Overlanding the Americas

This site is the blog from our family’s two and a half year trip from Denver, Colorado, north to Canada’s arctic, and then south to Patagonia. During our trip we drove 40,000 miles, crossed 116 degrees of latitude and visited 19 countries. Along the way we saw some amazing sites and met wonderful people.

If you’ve come looking for information to help plan or inspire your own overland trip, please have a look around and then get going! You won’t regret it.
