The Pan American Highway stretches approximately 30,000 miles from Prudhoe Bay, AK to Ushuaia, Argentina. We plan on driving almost all of it except for the 62 mile stretch of jungle between Panama and Columbia known as the Darien Gap, and the Haul Rd to Prudhoe Bay. Why are we doing this? Why not?
A little glimpse into who we are.
Anaka is a born and raised Montana girl with a bit of Alaska under her skin since 2008. Safe to say I’m more comfortable outside and in the mountains then in the city. My love for traveling was sparked when I was 12 years old with a trip to Vienna, Austria with my grandparents. I am so excited to embark on an adventurewith no time constraints, no itinerary, and endless opportunities to see, taste, touch, feel and delve into different landscapes, people, and cultures.
Ken was born in Pennsylvania lured to Alaska 5 years ago by the wildness and adventures that awaited him.
Easy going, ready to try anything, and go anywhere, Ken is the mechanically minded driving force (literally) behind this trip.
Not having traveled much out of the U.S. Ken is ready to see what else is out there to offer him the biggest, the best, the most edge of your seat adventures he can find.
Together we are more then ready to experience all the up, downs, wrong turns, stops and go’s that the PanAm and the tiny cab of a Ford Ranger can throw at us.
