    Hey guys,

    I'm planning a trip to Patagonia in Feb 08. It started off with four guys and now it's down to two. My remaining riding partner is unsure about making a decision. He's vertically challenged which makes things even more difficult. I have made my decision, but I would prefer not to go solo. :jive

    I am leaving 31 Jan and returning 12 Feb. I have reserved a bike with Patagonia riders (check out the website) from 02 Feb til 08 Feb. The plan is to arrive in Punta Arenas, ride to Parque Torres del Paine, Cerco Castillo, Rio Gallegos, Rio Grande, Ushuaia, Porvenir, Punta Arenas. I'm packing a tent/sleeping bag and plan overnights either camping or in a hotel on the fly. :kumbayaIt's alot of riding.

    I work the for the airlines, so that's why I can plan such a short trip.

    Anyone interested in joining me?

    What has being "vertically challenged" got to do with it? Just curious.

    They don't see eye to eye on things.

    My companion has short legs and the GS's are relatively tall machines.
