I am thinking of a similar trip but was going to do it the other way round, i live not far from you if u fancy meeting up to chat about trips.
I'm leaving western Canada heading south in August. Rough time frame is Mexico by Sept, Ecuador by Oct, Peru, Chile, Arg. in Nov/Dec TDF by year-end, then spend more time in some places (mostly Chile, Peru, Ecuador) on way back. Want to be back in Canada by June 2010.
Hi, Im from CHile and because of my work (that I hate) I can't go to far on my bike, but if you will be here in Chile on my vacation period (jan-feb 2010) maybe I can join you on your "going down" trip from Santiago to I don't know where in the south. I also know many beautifull tracks from Arica to Puerto Montt, and I will try to travel more to the south in that period (jan-feb 2010). I ride a KLR650
Hey, im leaving Prince Rupert, BC early June +/- the 6th going to St-Johns, NL. Returning for august, either gonna hit up the great North on the way east and if it's still too chilli, will take the northern route on the way back. Will visit each province and territory, doing 2 months of work when I get back, and then taking off for Argentina following the pacific.
Im riding a 08 klr, hope to see you guys on the road!
I left a bit earlier, already on the road in Quebec now.. spending over a week here, then towards the maritimes, heading for Newfoundland. First stop fredericton then Sydney NS. Hope to see some of you guys on the road, was riding with a friend, now doing the rest of the eastern ride on my own. Going to head back to BC for June 9th.
