First at all, sorry my english , but almost sure you will understand...

It was december 2011 and i had 10 unexpected days with no responsabilities.
Weather conditions : Rainy days
Forecast : sunny days
i asked to my wife: "would you like to ride somes days?
the answer was: " yesssss!!!!!"
so we set up in 2 days and finally we left our town Puerto Montt (south of Chile )
it was cloudy and cold and we hoped weather conditions change for better during the afternoon.
Somes fews kms and it was the end of tarmac road.

Map of the trip

Puerto Montt is the beginning of 1300 kms road called carretera austral . To ridi it you must take somes ferries.
This is the first one.

during teh afternoon we met others riders, him from France and her from Mexico

it was amazing how all this vegetation , wild ruibarb welcomed us to the south .... here we got around 180 rainy days per year

also we visited some friens that offer us "cafe y sopapillas " kind of fried bread

after coffee we continued and finally arrive to Rio negro, Hornopiren , we found a camping and looked for shelter because we got heavy rain

the river beside campground
