Q: Ok, what are you doing exactly?
A: I’m taking some time off to travel on my Bicycle. I’m going to try to ride to Tierra Del Fuego, the southern tip of South America.
Q: WHAT!? Are you crazy?
Q: How far is that and how long will it take?
A: 12,000 miles roughly. I think it will take a least one year, possibly more depending on how much lounging I do on the way down.
Q: Isn’t that dangerous?
A: Yes, but not as much as you might think. The biggest hazard is traffic. Quite a few people do this trip each year and I have yet to hear of a fatality or life-changing injury. I think it’s much more dangerous to do something you don’t enjoy.
Q: Ok, I understand what you are doing, but why are you doing it?
A: It sounded like fun, and it is. I like to travel, I like to cycle, I don’t mind camping, and I want to see what’s out there.
Q: When are you coming back?
A: I have little to no schedules, time lines, or restrictions. This is by design to foster spontaneous vectors and eliminate as many “trappings” as possible.
Q: What do you do when you get to the tip?
A: Hopefully visit Antarctica, weather permitting.
Q: How many kittens are involved in this trip?
A: To date, zero. I’ll let you know as soon as a kitten comes on board with the project.
Q: What are you taking with you?
A: See the equipment list.
Q: How often are you going to update you blog?
A: Whenever I have something interesting to say and can find WiFi. I’m thinking once every 1-2 weeks but I really don’t know at this point. If you have other expectations for me you should reset them to avoid disappointment. :)
Q: Do you need anything?
A: Hmmm. I would like to keep in touch with all of you at home. Send me email with stories from the soggyland, or wherever you are, when you find something noteworthy.
Q: I want to heckle you, how do I comment on your posts?
A: Register for an account. This will allow you to post and will keep the comment spammers at bay.
Q: Why isn’t my question represented here?
A: You didn’t ask or I didn’t remember. Resubmit via email or comment.
