Next week my bike is due to arrive here in BsAs and I will head to cooler temps in the south. Have a rough list of places to see enroute to Ushuaia and then will turn north and follow Rta 40 north. Side trips as they come up.
The grand plan moving north is to visit a sister in Ecuador, with stops along the way, travel through Central America, buzz through Mexico and land in Houstan where I have siblings. Then it is to a family visit in Minnesota (Aprilish/Mayish) then head home to Alaska.

Hi paul, just curious to know about how you're getting your bike down there. are you having one sent down to you from the states or alaska? I'm from soldotna AK actually and i am planning to come down that way., hopefully get a bike sent down there with me. Just curious how you're managing the logistics. anyways it's been cold here the last couple weeks, minus 30 now. yikes i'm ready to flee south
I am from Anchorage we should get together this summer.
To transport the bike down from Ak I used FED EX. Not alot of choises but at least the operator know where AK was.
There is alot to learn about international shipping-exporting from the US- and the nice FED EX ladies do not know enough. I now know more than the local gals.
It is very doable but know what needs to be done prior to doing it.The people on the other end of the line do not always know what is going on...and you need to trust it is done correctly the first time.
I am using a broker here in BsAs-Sandara with Dakar motos. They have a web site and she will answer questions. Very helpful and very nice lady.
When are you headed down?
I will check back in here from time to time as I travel.
Just has a nice chat with Jeff...good info of what to expect and see. Too bad they are so far out of the city...or I am in the city...
