Finally finished my road trip, which... actually felt more like an endurance. 5 days in total, 3 to go from Carazinho, Brazil, to Valparaíso, Chile, and another 2 to come back from Valparaíso to Porto Alegre, in Brazil. With about 5200 km on the clock, I averaged about 1000 km a day, plus two days in which I stayed in Valparaíso to rest/plan the way back. That's without breaking any speed limits (save for the Brazilian legs of the trip... probably) and stopping every night to rest, so it's actually possible to do the same course much faster. Along the way, I found out that a 30 pesos map is worth a lot more than a cutting edge 800 reais Garmin GPS, Argentina is a lot better to drive in than Brazil, booking hotels beforehand is never a good idea, spotted no less than 8 Chevrolet Novas and more Ford Falcons than you can shake a stick at, challenged the Andes both in the middle of summer and winter within a two days interval, and learned to drive in snow with summer tires... while going up the caracoles, near Paso de Los Libertadores on the Chile-Argentina border. I might do a better write up later on, but I really need to sleep right now...
