We are Martin and Tom, two middle-aged bikers and earth scientists from Western Canada.

We love geology, back-country camping and adventure motorcycle touring and have combined these passions to undertake a journey from Western Canada to the southern tip of South America.  Over the course of 6 months we will be exploring the length of the Western Cordillera from the Canadian Rockies to the South American Andes by motorcycle. We will be joined by Ron, another biker colleague and friend, in Chile for the last several weeks of the trip. The three of us have known each other for over 25 years; we have all worked together in the environmental and natural resource sector in Canada, and travelled together extensively by motorbike across Western Canada and the USA.

This blog will document our travels for our family and friends to follow along on the adventure.

We would like to thank our respective families for their love and support to make this trip possible, as well as our many friends and work colleagues, who have been providing great encouragement along the way.  Special thanks to grouchomarx for creating and maintaining this website.
