live healthy, be happy: I told my mother what I wanted to do with my money, because I needed her card to do it, and that I'd just give her cash... →

fruitellla:

I want to donate the 100-ish dollars that I’ve got to Sin Represas, a charity about stopping the building of dams in Chile. She said it was nice of me but that she wouldn’t do it. I’m literally on the verge of tears here. The one fucking time I think I’m actually doing something, something nice…

thats very kind of you lady

#cause and effect 

the pavent ends, rains increase but my and others travels continue.

under bridges is the only escape from the rain.

met three guys who arrived in bolivia and purchased 3 Chinese 150cc scooters and have need thrashing them all over south america.

lots of climbing and crazy rain till my hands are sore from being waterlogged.

as i head north from Coyhaique i take the old dirt spar of the Carretera Austral.

i catch a french tourist far ahead on the road in front of me on the first photo.

he has had a dog following him for the last 10 miles. He is riding slow and i pass him.

 a few miles later the dog bridges up to me on a long hill and we procead to sling shot

past each other  for another 20 miles!

till i hit a paved downhill and he just cant keep up.

swank-ee asked: what type of camera did you use?


Answer:

I took my Sony nex5 with a 18-55 Sony lens and a fixed 600 sigma telephoto. Nice compact gear. No too heavy to carry on my bike.

Weight

So amazingly enough I gained 5lbs on this tour!
Doesn’t seem like much but I have a crazy metabolism and have never went past 145 in my life of 38 years.
So why did this happen? Pan. Ate a lot of the white bread biscuits they sell down there. Every girl I talked to said they were gaining weigh because of it also. But in inner patagonia it about all you can get.
