8. Marcio (BR)

Marcio, 43, lives in Rio do Sul, Brazil

We met Marcio the first time on his bike at the gas station in Perito Moreno, Argentina. He told us about his fantastic escape from the rainy adventures in Chile. The 2nd time we bumped into him on a camp-side 500km more south in El Chalten, Argentina. He was 4 days ahead of us with his bike, while we where traveling by car. We had accidentally put up our tent next to his.
