Short Summary

My brother, Aaron, and I (Nathan) are riding to Tierra del Fuego, Argentina from our home, Chicago. We actually drove North to the UP to make the trip longer. My brother is an Army Veteran who's currently going through college and I am an EFL teacher. We've done a lot of traveling together already, but this is definitely be the most extreme trip we've ever done.

What We Need & What You Get

We're riding our Enduro motorcyles all the way down. We'll be stopping for off road tracks, charity work, and anything that looks fun. We're also making a documentary from the trip and have 2 GoPros and a few other recording devices to help.


We're in La Paz, Baja Mexico and one of the bikes (Nathan's KLR) is thoroughly broken. It looks like we need a new bike, but don't have the funds at the moment. We need your help to make it the rest of the way.

The Impact

We'll be reviewing the gear we get in videoblog format and we'll put the whole trip up on our blog as we go. As mentioned above, we'll be stopping at a few charities on the way and volunteering our time. The first stop will be a Guatemalan orphanage that is currently in the construction process. We want help this kind of organization by physically aiding their efforts as well as bringing more attention to their needs by incereasing awareness.
