After a few months, my new laptop and editing gear finally arrived! The first episode in a new series is finally on YouTube and more are on the way.
I’ve added a few bonus photos at the end of this post for you to enjoy!
In the first episode of STORIES I share my Patagonia riding adventure that took place in February 2020. This was the last ride I had before the world changed and I was locked down in Buenos Aires.
I rode from Cartagena, Colombia all the way to Ushuaia, Argentina. This story begins when I meet Ayleen Martinez and we explore the Carretera Austral.
A few weeks ago I completed my ride over the Andes mountains and into Salta, Argentina. It took me forever to finish editing the hours and hours of footage and create the 40+ minutes of video that I posted to YouTube. I finished editing the last video at the airport on my way to South Africa and just realized I forgot to post it here on the blog. I guess it’s better late than never!
I’m currently sitting in a small cafe in Buenos Aires writing this post. I rode from Lima to Cusco, stayed in Cusco for a couple of weeks, and then made the rest of the ride across the Andes and down to Buenos Aires.
After much research, a lot of input, and many hours of research I’ve made my final decision about the route I’ll take over the Andes Mountains. I’m currently in Cusco, Peru and the ride from Lima was very educational; I encountered ice, snow peaked mountains, freezing temperatures, high altitudes, precipitous drops, and a very challenging ride. It was beautiful, but I don’t think I want to repeat it any time soon.
