California to Panama, and everywhere in between.

This blog is about a year long road trip adventure from San Diego, California to Panama - and back.  Jorge, PJ (our dog) and I drove a Dodge 2500, and pulled a 28' Tahoo Trailer.  Along the way we picked up an Italika 115 motorcycle, which turned out to be one of our best decisions.  The motorcycle made it much easier to travel on narrow streets and jungle roads.  We also had a dog cart, that we could attach to our motorcycle or our bikes, so PJ could go wherever we went. 

We had the year of our lives, finding roads less traveled and places we had never heard of.  We explored on foot, by kayak, bicycle, motorcycle and even horseback.  If this type of an adventure is your cup of tea, plan it and get out there and do it.  You won't regret it.
