What type of car are you driving?:
Dodge Grand Caravan sport
Summarize your trip in a couple of sentences:
Finally plucked up the courage after years of missed opportunities (and fear) to quit the day jobs and start travelling for a year. 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.
