The Drive 66 – Argentina, South America – 2007

I’m here at Jerry and Jeanie Dunn’s house at Buenos Aires. I met them last night during the flight back from Ushuaia to Buenos Aires. Last night was one of the most interesting nights of my life. I went to

The Drive 65 – Argentina, South America – 2007

I don’t think I’m so much preoccupied about the car situation. I’m just anxious to return home more than anything. Today I spent much of my time just doing laundry, eating, using the internet, and shopping. It felt good to

The Drive 64 – Argentina, South America – 2007

I can totally relate to how Che Guevara’s friend felt when he lost his motorcycle. My car was just as much a part of this trip as I was and I was sad that it couldn’t finish the journey with

I FREAKEN MADE IT! I can’t believe that I’m in Ushuaia, Argentina, the southernmost city in the world. Right now I’m listening to Sodastereo, an Argentinian group that recently got back together after 10 years apart, wearing nothing but my

The Drive 60 – Argentina, South America – 2007

The engine is done. I will not be in Ushuaia tomorrow. At the earliest it will be the 7th. I was going about 70 miles an hour on some gravel road and the car didn’t seem to mind it at

The Drive 59 – Argentina, South America – 2007

I hope to be in Ushuaia in 2 days. By this time Monday the 6th, I hope to be in the southernmost city in the world, the end of the world, as they like to call it. I’m so close.

The Drive 58 – Chile and Argentina, South America – 2007

I can’t wait to finish this journey. I’m sitting at the border between Chile and Argentina, at a no man’s land. Apparently, there is a large truck that is taking up both lanes heading this way. This is somewhat annoying
