In May 2016 Eric gave away all of the little things in life to charity - the car, the clothes, even the barbecue - and departed corporate life for the open road.
Starting out from Los Angeles, Eric rode 30,000 miles from Alaska to the tip of South America. He is now riding from the tip of South Africa to the northern-most road in Norway. Exploring and photographing the world along the way.
...half the fun is just getting there
Alaska to Patagonia
May 2016 - February 2017
The Pan-American Highway. A ribbon of discovery spanning the backbone of the Americas.
My 30,000 mile route traced the Sierras going northward to Alaska until I reached the top of the world - Prudhoe Bay and the Arctic Ocean. Then, southward until reaching Tierra del Fuego in Argentina and its city abreast of the Southern Ocean: Ushuaia.
March 2017 - July 2017
Cape to Cairo is the well-spoken route from South Africa to Egypt, although no one road tracks North. Each overlander chooses the path that fits best for any given year.
At this time, West Africa has road challenges and northern Africa some political difficulties. So my route will adapt as the wind blows.
