Learn how to drive the Pan-American Highway

Dan Grec

Before I had even heard the word “Overlanding” I set out to drive my little
Jeep Wrangler from the top of Alaska to the bottom of Argentina. Needless
to say I had the adventure of a lifetime, and I will never be the same. Over
the course of almost 2 years I drove 40,000 miles through 17 countries in
North, Central and South America.

Since then I’ve become passionate about teaching others to live their
dreams, and nothing makes me happier than hearing from people who
have hit the road.

With that in mind, I’m going to teach you how you can do it too.
As I hunker down this winter in the Canadian Rockies to write ‘The Road
Chose Me Volume 2: Africa’, I will post daily on Instagram, revising my
Pan-American Highway adventure to teach you how a regular guy like me
did it. I will start from the very beginning and cover everything you need to
know to make the trip a reality.

Make no mistake – I’m just a regular person like everyone else. I didn’t have
any sponsors, I had never written any kind of article in my life, my Jeep was
completely stock, and I had a very modest savings account.
Dan Grec
Truth be told I had little more than a ground tent, a bag of clothes, a box of
food, a little hiking stove and a massive sense of adventure.
During the 2019 summer I spoke at 15 different Overland, Jeep and 4×4
events and shows, talking about what I’ve done and teaching others how
they can do it too. Hundreds of people asked great questions, and it was
easy to see how excited people are to set out on their own huge Overland
adventure.

I will start from the beginning and cover how I’m able to save money,
vehicle preparation, planning and logistics. As the trip got underway I
learned a lot about border crossings, bribery, paperwork and a slew of tips
and tricks that helped me have the adventure of a lifetime.
