Southbound 650

I don't know why some cross oceans in boats too small and too fast for comfort.  And I certainly don't know why some, like my son Jesse (in the dark suit) and his mate Andy (the `target' in the Sierra Madre circus) want to ride motorcycles to Tierra Del Fuego.  I would like to round Cape Horn, but settled this weekend for Sands Point.  Jesse and Andy are southbound on Kawsaki KLR 650's.  Jesse left New York September 12.  They have crossed the Sierra mountains in Mexico bound for Patagonia.  Vaya con dios.

Jesse's blog is filled with details and good photographs.  I'll post at landmarks - like the Panama Canal.  Otherwise, you can follow them here at Southbound 650.
