Question: Does anyone know who the Oldest riders to have done Prudhoe Bay to Ushuaia

Question: Does anyone know who the Oldest riders (two up) to have done Prudhoe Bay to Ushuaia??

I just rode the last bit to Ushuaia with Dick and Diana Hubbard, Ken Wilson a (his wife Shirley did most of it then had to fly home for some obligations, so was not here at the end) As they just completed Prudhoe to Ushuaia two up at the age of 65 !! Wonderful people and great Accomplishment.

We were having the discussion about it. Anyone know if anyone older has done it two up?

Mark, I'll be very surprised if this isn't a record for two up.

Thanks Marty. Coming from you that means something!! Keep me updated on your South America plans!

We were talking at dinner, so I thought that I would post up. Not sure if it should be somewhere else on ADV or?

Horizons Unlimited? I would guess this was the right place in ADV. Tell them to celebrate till someone tells them to stop.

Super congrats on reaching one of your goals.

I am not as impressed with the age or the riders (my riding buddy is up there, too). But I am SERIOUSLY impressed by the age and tenacity of the pillions!

Hey, ladies, more power to you! Your husbands owe you some nice spa time to soak your hurting buts. My wife just freaked out when she saw that picture from Ushuaia - way past a sane passenger's range, she said.
