Hi all,

I am going to be driving my 1984 Volkswagen Westfalia from California to Patagonia and would like some companionship. I am a male 26 year old California native. I work as a biologist. Let me know if you are interested. My phone number is 9162204801. Feel free to text me. My Instagram is @allfinebyme and my Facebook is Sean Anayah.

Thanks!

And happy travels.

What's your strategy for getting past the Darien Gap?

Ship it across, ferry it, or if it's barely running send it back to the U.S. and continue on.

How much is gas and can you pick me up in South Carolina?! Hahahah...no but really, how much do you estimate needing for that long of a drive/trip?

I was thinking about that this morning.. Depending on how many I can get to come with me I would ask them to find out the cost of a plane ticket for them to their final destination and use that for the gas money instead. So if they want to go to Costa Rica which lets say is a $700 ticket, that would be the cost of gas. This is all tentative of course.
