Maybe see you on the road

Hi Jonas,

3 of us on 2 GSAs are heading from Victoria BC to Ushuaia in late September (6 months). Hopefully meet up on the road somewhere, although you guys will be ahead of us.

Thanks for posting you projected route, it will give me some ideas. Most of my planning has focused on logistics re. gear and bike prep, with minimal look at route.

How will you be crossing over the Darien, we will likely ship from Panama to Bogota. I got a quote from Girag at approx $900.00.

Would be interested on what you find re. shipping the bike from Buenos Aires back North. We are planning to do the same and ship back somewhere to the West Coast of the US.

I am also looking at shipping from Montevideo, unconfirmed rumour indicates that it might be cheaper than from B.A.

Using B.A. as a base (we have a contact) we are planning on doing a Brazilian loop through Uruguay.

I am getting more and more excited as the start date approaches.
