Who Are We?

Hi there! We are Taisa and Ernesto of Overland the Americas. On July 18 of 2015, we quit our desk jobs and started driving our Toyota 4Runner, Sooty, from Seattle, Washington to the tip of South America and back. We drove across all 23 contiguous countries in the Americas while living out of our car for 4 years. We're now back home in the United States plotting our new adventures!
