So, after a long break in posting anything, let’s catch up on what happened over the last few months of the trip and where we are now.
After making it all the way south to Ushuaia, we headed back north via the Carreterra Austral. We spent some more time in the Lakes District, Valparaiso and Santiago, and then finished the long drive over to Buenos Aires. There, we figured out how to ship the Sprinter back to the US, and spent a month exploring the city (running into other overlanders frequently). More on shipping in a future blog post. The end of June marked the official end of the trip, as we boarded our flights to the US and the Sprinter was headed for Jacksonville, FL.
We spent some time with our families and decided to move to Salt Lake City, UT. Quickly, “normal” life set in, living in a house and going to our jobs daily. We were debating selling the van, but after a trip like this we’ve grown attached to our home on wheels, and Utah offers so many opportunities for road trips that we couldn’t part ways with it.
We’ll use the blog for adding some more information on Sprinter maintenance / repairs / upgrades in the future, so stay tuned! And who knows, Nikki and I are both secretly hoping for a new overland adventure in the near future.
