Where the Road Ends Enters South America

77 days into their trip and they officially made it to South America. With a few bumps in the road, they were still able to make it through the Darien Gap during dry season. Here is their travel stories from the past week.

January 23, 2018 – The last town on the Panamanian side of the Darien Gap is a Cuna indian village called Paya. Here the river “highway” route ends and you enter the jungle proper, so it’s the last bit of civilization you get for quite a while. But while it may be an isolated off the grid spot, the Cuna keep it so immaculately clean that parts of it almost have the feeling of a country club! Sea to Summit – Outdoor Gear #unstoppable

January 24, 2018 – Once we entered the Darien, we quickly realized how much wear the mud was putting on the clutches and engines. Knowing that this wasn’t a quick day ride, we tackled every obstacle as methodically as possible to make sure we succeeded in making it through to Colombia. This video is an example of that! REV’IT! Sea to Summit – Outdoor Gear Black Diamond SW-MOTECH Gerber Gear #unstoppable #hellotrouble

January 27, 2018 – In the Darien Gap, the border crossing between Panama and Colombia is just a concrete pillar known as “Palo de Letras.” Hitting it was a pretty big morale booster for the whole team! Panamanian security forces known as “Senafront” chose to escort us as far as the border, but here they turned back and we were on our own on the Colombian side #unstoppable#wheretheroadends

January 29, 2018 – After a few more days of trekking on the Colombian side, we hit a spur of the Cacarica river that was deep enough for boats. As you can see from the abrupt ending of this video, getting all the people, gear, and motos loaded onto these tiny boats was a crazy, chaotic mess!
