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 to South America. We plan to drive across all 23 contiguous countries in the Americas and live out of our car for the next couple of years.
