A 1995 Toyota Tacoma with a cab-over camper

After quitting our jobs, selling our home, and purging most of our possessions, we moved into a tiny truck camper and set off to see the world.

Dodge Grand Caravan sport

Decided that if we were going to travel we wanted the freedom to travel where, when and how we wanted, as well as being able to avoid some of the obvious tourist destinations. So that's when we became acquainted with 'Tin Tin' our burgundy Dodge Grand Caravan sport. He's taken us all the way from Toronto Ontario our starting point to Guatemala where we are today.

Do you have any advice for others who may be considering driving the Americas?: 
Try and buy a SIM card and data plan (usually need one for each country) so that you have a connection to the 'outside' world and access to data for GPS. We have been heavily reliant on wifi connections at hotels and restaurants but have been caught short in countries like Guatemala where you can be travelling for hours without coming across big towns and even then there are many towns where you can't even get wifi.

Meet Lotte. She is a beautiful old granma, an original 1971 Volkswagen Baywindow, Made in Germany on February 21st, 1971. Back then her young skin was Chianti Red, just like wine. Right after her birth she crossed the ocean to Panama. That's what she was meant for from the very beginning: the tropics. She must have had an interesting life, yet I haven't met anyone to tell me her stories. Somehow she got lost in Costa Rica several years ago, before I found her half dead and decided to bring her back to life.

Do you have any advice for others who may be considering driving the Americas?: 
- Being able to speak or willing to learn a little Spanish would be helpful. - Experience has taught us if you plan on living in your vehicle for longer than a few weeks, make sure it’s one you can stand up in. This may not sound important now but it sure will when your knees are killing you from all the crawling and your backache stops you from being able to enjoy the drive.
