QUICK UPDATE: 12/6/2011

25,289 Kilometer and 521 days on the road I find myself riding solo in San Rafael, Argentina. Matt and I headed out of Salta after a very nice stay, but then parted ways after a week or so of riding towards the city of San Blas. With his plans of meeting a friend in the South, he was forced to move a little faster than I had been wanting to. So, from there I was on my own for a bit. 

In Chilecito I stayed at a wonderful firestation and was treated with incredible kindness and hospitality. Thank you all so much! From there I headed South and met a man named Williams who aided me in finding a place to stay one night and then welcomed me to stay with his family in San Juan. I took him up on that and enjoyed a couple great days with him, his wife, daughter, and father-in-law. Thank you all.

I arrived in Mendoza a week a go and enjoyed much time there with a good buddy from Colombia, Ricardo, and a great dude from England, Michael. I then took off, headed South and ended up here in San Rafael. I have decided to head back North toward Mendoza and back over the Andes to Santiago so I may take a flight back home to visit Gaby and the family. Should be a little haul, but a nice one. 

Back in the States soon! Looks like it will be a month away from the road!
