Patagonia Arizona to Patagonia Argentina on a KLR

Hi all, in a few days I'll be starting my trip to South America. I plan on keeping a video blog of the trip and I thought some people here might be interested in said videos. The first three I've made cover some trip preparation and the test run to Baja, and the real fun will start next week as I begin my drive south through Mexico. Please let me know if you enjoy the videos, comments and suggestions are welcome.

Here is the link to #1, route outline and packing prep:

I enjoyed your videos, and I'm a sucker for any trip on a Gen 1 KLR. Buen viaje!

Don't forget to update us on the 'Budget Challenge', I am curious to see if you could really do the trip with 8 grand.

Rode the BRP over in 30* weather to see him before he leaves, nearly froze my giblets off lol. I'm super jealous, good luck on your adventure!

This is some great stuff, you will do just fine down south. I would suggest you buy some good heated gloves and long sleeve liner for cold weather. If you wear over pants, sweets work much better than jeans to stay warm. Good luck.

You will love Patagonia. Except for the wind. Check out Torres del Paine NP and Perito Moreno Glacier outside El Calafate, AR. Both outstanding places. Also buy gas at every available station.... Trust me.
