Special Thanks

We had no sponsor support during our PanAmerican travels.  We played with the idea of chasing that opportunity, but ultimately we decided to just fund our journey the old fashioned way with hard work and careful budgeting.

We've decided to fill this page with the beautiful people that have treated us to a beer, gifted us with their hospitality and valuable information.  These are the folks that inspire us to keep doing what we're doing.  Not to quote Bette Midler, but they are the wind beneath our wings...
