Wednesday 8th Jan 2014

The count:


gas............................................... .........$27.36
toll.............................................. ...........$2.26
gas............................................... .........$28.11
gas............................................... .........$27.17
toll.............................................. ..........$3.77
room.............................................. ........$47.17

total............................................. .........$135.84

For those paying attention..........prices are for two bikes, two people.

Take for example our room......$47.17 for two....it would be $28.30 for one. Not half, about one third or so.

Now our gas....in Chile it is costing us 28 cents a mile for the two bikes....so with one bike at about 50mpg it will cost you approx 14c a mile.

Your tolls will be half our price, and your food.

In Ecuador it will cost you a whopping 3.5 cents per mile!

Statistic from Colleen


Miles ridden to date: 9,209

Money spent on gasoline, food, lodging: $4,990.

Daily average: (does not include days spent on Stahlratte) $89.11

We have not been able to keep our daily average under $100.00 since we left Peru. Gasoline, food and lodging have dramatically increased in Chile.

To run two motorcycles it has cost us .54 cents a mile at this point including gasoline/food/lodging.

We have been on the road for 59 days including the Stahlratte days which are not considered in our daily averages.

The cost of the Stahlratte for two motorcycles and two people was $2,000.00

If you've never traveled into Mexico, Baja, or South America, you have probably not seen memorials such as these. They are everywhere along the roadsides. ..... It is the last place on earth where the person/persons were alive. Families, loved ones, erect these memorials. Some are very elaborate, some are simple. You will see hundreds upon hundreds if you travel as many miles as we have.
We have seen construction of new roads and they will build and grade around the memorials.

Yes, perhaps 2/3's.

525.....they look really good. I've been adjusting and lubing them.

We have to make a decision in the midday tomorrow, Peninsula, Ruta 40 or east coast down.
