Mike's Pilot Log: South to South Adventure

We were on a truck headed towards General Rodriguez

We woke early and walked to the small coffee bar at the end of our street. Later we met our clearing agent who took us to the airport to collect our trikes. After a hectic search, we found Olivier's boxes, but SAA had not put my trike onto the flight.

After a few hours, a lot of walking around, and some negotiations we were on a truck headed towards General Rodriguez EAA airport about 80 km to the west of Buenos Aires.

Olivier had arranged a Carne de Passage for each of our trikes and when customs saw the Carne, somehow all the doors were opened and everything happened fast a smoothly.

We arrived at hangar 7 at the EAA airfield and were greeted by Santiago, a 29-year-old instructor, his wife and his mother-in-law. They were happy to see us and after opening the hangar and showing us around we were left alone for the night
