Presenting... Kids' Corner!

Week 3 in Ushuaia and still no bike. The UPS Customs Department has notarized documents to authorize them to release the bike on our behalf. We are waiting anxiously for Buenos Aires Customs' response. With time on our hands, we developed the following:

While visiting family for Thanksgiving, Christi explained the big bicycle journey to her 7-year-old nephew. Despite her enthusiasm for the adventure, his first, instinctive reaction was to grow saucer-eyes and ask, "Do you HAVE to?" Then, he turned to his mom and re-iterated his concern, "Mom, does she HAVE to ride that far?"

This was, of course, after explaining to him that Argentina is on one side of the globe and Alaska is on the other side. For a kid, neigh, for an adult, this is an incomprehensible distance to cover on a bike.

In an attempt to make the world just a little bit smaller, and as an effort to familiarize kids with geography by following our whereabouts, we've created an interactive page just for kids. So if your kids have questions about us or our journey, please have them post their questions on "Kids' Corner."

Without further ado, we would like to introduce you to our Kids' Corner!




We decided to keep this page fairly simple since time devoted to updates and Internet connectivity will be limited (once we get the bike and start riding).


On this page, kids from all over (and of all ages) can ask us questions. We'llanswer them the best we can and post them for all to enjoy.


A geography lesson is very useful when explaining to a first-grader where his aunt is. We thought kids of all ages might enjoy seeing where we are, too.


Spread the word and help us Raise Awareness!
