Hi all, I am a long time lurker and follower of epic rides on this site and I have made the decision to set sail in 2021 on the Pan American Highway. A true lifetime dream of mine. There are a few problems I have been trying to nail down, and big one is dates to leave. I live in San Diego, so the southern border is just down the road from me, which makes it all so tempting to start south and then work my way back north. But my original plan was to head to Alaska and then shoot south. The problem is, that I have to wait till later in the year to do the Alaska portion, which delays the trip a bit. So I reach out to fellow inmates and the wise words of those who have ventured this path before me. Thanks ahead of time!
