How to motivate your significant other to travel overland
Post Provided by Graeme Bell for Expedition Portal: Often we meet people as we travel who would love to explore as we do but have one serious problem: their spouse hates camping. If this is your problem then we suggest that you try the following Travel Indoctrination Campaign (TIC) utilising Behaviour Modification Training (BMT). It would be a shame to go through all the expense and effort of building the perfect overland vehicle and planning the most amazing overland route and STILL not be able to get your significant other out of the house.
Reflections on a year on the road
Post provided by Erica Victorson of Song of the Road: We were not sure how long this trip would take when we left. We had planned for a year to get to Argentina, but found that the pace of travel required to achieve that goal did not suit us. The faster we traveled, the harder it all became. Long days of driving, not much time to explore and the cranky end of day fatigue occurred often when we were trying to move quickly. We found our stride when we slowed down and decided that this trip done properly was going to take much longer than one year.
