Hi everyone! My boyfriend and I will be leaving our home in Vancouver, BC between March and April 2008. We'll be driving our volkswagon camper van to South America. Are schedule is very flexible so we may end up leaving a little later but our plan is to be in heading down around that time. We plan on taking less than 4 days driving down the pacific coast of the USA, seeing Central america (quite fast, we'll take our time seeing it on the way home), and then driving though each of the countries in South America. We'll be shipping our van probably from Panama to Ecuador (as you can't drive the whole way). We are still contacting shipping companies so we're not entirely sure on the specifics yet.

Anyways we are hoping to meet people who are either planning a similar trip, or someone who would be interested in meeting up in a certain country to travel safer in numbers. We are also hoping to meet contacts from each country, where we can hopefully have a hand in safely parking our van. Please email me for more information about our trip and any questions you might have. But also let us know if your interested in meeting up with some fun, friendly people!
