i almost did it actually... there is a book on the subject about taking the pan-american highway... and there was a guy in salvador de bahia that had been traveling for 15 months... started in alaska and was riding his bike to tierra del feugo in southern argentina. the only part he didnt ride so far was the darien gap in columbia... mostly cause there is no road and 1 in 3 who enter never return....

Yo, I was going to hitch that, but only as far as Costa Rica or Guatamala. The surf is totally rad in Costa, and it would be a epic expirience to travel on land all the way down there.
When are you going? I'm working now to get to OZ this coming summer, but after that I need something for next winter. Let me know if you need a travel partner...
