Gregg Bleakney’s dream was to travel the Americas from top to bottom. He got this idea after he finished a 1,600 kilometer (1,000 meter) bike ride. Gregg's friend, Brooks Allen, was also a cyclist. The two friends talked and slowly formed a plan: they would travel from Alaska to Argentina—by bike.
To pay for the trip, Gregg and Brooks worked and saved their money for years. Once they were on the road, they often camped outdoors and stayed in hostels. In many places, local people opened their homes to the two friends and gave them food. During their trip, Gregg and Brooks cycled through deserts, rainforests, and mountains. They visited modern cities and ancient ruins such as Machu Picchu in Peru. And everywhere they went, they met other cyclists from all over the world.
In May 2007—two years, twelve countries, and over 30,500 km (19,000 miles) later—Gregg eventually reached Ushuaia, Argentina, the southernmost city in the world. Before this, when getting near Guatemala, Brooks had to return to the U.S., and Gregg continued without him.
The trip taught both men a lot about traveling, especially if you travel abroad. What did they learn? Here is some of Gregg’s advice: travel light, be flexible, and be polite. The last advice comes from another smart traveler who once told Gregg,” Always remember that nobody wants to fight, cheat or rob a nice guy. ”
