46,275 miles

At Santiago's international airport - preparing for airfreight

Santiago, Chile

Replace rear tire

After the 6,500 miles run to Ushuaia and back, the rear tire (Tourance) was shot. Ruta 40 in Argentina gave it a pounding! West of Buenos Aires, Argentina, I picked up a small nail but left it in the tire, as I had no way to patch it. (All my repair kits were used up!) I topped off the air as I crept back to Santiago, Chile. I later discovered the tire had numerous tiny air leaks!
