2 Adults, 5 Kids, Alaska to Argentina, Every Country in North and South America

Our family of seven left Alaska in April 2011 in our modified Ford F250 that's been converted to run on vegetable oil. We'll drive to Ushuaia Argentina, visiting every country in North and South America. We expect to take 2-3 years for this trip.

We'll be crossing into Mexico this month (Oct 2011) through Texas.

5 Kids!

Wow, what a great trip.  I ran into a person who did the trip with 3 kids around 25 years ago and said his kids are still talking about it to this day.  Have fun!

Estamos en Mexico!

Thank you everyone for your encouraging words and kind comments. Appreciate it!

We are in Mexico! We crossed the border at Agua Priete/Douglas, AZ on Monday. It took us an entire week to drive to Lake Chapala...wow. It's been over 4 years since we drove through Mexico last, and we had to readjust to a different pace

We are loving it though! It is beautiful, safe and a fantastic climate. We did have some mis-adventures (stomach and car troubles), which I'll be blogging about soon. But in the end, it's so worth it. Like my husband said, when we crossed into Mexico, we felt like we were 'coming home'. We love Latin culture.

We've kept a very detailed log of all of our expenses. We did a video detailing our crossing - the process, etc. And have kept daily video for our 'reality show' (for our channel on YouTube). Our aim is to clearly show that Mexico is safe and AWESOME!

Stay tuned for the photos and videos!
