DESCRIPTION: First time bike tourer, long time traveler. The overall plan is to leave from home and head south. I would like to make it to Panama, maybe to the tip of Argentina. I would like it to last 6 months, maybe a few years.
Don't have a set plan, just looking forward to figuring it out as I go. I like to keep moving, but I also will without a doubt stay a few days at any place that I find appealing. Also I tend to avoid the tourist hubs and aim for the off beaten path. I also have an obsession with documentaries, and love filming interviews with interesting people.
I have limited money and hate wasting it. That being said, I will be pretty frugal, hopefully spending the majority of my money on food and hope to spend close to zero on lodging.
Basic equipment: Bike, 27 year old male, tent, sense of adventure, sense of sarcasm, positive attitude, and a bunch of other stuff that I'm gonna lug around with me.
