As an avid adventure motorcyclist, it was certainly a no-brainer to combine my love for
travel, motorcycles and photography for some epic adventures!
One of my lifelong dreams was to ride a motorcycle from the Arctic Ocean in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, the northernmost point accessible by road in North America, to the southernmost point in South America, Tierra Del Fuego National Park, in Argentina.
In mid 2016, that dream began as I headed north for Alaska - the trek culminating in a nine month, thirty thousand mile exploration of the American West, Canada, Alaska and Mexico.
After a short break to see family and refit the motorcycle for the solo journey south, Mexico and the monsoon rains of Central America were next. The uncrossable Darien Gap between Panama and Colombia required sailing myself and the motorcycle across the Caribbean to Colombia. The route south led through Ecuador, Peru, Chile and Argentina in conditions ranging from heat and extensive rains, river crossings, desert sandstorms in Peru, snow, sleet and muddy mountain passes in the Andes, massive deserts along the Pacific coast and constant 60 to 80 mph winds in Patagonia. This amazing journey through South America took eight months and covered eighteen thousand miles of solo travel.
I blogged the challenges and highlights daily and invite you to relive some amazing moments!
