... the distance. It was mainly gravel road most of the way with us only passing three vehicles the whole way. There weren't service stations so it was bathroom stops along the side of the road the whole way. We got to the hostel around 14:00 and had the rest of the afternoon to explore the town.

The final mention in my blog post will go to the lovely and helpful guy, Martin, we met at BAFT. Not only did he book us on some great tours but gave us lots of information in preparation for the W Trek.... which told us there was no need to book ahead of pay $1,000 USD each! It really is the people you meet travel who make your adventures memorable.

We were originally supposed to meet them in Ushuaia after they finished their cruise to the Antarctic, but their boat had broken down and the trip canceled.
