Somebody tempt me somewhere.

I was planning a 6 month South American adventure with another traveller. Unfortunatly my travelling bud has had to pull out due to personal reasons. Im not really the solotary traveller type so if anyones got some ideas flying about then im listening. I should have everything sorted and £5k of funds sorted by mid September 2006. Im on a XR650R which can handle anything. Id still prefer to do South America as iv been studying spanish for over a year in preperation but as i say..im open for ideas.

Im 25, single and a laid back easy going kinda dude.

Hey Ted
I've e-mailed you with a thought or two. I'm still working daily on a plan. Skonte's idea of a time frame is interesting but there are other possibilities. I really want to high-light the trip with Buenos Aires, Iquaso Falls, Chile, Peru and Equador. Maybe Starting with BA and ending in Quito.

hi hows it going, i'm taking a ride with two others from the uk to oz via kazakhstan, mongolia and china between mid to end of april 2006. The trips with in your budget and will take approx 4 months give or take. If you fancy a ride out then get back to me, you'll have to be quick though because we're about to start sorting out the paper work side of things soon.
good luck!!
