    I was wondering if there was some recent info on the scheduled "improvements" on the Ruta 40 ? I expect to start my ride north around April 1st, 2008 and I'd like to know about surface conditions etc. . . Any and all info is appreciated..

    I was through in early March of this year and alot of road construction is taking place in the vicinity of Bajo Caracoles. Approx. 30 kms north of Bajo Caracoles and I was on new asphalt.

    I don't know. For one thing the paving process is moving very quickly with many detours along side roads in the area while grading takes place. Approx. 60 kilometers South Tres Lago to approximately 30 Kilometers North of Bajo Caracoles is still unpaved with grading in progress (as of March of this year).

    Your trip looks pretty epic, I've just subscribed :D
