We are finally getting back into the groove of "cycle-touring" and maybe even starting to feel like "cyclists." The strong headwinds and dirt roads of the last month have caused us to go slowly and ride for only a few kilometers each day. But the road between El Calafate and El Chalten was good to us. We are really connecting the dots. We're still not going the distances that we did in our ride across the US, but our legs are getting stronger and we're breaking those saddles in nicely.
Aside from the tourist-towns of El Calafate and El Chalten, there is really nothing in this part of Argentina - well, except the flora and fauna of un-tarnished desert, which is really cool. (We saw guanacos and condors and we hear there are many other things that we didn't see, but we are sure that we were close to.) Here, Ruta 40 is the kind of road we dream about - smoothly paved with very little traffic. Happy days.
We also want to announce the roll-out of Project Documentary. That's right - a film! Director Laura Rosensteel has gathered a film and production crew, and this project got a little bit bigger. After all, our aim is to educate the world about the abilities of the blind and to inspire everyone to get out there and do things - how better than from the big screen? (Update September 21, 2012: This documentary film project has been canceled.)
The crew is planning to meet up with us in Santiago, but they need some equipment and things before they can make it happen. So, they put together this IndieGoGo site, which we are posting here in hopes that you will share it and help us all get this project rolling:
