Kim and Mike's Most Excellent 2010 Adventure to Fin del Mundo (End of the Earth)

Soooo...

"What are you two doing this winter? Bikes put away for the season, battery tender connected and fuel drained? You're going to be bored aren't you? What are you going to do with yourselves? Are you going to do anything interesting? You going to keep yourselves entertained with skiing all winter?"

Ah..... nope.

Afraid we're going to continue to ride this winter.






In NH, in the snow?

Well, not quite.

So where are you two going?

Some place warmer in the winter actually. It's kinda headed towards summer this time of year in fact. We're headed to....




Santiago, Chile and thence to Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina.

Along the way we hope to see some of this...



perhaps some of this...



A little of this...



eat a little of this...



ride some of this...



Do a little of this...



That's Kim in the red dress. (I don't know who that guy is... I think she said that his name was Rodrigo and he was just a friend.)

...and finally when we reach Ushuaia, maybe see some of these guys... I'll probably be hanging out with them solo after the Rodrigo incident.



We'll have a Spotwalla tracker up so if you want to follow our tracks up in real time, you'll be able to and it will be active November 13, 2010.

You can find it here:



Until later!

You two are going to have the time of your lives.

Be prepared for big winds on the Southern part of your route though.

Frostbit said it first and said it correctly.

Not only are the winds strong, but they are incessant. There are only occassional breaks in the winds until you get very south and when you arrive there, you can have all four seasons in a single day.

Very interesting weather!

Mr. Cotton has never looked so happy. The multi colored Zip-Tie cuffs are sure to start a new trend.
