What makes a man sell all he owns and ride a motorcycle 22, 000 miles from his hometown in upstate New York to the southernmost tip of South America? Some call it craziness; Latinos call it qcojones.q This funny, fast-paced narrative follows a young man in his search for meaning, adventure, and the best rum in Latin America. Battling rough roads, careening buses, and bribe-taking cops in 14 countries, he discovers breathtaking beauty as well as what it feels like to hit a truck head-on. He and his companions for much of the trip--two bikers he met over the Internet--form an unlikely and amusing trio. In the tradition of qRoad Feverq and qMotorcycle Diaries, q Odyssey to Ushuaia is a riot for every reader, and absolutely essential for those planning a similar trip. Loaded with insider information such as how to bribe cops and not lose one's savings, how to cross a border without going crazy, how to handle an accident, and much more, it also features an appendix with the detailed trip lists from all three riders.Lonely Planet Guidesa€”Uruguay, Paraguay, Argentina, Chile Kawasaki KLR 650 repair manual with addendum Clothing Underwear, T-shirts, socks Long-sleeve shirt (2) Short-sleeve shirt (2) Jeans (1 pair) Casual pants (2 pairs) Swimsuit ( 1)anbsp;...
