Continuing my trip south from Medellin, Colombia ==> Ushuaia: Aug. 15 2012 to Nov/Dec
My name is David Parkinson
, and I'm 28, and I'm headed to Argentina starting August 15th from here in Medellin, Colombia. I'm chilling out in Medellin working on my software company before I head farther south. I've been on the road since August 24th, 2011 from Seattle and have already enjoyed Mexico and all the Central American countries.
I would definitely like to meet up with people for the Mexico / Latin America / remote parts of South America and potentially a travel mate for the next leg of my trip.
I'm looking to do adventure on and off the bike: surfing, kite surfing, trekking, cooking classes, learning tango, mountain climbing, etc. I definitely want to do some mountain climbing in Ecuador and some trekking in Patagonia.
I have been stealth camping, hostelling, couchsurfing, and occasionally staying at hotels.
I have a '05 V-Strom 650 named Rosie that is all geared up and ready to go
I'm pretty close to fluent in Spanish though I'm still working on that. I also have decent camping/mountaineering/outdoors skills.
My rough time line is to arrive in Ushuaia by November or December or at latest January... I definitely don't want to blow through countries, but I want to arrive during the "summer" months of further south.
If meeting up or potentially travelling together sounds interesting, give me a shout! I know the road here south is a bit more remote than what I've seen before, so I'd definitely appreciate having a travel companion.
