Today is the big day. I have announced to my staff and collaborators that I was leaving my job and the company to pursue a dream that has been haunting me for years. Objective: Jump on the bike and try to get to Terra Del Fuego in Argentina from Montreal, Canada! The start is scheduled in September and even if the preparation is well on it's way, I still have a few weeks to prepare the equipment, but above all, to prepare myself mentally to leave everything behind and get into this crazy adventure. I set up a blog (x-plorer.ca) and will write about my journey here because I have benefited enormously from the blogs of other motorcyclists who have made this journey and I wish too, share my trip for the benefit of future of adventure travellers. You'll be able to read my good and bad shots, places not to be missed or others to forget. It is also a way for me to keep track of this unique journey that may be a unique life experience! The next posts will describe the motorcycle preparation process, my equipment, my planned route and so on, until D-Day in September (or before?!) Important note: My first language is French and so, Please excuse the spelling mistakes and funny expression! I'll do my best to make this as easy as possible to read and add lots of images!
