Remember when we used to write a blog?
Oh you forgot about our blog. That's cool, so did we...
Well much has happened since Guatemala and our last blog post. As a matter of fact, we've officially been on the road for over 365 days now. Yep, that's right. We recently celebrated the 1 year anniversary of our nomadic lifestyle by visiting the ruins of Machu Picchu. An entire continent away from where we last wrote about. You know what the kicker is? WE DROVE HERE. I know, that's still a silly concept. Over 16,000 miles on the clock and we're still on the road to freedom.
Sure there was that stretch of the Darien Gap, where we had to pack our vehicle into a shipping container to sail to avoid FARC guerillas and narcotraffickers, but really that only saved us a few hundred miles. After dealing with port officials for several days, I couldn't help but wonder if we'd be better off driving across thru the gap. Sure it would have taken us over a year, but that almost sounds better than spending a day in Colon.
