From Toronto to Tierra del Fuego starting April 2003
I'm going on a RTW trip on a BMW F650GS, starting April 2003 and the first leg
will be from Toronto, Canada to Tierra del Fuego.
I'm heading straight south to the USA, where I will go west once I get to
agreeable weather and go to San Francisco. I plan to spend about 5 weeks
in the US.
I will then travel from Mexico to Panama (May-August). In South America, the
plan is to ship to either northern Colombia, Venezuela or Guyana. If none of
these options look good in August, I'll go to Ecuador. In SA, I will travel
south on the western side until Ushuaia for Xmas 2003, then back up east to Brasil.
So far nothing odd about such a trip, if it weren't for the telescope I'm
taking with me! This is a regular optical instrument for astronomical
observations and weights a whopping 7 Kg. Apart from the travelling and
having fun, my plan is to give kids a chance to see the sky through a telescope.
