After over two years of being on the road, we have finally made it back to the point we started from. We are in Denver! It feels good to say, and it certainly feels good to know that we succeeded when many told us it was not possible or that we might fail. While we are completely out of money, the trucks are in desperate need of some help with all the lights flashing on the dashboards

Congrats to the Steve’s. After over two years of driving and almost 70 countries, you made it back home safe and sound. Arrived in Denver on Wednesday, April 8, 2009. If you’re in the Denver area come on out to our Welcome Home Party.
Some of the most interesting things we’ve done recently have come completely out of nowhere. Such was the case when we entered Belmopan, Belize. Nothing at all was set up. We had some food in the back of the trucks, but it was getting late, and we had no place to sleep. Camping was an option, but there wasn’t any campsites in any of our guidebooks. Then we saw the sign, “Ian Anderson’s Cave Branch Adventure Company and Jungle Lodge.” We turned in to ask about camping and ended up being graciously accommodated with their bunkhouse and given a complimentary tubing tour the following day. Things were looking up.
24/7 means 24/7, that’s just how it is on the road. Our crew, by far, spends more time together than most spouses do. We eat together, spend the day together, work together, drive together, do activities together, and sleep in the same vicinity together. It is how it has to be. Yes, it takes it toll, but we need each other, that is for sure.

During our stay in Tulum, our first destination in Mexico, we were fortunate enough to go scuba diving in two of the famed cenotes with Maya Diving. Here, in Casa Cenote, Bouey is doing some fine underwater filming. Nice work, Steve.
