That moment when you say "yes" to a crazy idea. What was once an idea, now started to take on the shape of reality. It was the beginning of March when I was presented with the idea to cycle across South America. I had just come off another three month tour and was already looking for the next big thing. This trip would be demanding. We'd be dealing with language barrier, poverty, and extreme weather conditions. From the time I said yes to this grand adventure, I knew it would be like nothing I had experienced before.
