I am in spirit
I think most in the states don't get enough time off in a year to do more than extended camping trips. It's also hard to travel off the grid long enough to need to be self sufficient for more than a couple days at a time, unless you were stationary someplace (speaking for the US americas).
Glad to hear. I may send you all questions whenever I stay mine. My goal is Columbia to Brazil through Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, and then Brazil. I may go to Chile and Argentina too depending on time.
I'm planning a long way back (going home) in the very near future- currently just N of Seattle and looking to go from
Alaska to end of South America then across to Africa and then up thru Europe back to Ireland
Have LOTS of links of other folks doing overlanding across all the continents, picking up tips etc.
Have this in my backyard right now (its due to ship to Siberia soon)
but will be doing trip in my 80 (maybe with trailer)
