Newbie air freight advice and an invitation to ride!

Post by Phil corcos » Tue Mar 13, 2018 12:02 am

Hi all,
I’m from Exeter, UK. Happily retired, but young at heart, riding a Suzuki DRZ from Alaska to Argentina mid to end of June 2018. ETA Argentina December 2018. Aim to wild camp as much as possible. Approx 800 to 1000 Miles per week. Travelling light and and an easy enough pace to enjoy the sights and sound and smells.
First can anyone recommend an air freight company that will ship from LHR to Anchorage and second, anyone out there feel like joining me! Spanish speakers especially welcome :)
Phil

Sounds like a great trip, have a look at Air Canada, they do discounted bike shipping if you fly with them
