I have recently finished one of a number of expeditions via the Pan American Highway. I again landed at the tip of South America, which is Ushuaia, Argentina. I have also traveled to Alaska which is 18,800 kms to the north, according to the sign posted here AT THE END OF THE ROAD or as they say here FIN DEL MUNDO / END OF THE WORLD.

I have traveled with many different type of RVs, from class A to the basic converted van, and I would advise anyone planning on doing this trip , to use a Truck Camper,,,it is the best fitted to do this journey.

Also be sure to combine this with a DIESEL pickup. We paid as low as $1.01 per gallon a few months ago on this trip,

I am writing a blog...be patient ..will print it soon... happy camping

I have been using a Lance Camper since 1988, when I picked it up at the old Lance FACTORY, in Los Angeles, before they moved to Palmdale. My second one I also picked up at the new factory, direct from the owner, Jack (forgot his last name), and I did a trial run through all kinds of conditions to the tip of Argentina (Desert Heat, Tropical Rains, Hard Driving in the Chilian Desert, Freezing in the Andes...and so on., it proved to be a great camper.

Long story short.. i still have a couple of Lances, and travel yet throughout the Americas. I have had friends keep telling me to make a blog, finally I am doing one - but what a chore for me... I'd rather be out "Campering around!!!" lol

I am posting the blog, BUT please keep in mind that it is only about 70% finished and I don't fully understand all of the techniques of it!! I do training in some of the less fortunate fire departments in the americas, and do some simple health clinics too.

The blogs are: http://blog.travelpod.com/travel-blog/trekamerica/1/tpod.html

that is the written one, the other is based on the same and is a slideshow, it is:

http://tripwow.tripadvisor.com/tripwow/tp-0021-9a1f-5ffb

please let me know what you think? also remember to check in a few weeks when they are in much better condition.

thanks
