I started watching Long Way Up this weekend. What a fantastic show and fascinating journey see – from the tip of Argentina up to L.A. on electric motorcycles.
As a fan of electric vehicles the first few episodes are bittersweet as they figure out how the bikes and charging work. Cold weather shortens the lifespan of any battery, so starting the journey at the end of winter and traveling through remote areas without a solid grid increases the challenge to a new level.
Seeing the beauty of these towns makes me want to visit Argentina and Chile so I can see it with my own eyes. The flight from Japan would be brutal as most flights to South America from Japan transit in Houston or L.A. – so a 10 – 14 hour flight to make it halfway.
