Al’s Gift

Peter had quite the surprise on his bikepacking trip…

“While I was bike touring in Chile I met a fellow cyclist named Allister Knox. We ended up riding about a week and a half together, always searching for perfect river campsites, dry firewood, and good hill climbs. When we finally reached the end of the Carretera Austral, a village called Villa O’Higgins, we set up at a Hostel for a few nights until we could take the ferry to cross into Argentina. Al surprised me with a ticket on this flight the night before we were supposed to take the ferry and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my trip in Patagonia.”
