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.

Guatemala II and Antigua

I pulled into a gas station and sat down at a table outside for a minute just to relaxe.  A guy sitting at the nearby asked me where I was going and we talked for a bit.  I noticed he was wearing a side arm of the auto pistol variety.  So, all I could do was smile when he started warning me to be careful when I got to Mexico because it was dangerous there. I stayed a couple days in Antigua before moving on.
