I have driven my 1954 33,000 miles and only one downtime due to my mistake. Granted it was mostly on good roads. Best of luck to them. I have watched videos of those roads and I would not want to walk them much less drive an overloaded truck on them.

Just read, and then watched the YouTube vid. All I can say is "Amazing". I trust from the demonstrated YouTube expertise much more to come on the trip. Thanks for posting.

While down in Arizona this spring on our road trip, we ran into a guy from Brazil who was riding his motorcycle from home up to Alaska. It was definitely interesting to talk with him, and we shared some tips about conditions on the Alcan.
Amazing what the adventurous types wind up doing.

Wow!
I also checked out their youtube channel... had to download chrome to translate all the comments.
Is it safe to run a coleman stove in an enclosed space? I suppose they could open the windows.

"Is it safe to run a coleman stove in an enclosed space? I suppose they could open the windows."

With a nice blue flame (which indicated good combustion/low/no carbon monoxide concerns) and a fresh air supply or cracked window it's safe.

Except for the areas controlled by gangs and the cartels, I would love to go on an adventure like that. I hope they make it safely.

It would be interesting to follow their progress and possibly have someone or a group from the Stovebolt meet up with them as they travel through the USA.

Thanks for sharing that with us.

I have been to Mexico a couple of times but would not go there now. The same thing goes for England, France, Germany. I loved it there but the change in the political climate never again.
