I’ve decided to ride to Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, at the bottom of the world

I’ve decided that I want to go to South America while I’m on this trip. I mean, I’m going to be a few hundred miles away while in Panama, and it’s just a boat ride to get across the Darien Gap. As long as Oscar and I stay healthy, I think I should have enough money to make it to Tierra del Fuego, the southern most city in the world.

Since I made the decision to take this trip, I knew deep down that I would probably end up going to South America. I was hesitant to commit to trying to do it, and possibly failing along the way, but I really do think I can make it happen after a few days traveling outside the US. I’m enjoying my time immensely, and want to experience as much of the Americas as I can, including South America. I watched a documentary about traveling, climbing, and surfing while I was in San Diego called 180° South. The cinematography in the movie is mind-blowing, and I have to take advantage of the opportunity that I have traveling right now to make it to the bottom of the world.

I didn’t think I would have enough money to make it to South America after traveling in the States, but after a few days in Mexico, I can see how far my money can get me as long as I stay conscious of my budget. If worst comes to worst, I can pick up some work along the way or settle down somewhere and do some freelance work online to make some extra cash.

    I’ve got freelance work, web-design, for you so don’t take a low-paying job (unless you want to). I’m sure we can work something out – the important thing is you make it down to South America.
