Driving the Americas
We are currently driving the PanAmerican Highway from Alaska to Argentina with our two young children.
In August 2016 we loaded up our Toyota Tundra and Four Wheel Camper and drove from Seattle to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. Our kids were ages 2 and 5.
A year later in June 2017 we pointed our truck south from Seattle with Ushuaia, Argentina as our destination. We are on a ‘quick’ 7-month PanAm trip; we hope to finish our journey at the end of January 2018. As of this writing (Oct 2017) we are in Panama City, having just loaded our truck aboard a ship bound for Cartagena, Colombia.
