the corporate runaways

December 29, 2010
This is my buddy Kay on his bike.

Kay and his gal Dachary are on a motorcycle trip. From Cambridge, MA to Tierra Del Fuego, the southernmost tip of South America.

It's pretty mindblowing. They're running a blog at corporaterunaways.com (Kay quit his day job for this.) -- you can follow their progress on the map as well as reading their regular updates.

Man, the cajones this kind of trip takes is really something, and I salute them. Currently they're in Mexico. Already their trip has at times read like a checklist written by Murphy's Law but they are persevering and seeing some really amazing things.

I'd say check out the site, their flikr stream, track their map location, maybe make a lil' Paypal donation -- I did, I think Kay said it helped a bit when his glasses got destructed...
