Corresponding imagery to a roving and dirtstruck cyclist...


This is how you know you have made it to Patagonia

Monkey Puzzle trees

A gateway to giddy splendor


Walking on the surface of the moon


A quiet and windless spot for a cup

Get it where you can. Windless sleeping

Fetchaholic

More expensive than the other brands and not compatible with other pasta










Bikeshacking

Railcart across the marsh


yet another crossing

My first run in with the infamous Austral

more Bikeshacking
and more shutter speed play


Roadside dulce de leche y manzana... mmm

I don't think I'm the first to partake of these free accommodations 




The feast! Casa de ciclista in Villa Maniguales. I got there and it was empty. I was bummed, I was really looking forward to some company and interaction after weeks riding dirt hyways alone. But slowly the cyclist rolled in and we had a great dinner. 

To bad Mike was going the other way. A cool dude and a fellow bikepacker

I first met Simon and Olivia back up in Lapaz. By completely different routes we bumped into each other again here in Southern Chile.


Fresh snow in the hills. Proof that winter is coming on fast at the bottom of the world. Gotta get scootin.

  1. The Fetchaholic - we spent hours with that dog, and we definitely cracked before he did. Tailwinds from Puerto Natales!

    1. Yea Thanx, Pablo. The carretera Austral has been better than I thought. Im really enjoying it. Feels like a little back road most the time. It was really great hanging out with you. Bummed when you did not turn up in Chos Malal. I know how you like the beer, I had a cold one waiting for you. Next time! Good luck in with your Alaska dream. Remember Ill help you with all the infomation and connections I can. Cheers, Buddy
