USA to Ushuaia - Time & Cost Question
Hi all, I have 2 questions please:
1. How much would a trip from the USA (Texas/Mexico border) to Ushuaia cost in USD?
How much money should I have on hand for a trip based on riding solo from Texas to Ushuaia on a KLR650, camping whenever allowable.
My question about cost is based on shipping the bike from Panama to bypass the Darian Gap and Columbia. I am thinking that I will ship (boat or plane) the bike back from Argentina to Texas after the trip.
About how much money can I expect to spend for a trip from Texas to Ushuaia, including shipping over the Darien Gap and Columbia, then shipping the bike back to the US at the end of the trip?
2. About how long can I expect for it to take in travel time on average to ride from the Texas/Mexico border to Ushuaia? How many months on average will this trip take?
Lastly, what are the best months for such a trip? I am learning that at some times of the year the last leg of the road leading to Ushuaia is impassable due to high winds, what time of the year is the road impassable?
I assume that the best months for a trip from Texas to Ushuaia are the summer months in the USA, which are the winter months in SA? Or is that not correct?
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
I especially hope to hear from those of you who have made this trip.
Anyone who has made this trip and who is willing to communicate with me by answering quesitons, and provide guidence in planning, would be GREAT!
