    Hi Mike
    Fairbanks eh? It’s been a while, but I think I remember you from Go’North, right?
    Well the trip has certainly been amazing so far. We’ve met a lot of really nice people everywhere we’ve been and seen some of the most amazing scenery and landscapes.
    We’re momentarily in Cali, Colombia but will continue towards Equador tomorrow. Within the next week we will enter Peru in order to get to Copiapo in Chile by January 7th. That’s when the 2012 Dakar Rally has it’s resting day and we will go and visit some of the participants.
    This unfortunately also means that we won’t meet in Peru if your plan is to get there in February. We have return tickets from Buenos Aires to Copenhagen February 26th. which will be the end of our journey.
    Thanks for stopping by though and have a safe trip to Peru.

    Hey guys! I love your website. After meeting you way up in Fairbanks, it’s great to be able to follow along with the rest of your amazing trip.

    I’m going to be in Peru in February, perhaps our paths with cross a second time 🙂 In the meantime, I’m going to distract myself from work by looking through more of your photos. Safe and happy travels!

    Hello!!! You might not remember me spacifically however my friend Lee met you two in Moab when you were assesing your bike repairs at the shop. He was there changing a tire. I believe it was the next day when you two came to the raffle at the Rawhyde Adventure Challenge, where we officially met.

    Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and wish you two the best of luck, I wish I was going with you!!! Remember, go slow in the late evening, that’s when the dear don’t know what to do because they are hungry!! LOL!!

    I wish you the best of luck, let us know when you come back out west and we can show you the strange and interesting of Death Valley California!!

    Cheers,

    Paul Calisto
