I love it when a plan comes together

The next day, Simon and MC came to the rescue. We took their spare and crossed our fingers that neither of us would have a flat for the 3 hours of pavement to Punta Arenas.

Camille was able to confirm that the Shooting Star was dead and it wasn’t worth trying to repair (and to sell or ship back to the US in 2 months). She was able to quickly find a very excited buyer, and was happy that it was going to a local gal.

Simon was able to find some new shocks that were close (we’re not the only ones to break them all the time), and modified them for his bus. Things were coming together… we even had a poker night and Wii party.

We met our new VW friend Christhian, who was able to find a part Simon needed and give us some advice on where to buy some other things. He and his family hosted an asado for all 7 of us. I’ve never seen so much meat on one grill! Smoked salmon, pork, chicken, beef. All delicious, but everyone seemed to be most excited about the salmon. Paul and Simon are determined to catch and smoke their own.

Thanks for hosting us, Christhian!
