The Pan-American Highway, a dream or a nightmare?

During one year between June 2004 and May 2005 I had the great opportunity to research the answer on the road from Alaska to Argentinia.

I met the challenge and lived during these 10 months through all ups and downs one can imagine; not only for the bike and my equipment, but also for myself. And always there was need for improvisation.

And I was rewarded with so much:

  • with the people I had a chance to meet
  • with untouched nature
  • with experiences of quietness and loneliness and
  • with new knowledge about cultures and habits

After riding more than 23000 miles on gravel and asphalt, crossing rivers and mountains I got to the conclusion that I was lucky to live my dream.

In this page I have summarized my experiences of the tour and have posted some pictures in the Gallery.
