Ernesto “Che” Guevara, the Argentine revolutionary, famously toured around South America with his friend, Alberto Granado, on a motorcycle dubbed “The Mighty One,” or “La Poderosa.” While Guevara eventually abandoned the motorcycle and made his way by foot, raft, and plane to Miami, he did not go quite as far as Alex Chacon: Chacon started in Alaska and made his way, over the course of 500 days, to the tip of Argentina.

Chacon was good enough to film the entire trip and cram it into a gorgeous video for us to vicariously enjoy. Because let’s be honest, once most of us got to the road shown at mark 1:09, we all thought, “Hell no, I’m never doing that.”
