Hi everyone -

This blog is a story about 2 brothers on a motorcycle journey.

John and Dan Clemens took a trip beginning in January of 2009 departing from Portland/Seattle with the destination of Ushuaia, Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina. To the southernmost point you can ride/drive in the world. Ushuaia is considered the southernmost city in the world and if you ride about 15 miles out of town you come to the end of the road.

We're back home now - and we had a wonderful trip, met a lot of great folks along the way (and a few not so great!), and learned a lot about ourselves in the process.

We tried to keep the blogs running every day along the way and there is a lot to read here with some great pictures and the "Where are we?" tab above has maps of every day of our travel as well as the entire trip.

In the end - we did about 17,368 miles overall in little over 3 months. We covered 14 countries - USA, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, and Chile. Looking back, we didn't take enough time because it seemed like the last month or so was made up of "ride, eat, sleep, repeat".

Great to achieve a goal like this - best part of the entire trip was having another great adventure with my brother! - Check out our last weird adventure too if you have a minute - Crossing the Sahara desert in a 35 year old ice cream van! - CreamyTreats

If you'd like to read the blog from the start in chronological order - start here - and then follow through the archives.

Thanks for reading and feel free to drop us a note if you have questions/suggestions or you feel like donating a big wedge of cash so we can do another trip! Our contact info is here.
