“It is not down in any map; true places never are.” – Herman Melville
In the spring of 2022, travelling independently as a family, we will begin the first leg of our attempt to circumnavigate the world in a Land Rover Defender 130!
We will begin by sending Mandy to Canada in a 40′ container and start our dream for real, in Halifax, Nova Scotia. After exploring the wilds of Canada, we’ll travel up the Dalton Highway as far north as Deadhorse, Alaska before heading down as far south as Ushuaia, Argentina.

In all, it will take up to 2 years and around 60 thousand KM’s of driving, passing through over 20 countries, before we hopefully arrive, covered in mud, at the very southern tip of the American continent….
