1992 Toyota pickup 4x4, "Woody"
Summarize your trip in a couple of sentences: 

This road trip is our chance to get away from planning and organizing. We do so much of this in our businesses that we just wanted the road to take us away. It took a lot of planning to leave, but ever since we've taken it one day at a time. We each had a couple things we hoped to find and they got scratched off the list in no time, now our journey is more than we could of imagined. 

Do you have any advice for others who may be considering driving the Americas?: 
We have repeatedly thanked Woody, toyotas are very common in Latin America and we blend in like locals. Make sure you get all the required paper work at every boarder and that all the info is correct, VIN number! Passports numbers ... Wether they do it intentionally or not they copy the information incorrectly and give you many problems down the road. We discovered the app "maps.me" in El Salvador, it was a nice relief after only using maps and no GPS or data (especially in cities!!!!!).
