Cerro Sombrero To …..Ushuaia

Fin de Mundo - End Of The World

Wind, not too bad today, what a great reprieve.

Another border crossing, this time back into Argentina which is always so much quicker and easier.

Not much to say, only a small day of about 420 km, partly paved partly rippio, all easy going

What wind ... trees always grow sideways

For the last 86000 km our heated grips worked fine, today they decided it was enough …you’re shitting me …..your not ….. damn, seems that the last lot of rippio loaded with corrugations had seen the brake line wear through the cable to the heat controller unit …. great day for this to happen with such low temperatures..…and literally on our final day to the bottom of the world. ...good onya Murphy still cadging a ride with unsuspecting moto riders

Are we there yet?

Hauling out my winter gloves I had to suffer cold hands (i have bad circ to my fingers) but the prize was an almost rain free day into Ushuaia finally 2 years and 10 months after leaving on our 1 year trip from Alaska.

My mind was going overtime, very joyous having finally arrived but also some sadness realizing our finish line was even closer than I wanted …and my hands were cold.…poor wee princess

So, we did the Ushuaia entry photo, arriving at 4.07pm 25th February 2015.

Are we there yet?.....YES

Finding our friends at Momos Hostel we finally got to get off the bike and relax, our welcoming committee waving us in the door, outstanding.
