    I really struggled for about 3 hours to get the 2nd part of the stage done but I just could not link the terrain with the map properly. That loop really screwed me because there are no roads in the mountains that do anything like that that I could find.

    Also the quality of the photos is too granuluar to pickup possible HP sections. Thats the trouble with Argentina sometimes.

    I have an idea where they are all lost though....

    after a while the roadbook makes NO sense... I found that out first hand... I cant see them going too far.. then after back tracking they have the danger of running into one another...

    If the generic stage map is to be believed, there's a river crossing between wp9 and wp10. Wonder if it's a grade crossing? :lurk

    It's getting close to rainy season there now (if not already) iirc and it doesn't take much to get flash flooding. I crossed lots of rivers that were once roads around Salta and SMT.

    I flew out of Copiapo thursday night and there were hard thunderstorms all the way down the high andes. El Invierno Boliviano strikes the Dakar yet again.
