Ushuaia... Bitch's

Full story to come but...
After a big three day push of 2,200+km's, I was raging the dirt and made it to my last Border crossing and as I was pulling in I heard BRAAAAP BRAPPP BANG BANG.. Fuck I know what that is..
I pulled up to the border with everyone looking at the loud guy wiht black smoking coming out hahaa....
Got off went in checking into Argentina.. then walked out looked down to find this... (the picture is after riding on it for 300km's thats why it is covered in black)

AS I WAS LOOKING AT IT AND LAUGHING THREE BMW GUYS FROM BRAZIL CAME OVER AND SAW IT.. VERY CONCERNED TOLD ME THAT THERE IS A TOWN ONLY 50KM'S AWAY THAT I COULD STAY THE NIGHT AND GET IT WELDED..I LOOKED AT THEM AND LAUGHED.. "I'M FUCKING MAKING IT TO USHUAIA TODAY.." AND THEN I LOUDLY MADE MY 300KM WAY TO USHUAIA.. HAAHHAA


HAHAHAHAHA

BUT THIS IS HOW I REALLY FEEL.. I LOVE YOU "ANIMAL" WE HAVE HAD 21+ THOUSANDS OF MILES OF ADVENTURE TOGETHER.. AND WE HAVE HAD AMAZING HOURS AFTER HOURS OF IMPORTANT CONVERSATIONS.. HAHAHA
ONE OF THE BEST FEELINGS I HAVE EVER HAD WAS PULLING UP TO THIS SIGN.. HOOTING AND HOLLERING..

Laugh Welding

Well it aint cheap down here at the "End of the world" for a weld ($100). Although very happy to find this guy. I was laughing showing it to him, and he was like "how is that possible, your bolts and pipe is tight, it should not have broken there, i have never seen one break there specially since the rest of the pipe is not loose" hahhaha I looked at him and laughed "yeah well meet "Animal" He is not your normal strong running KLR, he is "the Special kid, who rides on the shortbus"" hahahhahaha

Congrats dude!

Stoked for you. I'm sure it was a bit of a relief to finally accomplish one major goal on the journey. I would think the Darien was another goal.

Just remember, it's better then being stuck in an office or sweating balls in a kitchen. You're living the life!
