Our big plan is to travel the world, but when the time came to decide where our journey would start it only made sense for us to begin in our own backyard and explore The Americas.
After a little bit of research we learned that there is an actual route called the Pan-American Highway (see photo bellow) also known as the Panamericana in Latin America and the PanAm by Overlanders. It starts or ends in Alaska depending if you started in the North or in the South, and goes all the way to the tip of Argentina crossing North, Central and South America with the exception of a small portion (66 miles – 106 km) between Panama in Central America and Colombia in South America that is impassable, called the Darien Gap. To cross the Gap you have to ship your vehicle in a container on a cargo ship. The infamous Gap which consist of extremely dense tropical rain forest and a network of rivers where the only people you are bound to meet are human traffickers or drug smugglers. Only a few adventurers mostly on motorcycles have successfully crossed the Gap with an incredible amount of gear and the help of the local Cuna community as guides and a team of people to push and pull their vehicles!
We are following the Pan-Am with as many detour as possible.
