  1. I think you have the perfect Jeep. That is a serious trip! I’m interested to know more bout your journey through all those countries and what kind of vehicle maintenance and repairs you had a long the way.

      Hey there,

      Maintenance and repairs on the Jeep through the Americas? I changed the oil and rotated the tires, absolutely nothing else.
      The Jeep was bullet proof and the perfect vehicle for the job!

    Will be anxiously following your adventure. As a nurse I am curious what first aid and health supplies you planned for your trip. So looking forward to your updates. You are so right you are living one of my dreams. Maybe someday my blue Sahara jk will follow in your tracks
    Good luck and safe travels

      Hi Angela,
      I was a ski patroller for a few years, so I have a few hundred hours of first aid training, including wilderness first aid.
      I’m bringing along my entire kit from that, along with extra bandages, ice pack, heat packs, etc.
      I will do a detailed write-up on it soon.

      Thanks for the well wishes!

    Dan, How impressive! You have great courage and received incredible rewards for standing firm to your dream. Few people can top your stories when sitting reminiscing when we are old.

    tell us more about engine and gearbox maintenance. Moreover how suspension is handling everything

    • Dan Grec says:

      Jamshed,

      I’ll be doing all the scheduled maintenance along the way, and the AEV suspension is handling everything perfectly. It’s heavy, so I take it easy
