“What We Wish We’d Known Before Overlanding Full-time
Overlanding South America
We landed in South America on Nov. 6, 2022, to begin our overland journey on a new continent!
Meet our traveling family.

Overlanding Central America
Driving through all seven Central American countries in 2022 was a test of our fortitude and flexibility. We experienced constant downpours during rainy season, the tailwind of a tornado that damaged our Jeep, a swarm of flying termites, and sickness. But we also met individuals who showed us hospitality, shared their cultures, and gifted us with a new perspective.
The travel adventures of your dreams don’t have to end when you decide to grow your family. We want to empower other parents to take their littles along and experience the richness of traveling with kids.

Overlanding Interior Mexico
During winter 2019, we moved into a Jeep Wrangler with our two-year-old (who was potty training), and spent two months traveling through the interior of Mexico. We were totally green, totally wide-eyed, and had an unforgettable trip that convinced us of the value of international overlanding.
When we left our life in the United States in 2021 to begin driving around the world, we spent six amazing months in mainland Mexico. This country has our hearts and we can’t encourage you enough to experience it for yourself.
