64 miles to go

My brain doesn’t seem to be functioning these days – it’s glued to Ushuaia!  We’re now in Tolhuin, 64 miles from Ushuaia – nearly there!

And it’s a good thing too – fall is most definitely in the air.  The cool, crisp temperatures tell me so…

Kilometers today:  49

Kilometers to date: 27722


Packing up this morning

Getting back out to the road was a challenge – we had to push our way through the trees just as we pushed through last night to get in.

The forest is lovely – lots of moss and fall colors

Ushuaia is just over these mountains!  So close!

About Nancy Sathre-Vogel

After 21 years as a classroom teacher, Nancy Sathre-Vogel finally woke up and realized that life was too short to spend it all with other people's kids. She and her husband quit their jobs and, together with their twin sons, climbed aboard bicycles to see the world. They enjoyed four years cycling as a family - three of them riding from Alaska to Argentina and one exploring the USA and Mexico. Now they are back in Idaho, putting down roots, enjoying life at home, and living a different type of adventure. It's a fairly sure bet that you'll find her either writing on her computer or creating fantastical pieces with the beads she's collected all over the world.

    You will have to write about your trip back to Idaho, and then what it is like getting back to whatever you plan to do next. We all will be interested. I suspect we will be seeing you on TV over the next few months.

    This is so exciting! I’m writing this on Sunday, so tomorrow is the “big day”. I feel like it’s Christmas Eve, and I’m waiting for Santa to arrive!
