Return trip?

What's your plan for the return trip? Didn't find it on your blog or posts so forgive me if I missed it. I always wanted to do the east coast and wondered if that was part of the plan.

Great trip, great pics.

Speaking of which, Dave, not sure if you read the tuckers' report, but just today, he had the following to say:

"Still looking for motorbikes to add to our shipping container in Ushuaia, Argentina to Long Beach, California, U.S.A.

Shipping when it's full or early April 2004

Three more bikes and it'll be less than $1200 each.

We have a do all agent in Ushuaia and I can handle Long Beach end."

Not sure if you're selling or shipping when you hit Ushuaia, but riding home from Long Beach is a hell of a lot shorter than riding home from Ushuaia!

I am riding back north up the east coast to Buenos Aries. From there I'll fly the bike to Vancouver where I'll meet it and store it for a bit at a relatives house. I will fetch it after I finish my move to Vancouver island

I have been talking to Mr. Tucker about the container but decided against it as it requires a long absence from my bike

Yes, a friend of mine. He parked his Land Rover and hiked to end

Somewhere between Nanaimo and Comox. Perhaps Bowser area.

Pretty much anywhere without minus 25 and 5 feet of snow will do
