Bike It Solo
Emmanuel Gentinetta ride from Prudhoe Bay Alaska to Ushuaia, Argentina. Sound familiar? We were kind enough to allow Emmanuel to blaze the trail, and become the youngest and fastest to complete the journey. His journal entries have helped to enlighten us about what lays ahead and the many the does and do nots associated with our ride. Thanks Emmanuel.
The Road South
Nick Lenzmeier's Pan-American Odyssey by Bicycle. Nick, like us, subscribes to a strict Bedouin/nomadic way of life. His goals for the trip, were in his words, "identical to those of all my past trips--to enjoy the physical benefits of daily bicycle travel and to experience local cultures/communities/geography in a way that only cycling affords." We couldn't have said it any better. Nick has helped to deepen our understanding of the challenges and the rewards that face us on the road ahead.
Ribbons of Road
Brooks and Gregg are out there somewhere on the road, and like us, they are cycling southward towards Argentina. No one from either side has officially called it a race yet, but its been an international game of leap frog since day three of the trip when we first met them on the Dalton Highway. We are determined to get to Tierra Del Fuego first, never the less, we support them in their goal to raise $20,000 to fight diabetes.
Lost on Earth
We met Steve over breakfast at a B&B just outside Tok, Alaska. He has been on his motorcycle for 647 days and counting, criss-crossing South, Central and North America, and he's just getting warmed up. Steve has had an amazing run so far and collected enough stories and "strange rashes" to fill a couple books...and medical texts. We got the skinny on South America from Steve and look forward to eating three-toed sloth on a brazilian river boat. Yum! Great site with great pics and even better stories. We are looking forward to hearing about the next leg of his journey.

The bible of alternative energy. Don't be fooled, we're not hippies, we just like the idea of preserving the environment, decreasing our dependency on foreign oil, and saving a couple bucks in the process. It makes sense no matter how you spin it.
