The long way south 6 months solo drive from Canada to Argentina along the pacific coast.

I feel the need to highlight another ADV trip.  We met Guillaume at Pacific Motosports back in July the day he was leaving on his 6 month trip.  Nice guy, got himself a brand new 2012 F800GS that day and seriously after we got done speaking about his lone adventure he was off on day 1. 

I have been checking in on him and his blog.  He will soon be heading to South America for his final leg.  Check him out….we love supporting “fellow” explorers and at the same time a bit envious that so many riders are out there riding while many of us are working….;-)  Meet Guillaume!


What’s your plan?


In Mexico!


The intended route is below and I should cross to the USA around the 15th … or something around that.
Canada itinerary
