Welcome to Tales of the Pan American Highway and thanks for visiting!
My idea to see and explore Mexico, Central and South America started innocently. Initially thinking a friend and I, we’d buy some Land Rovers, take a few months to a year off work and travel, overlanding and camping. Who knew my need for travel, fun and and adventure would and could change my life so dramatically. Discovering Mexico, Central and South America up close and personal by driving a vehicle, certainly has. Initially starting camping trips in the US in roof top tents, now I have fully enclosed truck camper. Visit the vehicle page for more info.
Traveling in a high quality custom-designed expedition vehicle and staying in a combination of campsites and boondocking, this is sure to be an adventure of a lifetime. From national parks, ancient ruins, boat trips and trekking, I’ll be exploring it all, and I enjoy you taking you along. Thanks for coming.
I’ll be taking the Pan American Highway from the USA to Argentina, about a 13,000 mile trip one way. The south bound portion of the trip will start in June 2017 and end in March 2018. Plans are to ship the vehicle back from Buenos Aires to Tampa Florida. After returning to the US part two of the trip is to drive from the USA to the top of the Pan American Highway in Alaska. This part of the trip will start in the Fall of 2018.
My travels throughout Central and South America will take in everything from jungles bursting with wildlife, active Volcanoes, remote villages, Mayan-Inca-Mapucha, pristine beaches and wonderful markets. I’ll explore colonial cities, the temples of ancient civilizations like Tikal, Palenque and Copán. I’ll visit colorful highland markets, salsa the night away and delve into the wild green areas of Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize and Costa Rica, Ecuador, Chile and more. Central and South America is filled with mystery, tradition and outdoor adventures in abundance, and I am looking forward to exploring it all.
