One of the most popular areas of our website is the Facts & Figures page and for all you numbers junkies out there we’ve just updated it to reflect our new total days on the road (1,341), amount spent on fuel so far (don’t ask), number of Mexican states visited (28 out of 32 so far), up to the minute route maps, and more fun ways to waste time at the office.
We’ve also added dozens of new wild animal sightings, from spotted eagle rays to occelated turkeys to a tiger rat snake. This got us even more excited about our upcoming opportunity to add penguins to that list during our Antarctic Dream adventure to the world’s 7th continent from November 7-17.
Don’t forget about the EXCLUSIVE 30% OFF DISCOUNT we secured for any friends, family, fans, or followers who want to join us on the small, full-service Antarctic Dream boat for this once-in-a-lifetime sailing. We’d love to see you on board.
I’m loving reading about your trip through America and beyond. I’m wondering about a few things ~ what camera equipment do you use? I’ve searched the site/blog and haven’t found any information. Also ~ what’s up with skipping the middle of America (Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa) for the most part? I’m certain you are having the time of your lives, it sounds and looks like a wonderful journey. All the best!
Hi Becky, Glad you’re enjoying our site. Thanks for the kind words.
I’ve been intending on writing a post about my photo equipment. I’m a Canon guy, primarily use a D50 with a 16-35 f2.8L lens. Love Canon, great lenses and the equipment really stands up to a beating. Obviously, traveling and shooting non-stop mean a lot of wear & tear, not to mention wind, rain, dust, salt, 3 foot drops onto a rock …. and Canon never lets me down (knock on wood).
Don’t take offence to skipping the middle of the country, its a wonderful place, our ‘flying by the seat of our pants’ route just happened to work out that way. We’ve traveled through, around and across it several times prior to our Trans-Americas Journey. The problem is there is only so much time and as it is we spent over 24 months in the USA alone. Have no fear though, we will get there on the way back, we HAVE TO hit all 49 (drivable) states.
Penguins should fall under the “funny category”! But really, they are amphibious. Have you seen how pathetically slow, clumsy, and comical they are on land? They survive because of their swimming, so I say water category.
Thanks Jeff. Clumsy on land because they are BIRDS, who can’t fly, except for in the water.
I agree. Funny category it is.
