The Equator, Gabon
After just over a year into this massive expedition I have reached a huge milestone.
Not far into Gabon, on a highway thick with monster logging trucks, I watch the numbers on my GPS count down to the mighty line on the Earth.
For the second time in my life, far, far from home, I drive my Jeep across the Equator, grinning from ear to ear the entire time. While hanging out at the sign I have strong memories of last time I did this in Ecuador. This time I am happy to get the Jeep right on the line.
Oh Southern Hemisphere, it’s good to be back!!!
I can not wait to see the Southern Cross at night.
In the back of my mind, I know I will cross again, likely many tens of thousands of miles and more than fifteen countries from now, somewhere on the East Coast.
Adventure rolls on!
