This has been a long time coming for me, but finally taking my turn down the Panamerican. I started thinking of doing this around 8-9 years ago. Needed to get life in order first (kids on their way in life and retire). With those two items under my belt and the blessing from my wife to disappear for a year, I'm about a week away from heading south in my 2005 Sportsmobile van that I've owned since 2006.
As a way for friends and family to follow along and also to give a little something back for all the blogs I have followed and been inspired by, I'll do my best to keep a blog going at https://pacificadventuresvan.blogspot.com/
. I'll try to post up here on the forum now and then as well.
I will be traveling solo for the most part. Unfortunately, this just isn't my wife's idea of a good time but she will visit me a couple places along the way. Some friends have also said they will visit. I'm delighted that a good friend will start out with me for the first 2 weeks in Baja and already have plans to meet my brother near Puerto Vallarta.
My only real timeline is to get to Ushuaia sometime around mid-November and ship the van back from Paraguay or Brazil sometime in January.
The plan is to make many new friends, experience new cultures, and enjoy the great outdoors along the way!
