We started our day after a cool night in the tent at the abandoned shell of a hotel.
The road to Rio Grande was lovely.
A strong tail wind and lots of wild life
- A fox feeding of some fresh carrion
- Rudy headed Goose
- Guanaco lots of them.
- Southern crested caracara
- Sparrow type of birds Buffy yellow
- Austral thrush looks like a Robin
- Patagonian finch
- A HERD of Hereford BULLS. They didn't move. We mosied around them. One was absolutely huge and watched us as we made our way.
We traveled along Route 9. A wide gravel track with estancions located along the roadside.
We stopped along the road and made tea/coffee for a late breakfast and zoomed along our way.
The road into Rio Grande is a circuitous root and to have to go way around and circle back into town. The is a long commercial and industrial strip before getting into a downtown core.
Our first order of business was to get money and find a place to stay. After riding 90km and no money in our pocket we were, at least I was, at the end of my rope.
Bank number 1 -no money
Bank number 2 - no money
I have to admit I did have a little pity party and cried. To which Bob so delicately said, buck up!
Bank number 3 -no money
Bank number 4 .... Yay money
