Pan-American Highway extends from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska to the tip of Chile (14 countries) and started back in 1950. US, Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama where we hit the Darien Gap which is our southern target which brinks the Pan-American Highway. Sixty miles of impassible jungle, just past Panama City. (You have to take a ferry to Columbia).
Banditos, the cartel, vehicle breakdowns, poor navigation, lousy margaritas … we will try and keep the blue pacific on the right and coming back on the left (we hope that’s right)! Twelve thousand miles or 19312 kilometers round trip from Reno to Panama and back to Reno. From the Mexican border to the first border crossing (Guatemala) is 2,108 miles or 3393 kilometers.
Crossing the US border at Nogales, Arizona our first overnighter will be in Guaymas, Sonora Mexico.
From there on you will have to stay tuned…
