    Tried the email link it doesn’t work. Contact me I am originally from North Dakota and live in Mendoza Argentina. There will be a place to stay a few days and a good asado waiting for you if you would like. You will like the hospitality in Mendoza. I am also interested in the South American route you are taking as I know roads from Ecuador South.

    Hi guys and best of luck on your trip!! I will follow your journey. Quick question for you all, I saw in the Grand Forks Herald today that you grew up on a farm around Starkweather, but I was wondering if you were from the Berg family that also purchased in 1988 the large home just across the street (west) from the Starkweather school ?

    • My uncle Robert and his wife Mary Beth purchased that house many years ago. Recently they sold it to one of our cousins, Chris Berg, and his young family.

  8. My class was so excited to read the ‘accounting’ of your trip. They hope you will keep doing that once in a while. They also hope that you have good weather and good roads to ride on.

  9. Hey Guys,

    End of October in San Francisco works for me.
    As stated before, you are more than welcome to recover at my place.
    There are more restaurants/cafes/bakeries in walking distance than you can imagine.
    When you get closer let me know your ETA.

    Stay safe

  15. Brothers Berg,
    Great to finally have time to peruse your blog and delighted to find we have some common threads besides our faith. Although I was born in San Francisco and raised in Fort Bragg, CA where I met you and rode short time with you, we lived in Minneapolis area for 17 years and my dad’s family is from Adams, ND ( 1 hour north of Grand Forks). My prayer is that you will all safely accomplish all the goals and angels will guide you and protect you all along the way.
    Yours in Christ,
    Dale Botsford

    Hello Nathn, Isaiah and David. I was so amazed and proud when your parents told me about your adventourous and unique journey, you should be proud of yourselves. This trip will teach you so many things about life and about the world, learn from every moment. I wish I could join you and enjoy those wonderful landscapes and meet the wonderful people you are running into everyday on your route Bound South, maybe in the future we could all do a trip accross Europe for a similar cause. Ever since I saw a wonderful movie about a motorcycle trip from Argentina to Venezuela by a young doctor student I have been inspired to do such a thing, so through you I will somehow live this dream. Wish you all the best and will be following your journey.

    Best wishes,

    Frederick Tylki

    • Frederick, if you are still up for it in a few years we will all bike across Europe together as brothers. Much love from the Baja.

    We are still following you. Doris Myklebust and members of our congregations still ask where you are and how you are doing. Much prayer for you. Glad you are safely in Mexico, and moving south. I like the pictures, and the scenery is lovely.

    I see from the photo that you guys must have rolled through Huntington Beach (Surf City) a few days back. I wish I had know beforehand, we could’ve fed you and put you up at the firehouse for the night.

    Have a great trip guys – stay safe.

    Had a chance to talk to your dad and grandfather at Bethlehem Lutheran Church and your dad & grandfather were telling me all about your trip and gave me the website which I intend to pass onto our family.

    We will keep you in our prayers for a safe & exciting trip. God Bless all of you and no flat tires!

    I worked at Nodak Mutual Insurance and met your grandfather while I worked there and also now members at Bethlehem. Your dad and grandparents are VERY proud of all of you.

  27. Brothers Berg,

    I just found your blog on WordPress, congratulations on being Freshly Pressed, and good luck for your amazing journey.

    My friend Tony is doing a similarly herculean bicycle trip, from the UK to Ethiopia – Respect to all of you, you’ve got bigger leg muscles than me!

    Good luck, let me know if you’re going to be passing through Belize on your trip.

    Looked up your site when we received your Mom and Dad’s Christmas letter! The pictures you have posted on Flicker are incredibly, totally amazing! Haven’t had a chance to go through them all, but you must be having the trip of a lifetime. As a parent, I’m sure Jim and Elizabeth anxiously wait your every contact and post, and though your trip had receded to the back of my mind, it’s not front and center again and we will be praying for your safety on this journey too. What character, courage and determination you all have — and drawing on each other’s strengths to make it a journey that will cement your brotherhood forever!

    My name is Kristin and I am the new coordinator at the Harwood Y. Your story has been floating around the Y and I finally heard about what you boys are doing. I printed off your bios, and what you guys are doing, and shared it with my Harwood kids. They all say hi, and are very excited to hear about what you are doing.

    I am trying to put together some lessons about your trip, so I’d love an email back with info about your trip. The kids came up with a lot of questions, and would love to hear from you.

    Bike safely!

Even with all the hardships with such an undertaking, you guys will be better for it. I know it’s been a long time, but do let me know if you have any questions about your future route. Take care.

    Hey Guys,

    My husband just met you this afternoon March 4th, in Cuenca, Ecuador.

    I heard that one of you are a little under the weather. Our door is open to you for a comfy place to sleep. Ley us know, we sent an e-mail to you with our phone number. CALL if you want a place to take a break. We think what you are doing is AMAZING.

    Hello to the Berg Boy’s, I am an old STORMKING like your father, I grew up south of your farm,
    I am Dean Braathen the son of Gene and Doris Braathen. when I was at a BB game in Starkweather this past Feb, your father sat down and we had a great talk about what you are doing and I say your Dad has good reason to be so proud! . I have traveled around the USA and Canada in a Truck and have about 3.5 million miles and I think that’s a small accomplishment compared to what you men are doing. I just love checking out your web site and reading your latest endeavors, it’s so refreshing to read and takes me to a place that has peace and love from Alaska to Argentina. Good luck, Be safe, and God Bless. I hope to meet you gentleman some day.

    I’ve missed hearing from you guys! Looking at your photos, I wonder how in the world did your parents manage the farm and household without the help of the three of you while you were away. You young men are such an inspiration. Looking forward to continued updates! All the best to you and your family.
