Hi Derek,
How is your progress?
Are you still hanging around in Montana?
I, and Wayne, are still trying to get away around October first.
Keep us up to date.
Peter

travellers seeking travellers

Hi to all that have checked in on this. I to am heading for Ushuaia again this year. I was there last winter or summer there. This year i am going to go back and do it with my wife. I have gone to Prudhoe bay to the Panama canal and will be leaving for Santiago Chile on January 2. I live in Minnesota and would love to talk to anyone about travel down there. If anyone is traveling across the USA on I 90 hit me up. Larry

When will you be leaving Montana?

Hi Derek,
I am still in Vancouver, but will leave on October first as planned
I'll ride through the U.S. pretty quickly, since my Canadian Insurance will run out on Oct. 8
I will likely ride with Wayne, another Canuck, who also for insurance reasons has to hotfoot it into Mexico.( Sounds like a couple of outlaws leaving town)
I'll keep our progress posted, so we will be able to hook up.
Keep in touch,
Peter

Hi Guys,
The Wheels are rolling; four wheels to be exact.
Wayne and I are in Washington State, riding through West Coast downpours.
We will enter Mexico no later then October 8th, then down to "Barancas del Cobre".
See you on the road.

Any one not going to Ushuaia?

Hi folks,

I'm just stopping for a couple of weeks, around LA. Just done 9,600 miles around North America and would like to wander around South america for a while, trying to keep off the beaten track. Will be going to Baja middle of Oct, then over to Mexico. Keep an eye out for my black, heavily laden, KLR; the wales and UK stickers are a dead givaway. I'll be glad to at least gas a while. A , food and cigarette break are always welcome.

Hi Derek,
Haven't heard from you for a while.
Where are you?
You should be deep into Mexico by now.
We, Wayne and I, are sitting in El Centro,Ca. waiting for tires.
We hope to be off by tomorrow towards Hermosillo and Creel.
Anyone else riding in this part of Mexico now?
We hope to run into one or more of you guys.
Keep your eyes on the road and travel safely.
Peter
