Bumpy Rides




Hopefully the roads will be better from here on out. There is no telling what´s going to happen in Bolivia but the thinking is it can´t get any worse. Only higher. Like 12000 feet higher. We just finished up the Carretera Austral, about 600 miles of gravel that was stunningly beautiful but pretty hard on contact points between (wo)man and machine...they are actually in the process of paving the whole thing, occasionally throwing backhoes and earth movers into the mix of things to avoid. Check out Thea and Harris carrying a bike up a horse track at the Argentinean border as we rushed for a ferry, Harris pushing it out through the mud after a big rain, and a CP team rider taking a digger as a Guns N Roses obsessed tractor driver blows past.

To the holy quatro - you guys are amazing. Reading your blog makes me want to eat razor blades and shit bricks. It's hardcore, it's epic, it's mind-bendingly cool. My manhood feels so much smaller in comparison to yours. Maggie says her womanhood feels smaller in comparison too. But you know how badass you are already. I bet you could each out-Bunnet Dave Bunnet in an indian leg-wrestling contest. I bet he's shitting bricks just thinking about it. I'm glad you guys are safe. Keep on high fiving the locals. Everyone everywhere is insanely jealous. Nice blogging too!

Harris when did you become a mountain man? Looks like a great trip. Beware of Stremnaya, the road of death -isn't that in Bolivia? I'll second my dad, Uncle Stan, to keep enjoying the South American wine! But not while you are travelling Stremnaya. Can't wait to see the next part of your adventure.
