From time to time I will write under this title a few things which I learned during this trip and which are maybe also helpful for other ones to avoid to make the same mistakes :-).
Lesson learned 1:
Exchange before a longer trip all parts which are heavily used. And really all. Do not think that this one little thing will keep a bit longer. It won’t. It will fail on the first few kilometers (or miles) and frustrate you a lot. Believe me :-).
Lesson learned 2:
If your journey drives you over a lot of unpaved roads, fixate the screws of your bike with some kind of screw fixater. It seems to be available and is like a glue. Otherwise you will loose one after the other, especially the ones you really need.
Lesson learned 3:
Check your bike regularly. Best at every stop but at least ones a day. You won’t believe which parts can get loose. Eg the part which connects the wheel with the frame. And failures there can be the end of your journey.
All the best from Puyuhuapi,
