    Mike W. Well spotted, mate. Bernardo O'higgins, although born in Chile was from Irish ascents indeed. Probably no less interesting is the fact that he was helped by a certain English character, Lord Cochrane who comanded the Chilean navy at the time.
    Who said Irish and English could not achieve something?

    went To university THERE !

    New (Real) Name

    Hi All

    Just a quickie, as it's Christmas Eve and the party at the campsite in Puerto Madryn awaits.

    I heartily endorse everything that Joe has said regarding the Argentine people. They are almost impossibly welcoming and friendly. The HU meeting at Viedma was brilliant www.horizonsunlimited.com for those who don't know it.

    I have also had a bit of an off in the deep loose stuff. Been resting up for a week now, my leg and foot are almost back to their normal size after the bike landed on them. Vern's panniers have their first battle scars and dents! The frame has twisted, but only a little and the lids still fit fine. A guy I was riding with crashed his F650GS Dakar and his T'tech pannier was trashed after being ripped from the frame. It took about two hours to beat it back into a shape which enabled it to be remounted. I know which I prefer.

    Happy Christmas to one and all.

    Mick (aka Squidbrain)

    Mick, if you slacken off all the mounting bolts on the frames, the twist will more than likely come out on its own. Failing that, twat it with the biggest f*%king rock you can pick up

    You keep straight on, and when you come to a fork in the road, take it!

    Keep sending us your status reports, good buddy. Drive safely.

    Cheers,
