    This is when the road to my campsite was washed away and block by the bloody rain took hours to get it open again, but it was a good laugh with the locals clearing it.

    The Pase de Jama,
    the one with me at the signpost was me feeling very happy with meself for getting through the mud but only 40km up this road it just got worst..
    the other is taken at about 4000metres the trucks are not moving there stuck they have to wait till the sol comes out and dries the mud or the rain comes again and they wait..

    And this is the pase de Jama again,
    you can see the clay I have removed from the brakes and the mudguard on the left beside the tyre, and till more to go the front wheel was just lock solid you can see the tyre is not even making a print in the mud just sliding, Yosi I asked about the way into Chile and have been told its not passable because of the rain this was by a fellow who runs a mining company up at the Sico Pase so God knows which way I will go, but thanks for the tip.

    sure ya ave to
