Final Adventures

With all the madness involved in my attempts to sell the Jeep I’ve been very remiss in my photo taking duties, so I don’t have a lot to show for the weeks I’ve put in.
Over the last while I…

  • Spend almost two weeks in and around El Bolson & Bariloche. Many Argentineans want to buy the Jeep, though the paperwork is never going to happen. There are also a lot of foreigners here, so I wait expectantly for something to turn up.

  • Hike to the top of Cathedral Alta, the ski resort in Bariloche. There is no snow yet, but that doesn’t top me from imagining snowboarding all the different features.

  • Drive across to Buenos Aires, where there is a solid buyer on the line. I make around 800km three days in a row, which is too much.
  • Hang around BA again, moving from Customs offices to attorneys and back to customs.
  • Take a ferry to Uruguay because the buyer doesn’t exactly have a “legal” status in his passport, so we head over and back just to get a new stamp in his passport. From the little I see it feels like a really beautiful, friendly place. Country number 17 for the journey, although without the Jeep, I’m not sure it counts.

    Awesome adventure! Love hearing that your Jeep was rock solid! I drive a wrangler and it is a lot of fun, always wanted to do something like this with my Jeep.

    Hey Dan,

    Could you please explain a little bit more how you sold your Jeep in Argentina? What kind of paperwork was required? Where do you go for this kind of transaction? Was it 100% legal? Does the nationality of the foreign buyer matter?

    Thanks a lot
