Driven To Wander - Vancouver to Patagonia

I'm interested to hear why you'd go that route, as it's...... Outta the norm (for Canadians anyways) hahah. Genuine interest though, chance to spend more time in Patagonia, time/budget constraints?

Look forward to your reply.
The biggest reason we would ship the rig to Montevideo, Uruguay and start at south is, we think Patagonia deserves more time. Most North Americans doing this kind of travel drive down like us. And by the time most reach Patagonia they are either out of time or money to really enjoy it. As you may know, winters are brutal down there and most national parks are only open during summer (November to March). Another reason is, it is very hard to time it right to be there while driving from north. There are many amazing places on the way south and most overlanders either have to by pass them or they will not have enough time left for Patagonia's summer.

Perito Moreno Glacier in southern Patagonia. This 97 sq mile ice field is the world's third largest reserve of fresh water. Just to give you an idea how enormous this ice formation is, take a look at the second photo that has a cruse ship on the lake . We had great time watching giant ice chucks break off the face and sending huge waves across the lake.

"This is the end, my beautiful friend, the end". I feel like Martin Sheen, dazed and confused, staring at the ceiling in "Apocalypse Now". We have reached literally the end of the road, where one can not drive further south. After 2.5 years, ~42000 miles (~67000 km) and countless memories we have to turn around and head north for the first time.
We have found a beautiful wild camp site and celebrated with dear friends.

Looks like a wicked trip! FYI, a lot of your photos are not showing up - you need to make them publicly accessible in your Google account (they will show up for you because you'll be logged in).

And thanks for detailing the border crossing - I'll be taking the same route this October and this post will definitely come in handy!
hey I will be crossing the border in October too.... maybe we can hook up... :)
