Mary backs into the containerThis has to be our most adventurous trip to date. Motorcycling through Chile and Argentina is well outside our normal comfort zone so we have chosen to do this on a guided tour with Rosco's Rocky Road.

The trip has been some time in the planning and preparation stages and the latest step is to load the bikes into a container in Mangere to hopefully meet us in Valparaiso.

Both bikes are serviced, paperwork is, we hope, in order, tickets booked, tools and other essentials loaded.  But there is lots of scope for this to go wrong!
