Ushuaia Around And About

Talking it easy saw sleep ins to 10 -11 am and breakfast time interrupting lunch hour, a few short walks around town to take in Ushuaia and the local surroundings.

I also fixed my heated grips which was a worn/chaffed wire

To this, I thought there was only two wires in there but no there was seven when then taped everything back together nicely

Our BDCW bracket had also broken and as luck would have it right across the street from Momos there is an alloy welder, 3 pieces back to one means a one complete smile again

We enjoyed several days of meeting moto riders in and out of the hostel and meeting the famous Noah Horak and his girlfriend Lucy.

I also helped Andrea and Becks get their bike sorted for sale, some starter motor and flat tire stuff and some wiring fixes.

Was cool to meet a fellow traveller that has travellered so far and many places on his moto a KTM690 Enduro, the more capable smaller brother to our SE.

His reward for turning up here was to take Lucy out for a ride on Maya, Lucy has never been out on a bike before so it was all new for her, sunset at Ushuaia.

Recognize this dodgy dude?, pictured with Lucy his chickie

We have thoroughly enjoyed Ushuaia, it is a great place, not just a destination to turn around quickly and hit it north.

For us, certainly a box ticked but another box opened up and ticked by way of spending time taking in the parks etc.

Our plan now is to head down Road J to the end and camp out so we will be off grid again for a few days.
