Looking to drive all the way to southern most tip of South America from U.S. The only thing between me and Tierra Del Fuego is air and opportunity. I could really use any pertenant information about anyplace between U.S. and the southern tip of South America.

Crossing borders, Crossing Mountains, Cities to stop in, Cities not to stop in.

I am also contacting missionaries to see if I can bring something, stop and help, or just visit.

Any Questions, Comments, or Concerns?

the only problem i could see if crossing the border from Panama to Colombia, heard its quite dangerous, you will have to find a way of getting to Colombia other than by land.

i did central america by chicken bus till costa rica and had no major problem ... it was actually easier than i thought ..

just make sure you have the proper documentation and insurance and you'll be fine .........

cheers, carol

Thanks Carol,

Chicken bus? ReallY? Are you from the U.S. What do you have to say about crossing Mexico? Cool Spots, Hot Spots, Spots that give you Spots, What do you remember to pass on.
