Reason for taking this trip:
Always wanted to, since flying to various latin american destinations. But I hate flying. Work has become scarce at home and too expensive to stay there with no money coming in... might as well travel!

I hate flying. I love camping and road-tripping.
What type of car are you driving?:
Dodge 3500 Cummins Turbo Diesel, pulling 21' Arctic Fox gooseneck/5th
Did you make any modifications to your car for this trip?:
Too many to list... ranging from tamper resistant license plate screws and locking gas cap, to 'lifting' the suspension on the trailer or programming the truck to burn higher-sulpher diesel.
How did you save up or finance your trip?:
I have worked as a renovation/construction contractor for several years and done a couple of 'flip' properties to pay off debts and save up.
How long do you plan on traveling?:
Where do you plan on driving? :
What were your family’s and friends’ reactions when you told them about your trip before you left?:

English, Some french, some spanish

I will update once we've actually made the voyage... wish us luck!
