How long will the 2018 Total Return Odyssey last?

I anticipate the drive will take me about 5 months.


Where will you stay?

I will camp either in my conversion van or in a tent.


How many countries will you visit?

The 2018 Trans America Adventure will take me through 14 countries and 2 continents.  They are United States, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina.


Isn't this dangerous?

There is an inherit level of risk in any activity from walking out your front door to crossing a road.  People are people anywhere is the World and I believe in humanity.  The idea here is to be educated about road conditions, demonstration events and make informed decisions. For example, before I drove to Alaska, I researched the top three reasons vehicles break down on the road and made plans to mitigate that.


Why are you doing this?

Have you ever felt like that has to be more to life than just the normal routine?  I know I have and it seems that I have felt that way my whole life.  By creating big adventures like driving 25,000 miles though 14 countries, it moves, touches and inspires me beyond what words I can write on a website.
