What we're doing

In mid June we'll begin an 18-month bicycle tour through South America. We'll start in Colombia and head south through Ecuador and Peru until it's springtime in the southern hemisphere. Then we'll head to Santiago and ride south through Patagonia to catch their summer. Later we'll return north to explore northern Argentina and Chile, Bolivia, and western Brazil. We plan to spend most of our time in the mountains, but are open to where the road takes us.


Yes, this means we've taken an extended sabbatical from work, having put all of our stuff in storage, and we're just about to hit the road.

Where are we now?

We've left California, Clark has left SERA, and we are now training and effecting final trip preparations at Kacia's Parents in Fort Jones, CA. You can always track our progress on this site.

This website, which is still under construction, is where we'll periodically post our photos and stories from the road. Please subscribe now if you want to receive an email from us when we post a new blog entry.
