Unplanned??? I LIKE IT!

Sounds perfect, no plans and just the open road ahead...

I am sure the ride will get better than what you showed as I can look out my window and have a better ride (I Live in Thailand)...

Safe journey...

I'm in!

Looking forward to seeing where this goes. The idea of packing it up and heading south has been rolling around in my head for a while now!

is it just me, but your buddy Franco looks a lot like a young Bob Dylan, especially with the black and white treatment.

Looks like the beginning of an EPIC Ride!

All in!

From a former Bellinghamer to another (actually Lynden, but close enough) good luck, I will be following along. Could not agree with you more about being tired of this rat race. If you make it to Argentina, keep an eye out for a piece of property for me, some where around Salta.

Good luck and safe travels.

P.S Really cool your dad caught up with you.

The idea of ditching the job and hitting the road to the sunny south is going to be awfully appealing to a lot of people ... especially to pale sun starved northerner's who've barely survived the winter .... and for that reason, I'm in.

If it wasn't for a wife, 2 kids the job and a mortgage I'd be doing the same. I hate winter.

Your writing and photo style strike a chord with me, I better tune in to this one myself.
