No Gas!!!

Oh my god – I just received this note from my best friend
Astrid here in Buenos Aires…So, this is my situation now….
There is NO GAS in BA… In the whole freaking province…. So I
did 100 kmts and now I am with no gas…. waiting for my brother to
come from 300 kmts (from one of our farms) bringing me gas….. so
I can continue….. ridiculous!!! So the 8 hour trip will be 16
hours….funny…. yes… you might want to reconsider spending so
much time in Argentina… you could potentially hate it! What!!! We
are about to set off with trucks, cars and bikes on the worlds
toughest land race – and the province has run out of gas!!!! I’m
blown away with this. They are going to have to truck gas in from
hundreds of miles away…love Argentinas edge – mad! We had such an
amazing dinner with fabulous Astrid last night – and her bright
optimism teaches us all lessons in life – but laughter of being
stuck in a gas station waiting eight hours is a whole new


About willindakar

Every few years I try and embark on a trip that takes me to places, both physically and mentally, far beyond anywhere I have been before, as a CEO or father. Climbing the highest summits of Antarctica and Europe, diving with Great White sharks, Motorbiking the highest road in the world are a few of the boxes I've ticked - but the trip i am about to depart for should be one of the most testing. Riding with the hardest land race in the world - The Dakar 2011.

    Very impressive. We had a wonderful Christmas with Milo. He
    was a perfect gentleman. Your adventure makes my upcoming trip to
    Florida on my Bonniville seen pretty tame. Safe (and fast)
