Ok... I rode from Los Angeles California to the southern tip of South America, and back. I started out with a friend from Alberta Canada - Larry is a rancher whom I met when I rode to Alaska a few years earlier and had stayed in touch with. He had recently bought a new bike and wanted to go for a ride. So we set our sights on Tierra Del Fuego. But, he had to turn back in Colombia. Then I rode with Brian from England, Patrick from Ireland, and Damon from New Zealand, from Columbia to Santiago Chile. After that, I was on my own.

This was an exciting trip for a number of reasons. It was over 30,000 miles thru Latin America and the Andes mountains, and I didn't speak much Spanish. There was also the small detail of the Darien Gap. And, then there was "Death Road" in Bolivia - supposedly the most dangerous road in the world.

Anyway, I blogged about the entire journey right here.

Lake Titicaca

Ok.  Again, we headed off in a direction other than “South”.  Off to Lake Titicaca - the highest navigatable lake in the world (whatever that means - possibly that its big enough to get lost on : ).  Anyway, we left La Paz with a couple more riders.  Damon had met up with us again but was still having bike problems.  And, a couple other guys on very small, 125cc bikes also joined us for the trip out to Copacabana on Lake Titicaca.  Bill and Adrian had bought their bikes in Chile and were headed for Canada.  Since their bikes were much smaller, we rode at a very leisurely pace - which was actually kinda nice for a change.
