In total, our journey saw us cover more than 20,000 miles. Those miles were covered in the form of a car for USA and Canada, followed by public transport and an organised tour in Central America and a small part of South America. We then switched briefly to a boat as we were forced to detour around the Darien Gap and then back to public transport all the way down to Ushuaia, Argentina via a volunteering stop in Ecuador. Below is a slightly more detailed breakdown of the path we took.
1) 4,000 mile drive from our start point in Valparaiso, Indiana to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska (the most Northern Settlement in USA accessible by road).
2) 4,000 mile drive from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska to Las Vegas, Nevada
3) Crossed the border into Mexico, Belize and Guatemala via public transport (approx. 3,000 miles)
4) 2,000 mile tour from Guatamela to Panama (via El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica)
5) Panama to Colombia by sea (there was no accessible route through via land)
6) Colombia to Ecuador via public transport (approx. 1,200 miles)
7) 2 weeks Volunteering at Mesaronia Animal Sanctuary
8) Ecuador to La Paz, Boliva (via Peru) (approx. 2,000 miles)
9) Overland tour from La Paz, Bolivia to Buenos Aires, Argentina (via Chile).
