When I set out to drive my Jeep from the Northern tip of Alaska to Tierra del Fuego on the Southern tip of South America, I had no idea how much the adventure would change my life. Over the course of two years, my first expedition spanned forty thousand miles through sixteen countries.
Now I will never be the same.
After years of saving, dreaming and planning, I wanted to find out if an ordinary guy can achieve the extraordinary. With no sponsorship, a modest savings account and a willingness to learn Spanish, I threw himself in. Going solo, with no GPS and sleeping in a ground tent, I wanted to experience everything the Americas have to offer. From poking lava with a stick and hiking among world-famous mountains to corrupt military and camping with Ecuadorian locals – every day provided something new.
With my eyes and ears open to the world around me, I met many interesting and thought-provoking characters. With their guidance and prodding, and by using their unique perspective, I was able to learn many valuable life lessons. Running to the beat of a different drum, Latin America was the perfect classroom for me to view our modern work-a-day world through an entirely new lens.
