On two BMW's with a food budget of 5 bucks a day for both of us we started in Vancouver and headed North, our intended destination....South. We both quit good jobs and sold all our personal belongings, we've overpacked the bikes and said goodbye for the last time. With no home, no material stuff left we headed out to find people and places and interesting things. That was June 1st 2010 and we've covered over 30000 kms so far, met other travelers and managed to stay... almost on budget. Our goal is not and will not be to hammer from point to point since we effectively have no time limit the golden rule applies, you either have time or money, and so with time there is less expense in the now. Stopping to smell the proverbial roses becomes a necessity and people met are simply amazing and without an honest way of describing. This wasn't intended as a trip of self discovery but it's turning out that way. With one odd coincidence after another our ideas of the world are changing and being solidfied, I can only hope that the great fortune we've found so far follows us deeper into the Americas. In the end, we'll get what we need, good or bad. It's a little late in the game to start posting on ADV but if folks want to hang out with us then I can do my best to post here, we could probably use the input and advice as we slip south past the bandito's and corrupt officials. Let me know.
