If you are preparing for your next great adventure, going at it blind isn’t always the best option. Sometimes taking the time to do a little forward planning can help you get so much more from your trip.

Two years ago yesterday we drove away from Jim’s parent’s road to drive the Pan American Highway. Two years. Three Countries. Tens of thousands of miles. And yet we find ourselves back in Los Barrile on Baja understanding more than ever that the road of life is rarely certain and even less often a straight line.
