If you’re reading this, then you already know… I’m pregnant planning a motorcycle journey! This fall I’ll be leaving New Hampshire, USA on my Kawasaki KLR650 and riding down to the southern most city in the world – Ushuaia (Tierra del Fuego) Argentina.
In a few short weeks, I’ll take a career break from a 3+ year tenure at Jetboil then immediately jump into Naults motorcycle shop to gain some last minute experience wrenching on bikes. Then it’s off to a few weddings and rock climbing with friends in San Francisco, Vancouver, Salt Lake City, Missoula, and Denver before coming back to NH to put the final touches on the trip preparation. Finally in late October I’ll be hitting the road!
Once on the road, it will be a leisurely ride through the backroads of the USA, camping along the way. In precisely an undetermined amount of time I’ll make my way into Mexico and continue to slowly head south exploring the small towns along the way until late December when I meet up with my good friend Charles.
- Charles and I were both members of Theta Xi Fraternity at the University of Colorado. He has a long history of motorcycle racing and is finishing up law school.
Charles and I will then head south with a meticulously vaguely planned route through Central America. We’ll then either fly or sail around the Darien Gap and continue the ride in Colombia where we’ll make our way down the west coast of South America. Sometime in early April we’ll arrive at the southern tip of South America. Then it’s a quick 2000 mile windy ride up to Buenos Aires. We’ll either sell our bikes or pack them into a container and ship them back to the States before catching a plane home.
That’s about it… Pretty simply right? I’ll be using this blog to send out updates. If you’re interested in following along, you can subscribe to this blog by clicking here and receive an email each time a new post is published.

It’s going to be a wild ride. I hope all of you will follow along as your support means so much to me.
