14. 09-28-12: S. America Packing List

I’ve received many questions about what one packs for a motorcycle journey around the world. In reality it is only possible to partially pack for a continent. No matter how experienced a traveler you may be, the contents of your pack will always fluctuate the further you go on your trip. The following is a list of things I started with. Eventually, what was extraneous was tossed, and what was missing bought.
