Laugh Denver to Ushuaia on my xr650l

My name is Chris. I was born in Canada but have lived the last 10 years in Denver Colorado. I recently became an American citizen. I've lived a charmed life. Good jobs, good family and great friends. I guess I've always felt a bit wrestles. This year my best friend died of brain cancer at the age of 34. I decided it was time for me to do a trip he and I had talked about doing in our old age. His death made me realize that old age might be my current age. I threw away or gave away most of my things and put what was left in storage. I sold my house. I concluded my business in Denver and I am going to ride my motorcycle from Denver Colorado to Ushuaia, Argentina. I'm hoping to raise some money for charity and have the experience of a lifetime.

Good luck I'll be in South America in December but skipping central and just shipping it down. No time like the present

it's that time of year and the rainy season has ended in Mexico.
take your time in Mexico as you'll figure out it has the best food and places to visit.

Sorry about your friend. When everything is going "right" or even when you go to a party it doesn't make you really think about life or what's important. On the other hand, when someone close dies you really realize that everything under the sun is vanity because we are all going to die sometime - it really makes you think about what is important.

I hope that this trip really helps you understand what is important in life.

I'm excited for you and I'll be following along.
