So heres the story, or at least it so far. My brother and I have been traveling with our beloved van for about 6 months now. We have traveled all the way to ushauia, chile and now are making our way north! Found the van on this site. We bought the van from a fellow American drove it down to Chile did a lot of work to the van to prep for the trip. Three guys who graduated college in Sothern California bought this van at an auction. It was a grade school van used for field trips, hence the relativley low milage (about 110,000). Here's the original post.
Driving in Colorado is really relaxed compared to a lot of the USA so if you are traveling to Colorado do not worry about crazy driving because everyone is relaxed in Colorado.
The Colorado driving is really relaxed style of driving if you are visiting Colorado and are worried about driving do not be. Every rental car is going to be an automatic and only in Denver Colorado there will be a problem with traffic at rush hour. It use to be really difficult to drive through Denver because of construction but today the 5 lane highway on I-25 is almost always clear unless there is an accident.
Please check out www.indiegogo.com/TheGoodSonReturnsHome to see my project to drive from NY to Brazil! I have 2 weeks left to raise my funding goal to be able to document the whole trip and share it with everyone. Please check it out, Contribute (and get a Perk for doing it), and then share it with your social networks.
I need this project to go viral! Be a part of an amazing adventure from the comfort of your internet connection...thanks for checking this out!
Hi, my name is Kevin. I have been living in Peru since I finished my Graduate studies last Spring. I am looking for people to join me on an motorcycle adventure from Peru through the Americas. I am open to ideas in terms of destination. At this point I will likely travel north from Peru to Equador, Colombia, then into centeral and North America.
Please understand that I am open to all trip proposals. Looking to travel with anyone who is interested.
