I’m sorry ti hear that this portion of your trip was not what you wished for. Hopefully Chile provides you with better memories. On the upside now you know just how special all the other places you visited were.
I am excited to see you both soon.

Hey there,

I’d like to get in contact with you both for a website that I am involved with http://www.drivetheamericas.com. It is a site dedicated to providing up-to-date information and tips for those looking to drive the Pan-American highway. I have some questions to ask you both, so when you have a spare moment would you mind sending me a quick email?

Thanks so much,
Kelsey

Interesting stories to be sure. You manage to strike a balance between positive stories and negative ones. I saw a propane tank in a couple of the photos. Is it hard to refill in Central and South America? I have heard that it can be a challenge.
