hi Jack, I will be leaving NYC at the end of June and ride to San Francisco along the Lincoln Hwy then head up north to Prudhoe Bay and then all the way south to Ushuaia. Bike ships back to Europe from Buenos Aires mid/late December.

What is your timetable to leave San Francisco and to reach Ushuaia?

more about my trip on Ride the World: TransAm 2012 | Facebook

Do get in touch if interested riding some of way together.

cheers, Otto

Leaving New York in October

I am leaving New York towards the middle of October for a 6 month tour of South America, via Central America. That would put me at the Mexico/Texas border at best, around the 21st of October.. That might be too late for you, but an idea depending on the time you want to make... My rough goal is to spend time around Rio and end up down around Tierra del Fuego around the first of the year, eventually heading back up the west side of the continent in spring...

Hello Growler

The best estimate I can give at this point is mid September and I will cross into Mexico from California and then down the Baja peninsula and be in Panama by Mid December and then down into south America any way keep in touch somewhere along the road our paths might cross
