
The ride feels much different with only three riders. We miss Doug, Brad, and Steve. We are logging our trip and feeding them helpful information for their journey, roughly six weeks from now. We arrived in Temuco, Chile around 9 PM this evening, just as it was getting dark. The best part of Chile are the roads; they are advanced with great signage and well maintained.
