100.000km around Americas by an old VESPA
ciao to everybody!!
I'm travelling around the American continent by a VESPA of 40years old! I'm crazy, but I saw I m not alone here eeheheh!!
I started in may in NYC and I arrived to DeadHorse (alaska)...it was not simple for my small, small wheels the Dalton hwy... but my Vespa was the first Vespa to arrive to the top of continent, I'm proud about it!
now I'm arrived in Venezuela (40.000km done). the plan is to arrive in Patagonia and come back to NYC (about 100.000km)...
I don't know when I'll finish...my speed it s a little bit more than a bike (70km/h)... but I'll finish!!I want to close the circle around this beautiful continent!!!!
If you want watch some pictures here s my blog:

I hope to meet someone of you on the rest of my road!!!
good gas to everybody!

Hi Ilario, it`s really impressive that you are covering all that distance on your vespa especially due to the load you must be carrying and the road conditions along your way. Godd to know you have done great so far. Have plenty of fun. Nice pictures.

Hi Vespanda,

I suggest if you need to find a place to stay on the cheap get hooked up with the couch surf site: CouchSurfing - Participate in Creating a Better World, One Couch At A Time

Good luck with the rest of your trip.. I'm following your blog.

If you come near the Canadian West coast give me a call.
