Peru to Patagonia

I am currently in Northern Peru, heading south on my KLR650. My riding partner is about to head back to the states, so I will be continuing on my own. I am looking for another easy going motorcyclist (or overlander) who would like to join up. I am traveling on a tight budget and looking to camp as much as possible for the remainder of the trip. I do not have a set route, but I prefer secondary roads and am planning on going through the Cordillera Blanca, to Machu Picchu, to Patagonia and would like to ultimately make it to Ushuaia. From there, I will head back north to Buenos Aires where I will be looking to sell my bike before heading back to the states.
I plan on completing the trip mid-December. Anyone interested?

Pass you?

My 'Around the Block Moto Adventures' tour group will be leaving Cuzco on Sept 17th heading north along the cordillera to Huancayo, then dropping down to the mountain jungle and riding back up into the Andes at Huanuco. What is your rough schedule for say Huaraz, Huanuco, and Ayacucho in Peru?

Maybe we can meet you and catch a together!

I will probably be in or near Cuzco around the time you start your tour. I will be heading to Huaraz in the next week and then will be heading toward Cuzco to visit Machu Picchu. When will you be arriving in Cuzco? A sounds good!

Anyway, let me know your whereabouts and at lest a is in order!.

Mark, thanks for the offer. I would love to meet up for a leg of the trip. I plan on heading toward Huaraz in a few days (currently in Mancora). Are you going to be passing through Trujillo or are you going to stay in the mountains? How long do you plan to be in Peru? Heading to Chile or Bolivia from here? My facebook trip page is Desde la Sierra Hasta la Tierra if you want to check it out (no blog for me). Hope to meet up.

-Zach

Zalling1,

I will be in Cuzco from the 9th to the 16th of Sept. Note: some roads will be closed due to the Caminos Del Inca Rally. Sept 8-Lima to Arequipa (along the coast), 10th-Arequipa to Cuzco, 12th-Cuzco to Ayacucho, 14th-Ayacucho to Huancayo, 15th-Huancayo to Lima (via La Oroya).

Pasamonte,
You will most likely be a bit ahead of me. I am also planning on riding down through Chile to Patagonia and back up through Argentina. I may bounce back and forth a bit depending on how much of a hassle it is to cross the border. Send me a message to keep me posted on your progress once you hit the road. We will no doubt be crossing paths.
