A 950 going very South - 5,000 miles to Carretera Austral, Ruta 40 and Ushuaia

Next Friday I'll start a trip to Carretera Austral (Chile) and Ushuaia (Argentina). With two friends, the ride will take us from Neuquén (Arg) down to Villa O'Higgins - the Southern city in Carretera Austral.
From there, up North to cross Paso Jeinimeni then down to Ushuaia. From Ushuaia, North thru Ruta 40 and other roads as close to the Andes as possible, back to Neuquén.
Off-Road is the goal, the more dust the better.
We live in Brazil, 2,000 Km far from Neuquén and will go with the bikes in a trailer. A BMW 800GS, a 990 and my 950. Ages from 55 to 62 - young guys with old dreams.
Will try to post in a daily basis, accordingly to the available Internet connection.
Any advise concerning the route and roads will be appreciated.
Hope the RR could help future travelers and shake the dust from old dreams...

Days 1 and 2

As planned, we left town in the Friday, November 15th.
3 guys, 3 bikes and 2.300 Km to Neuquén (Argentina).
We carry the bikes in a trailer to be towed by a diesel truck for 2 days.

The pickup owner is a lazy guy and likes to sit in the back seat, eating cookies, drinking sodas and giving me the wonderful chance to ride his vehicle.
Nice start, I will arrive at Neuquén very tired I guess.
We rode 460 Km in my state and then crossed the Uruguay border. Another 500 Km and we are in Argentina. 270 Km ahead and is time to stop for a relaxing night. I deserve it for sure. Both fellows spent the day eating, chatting and sleeping. A good 'bife de chorizo' and a local vine was devoured before go to bed.

Continuing...

After 2 days of long and boring asphalt we arrived at Neuquén (ARGENTINA).
Found a nice hotel in the road full of empty space to park the pickup and trailer. From now on, motorcycles only, please.
I was a little bit excited. The bike was overhauled during 3 months and this will be our first long trip. We've planned a trip with more than 5,000 miles of dirt roads mostly. Got a pair of TKC80 and didn't knew if they could last the entire trip. And, one of the partners had a short trip to Uruguay a month before and came with serious aches in the right arm, feeling it dormant, asleep like. It included the hand also...

Tell me more about your trip

I want to know more about your trip if possible routes. I leave in Brasil and also have a 990 Adventure and planning to travel.

I was in Osorno last year with my family by car.

Have a safe trip and enjoy.

Carlos
