Answers:
1) Not my forte, but 50 miles probably just about correct, time certainly wrong, really an hour or less.
2) Dunno, defer to nephew santiagov or other experts.
3) Same as above.
4) Yes

I copied your post to his e-mail.

Maybe he is working, or more likely, taking a nap. I'll wake him up, if need be!

About the 5 hours, no way! You can go there from Bariloche in the morning, do a bunch of things, including taking a boat for a nice long ride in the lake and be back in Bariloche in time for dinner. I've done it.

Well, if santiagov says two hours for Bariloche/Angostura, he should know what he is talking about, but that is not what I remember.

About "ttt", I recently asked the same question and the answer was that it means "to the top", as a way to attract fresh attention to a certain thread.

The total distance from Bariloche to Villa La Angostura is 80 Kms ( Not a Highway !!) , a rather small mountain road.

Well, I checked with my Bariloche sources, because I could not believe my memory was failing me so badly and I confirm that going from Bariloche to Villa La Angostura, the distance is about 50 miles and the time of travel is about ONE HOUR, over properly paved roads, NOT mountain roads.

For a map of the area, go to:
