No problem, I was just trying to add only the pics that are really unicycle related, but yes, I stopped for quite a bit in El Chalten - I won't be the fastest or bigger rider... - but I've had the most amazing time!!

Well I count in km, it's more than 1600km, I don't have the exact number since my computer stopped working a bit some days.
Only another 3000 to go... I've had a hard time getting the right number for Ushuaia to Santiago but it looks like it's more than the info I had gather before, maybe some other cyclist found super good shortcuts, but I prefer the scenery road.

I was hoping you'd ride faster I live in Coyhaique at a nice campo with hot showers, internet and all the comforts one can expect in the Aysen region, where you would have been more than welcome to stay. Unfortunately, we are closed for the season and now I am in Peru.

A few months ago I was researching a similar ride and after poring over maps of Patagonia, my conclusion was that an unsupported unicycle tour in Patagonia was impossible. I guess not. Good luck.

P.S.- In an emergency, I could get friends to help you in Coyhaique.

Oh no!! Well, El Chalten was really nice so I staid a bit more than I thought + I was dependant on a ferry that is only once a wek.
Right now, I'm waiting for a package that will arrive in Cochrane in 2 days.
Then it's going to take me about 12 days to get to Cohayque.

Too bad we can't meet...

But yep, it's not that easy to do this unsupported, you need the right gear and I'm not sure you can find it around here.

I've haven't given any news in a long time. As I rarely have access to a computer, it's a little bit complicated. I've almost reached the end of my trip, a bit more than a hundred kilometers from Santiago de Chile.

But recently I wrote an article explaining the why (or at least part of it) of my 4500km on a unicycle and thought you might find it interesting.
It's been published in Women's Adventure:
