El Calafate

The famous Glacier, heading outa town we back-roaded it to our campsite some 30km from the park entry, Laga Roca was our destination, not the expensive camp but the free one just along a bit.

The camp, your ticket to a stunning free camp space

I can't believe why they won't let red motorcycles in around here ... some weird shit in this place ... just as well ours is orange and brown

Arriving at the site we picked a camp that had some wood as we had a big mofo piece of beef to do an asado

Having time to go for a walk we took the opportunity to look around and take the place in, the weather although meant to be fine was cutting in with snow laden cloud....ouwh yes and the temperature plummeting fast

Making a fire and getting organised for our cookup I found some more wire so made our asado net smaller in the openings so the sausies wouldn't fall through to an ugly death

For the first time in nearly three years we finally got to use our tarp as the rain set in for keeps, making the most of our new found shelter fud was consumed and rum drunk...quite a bit too of both.

In preparation for loose skywater

Some neighbours moved in and were speaking english so we went over and paid a visit, turns out they were neighbours...Ozzies so chats all round, their firewood supply was skinny so we grabbed the big piece we had and bought it over like good neighbours do...good times in front of a warm fire.

Good times again around a can't be good old cavemanism and grog
