    I have added a few more sites. There are so many out there!

    I hope I did not bite of more than I can chew .

    I will start adding other languages and completed adventures. Josh, Ihana is an awesome one that we read thoroughly when we started planning our trip.

    Keep in mind that we are on the road ourselves, so posting links will not be daily. Keep the PM's, posts and emails coming. Thanks for the help.

    Let me contribute a favorite: http://www.goannatracks.com

    This is the blog of Kym and Lyn Bolton, Australians who are in the middle of a round the world adventure. Starting in Brisbane, they shipped their vehicle north to Kuala Lumpur, and to date have driven 20,000 kms north through southeast Asia, Nepal, western and central China, Mongolia, and now Russia.

    There's an ExPo thread about the Boltons' trip here
    http://expeditionportal.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=44366

    Kym and Lyn are familiar with Russia. They drove the Road of Bones through eastern Siberia, and on through central and western Russia and Europe in 2007. They stashed their vehicle in England, and returned to drive south through France, Spain and Morocco in 2008. You can find links to their blogs about those trips on the goannatracks.com web site.

    Upon reaching Vladivostok in October, the Boltons will ship their vehicle to USA for adventures in 2011. In 2012, Central and South America are on the agenda.

    The French family of five has become my inspiration.

    They drive through the US, Canada, through Central American, and down into South America. The pictures are great.

    http://ramblewriter.com/ This couple from North Carolina inspired me to prep my 1st gen 4runner for a Pan Am adventure. They've been writing a book of their travels, but I'm not sure if it's finished yet.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think these blogs are from the couple who started drivetheamericas.com . If so, they've worked hard to present good info for prospective travelers. Check it out...
    http://joydrive.ca/ from Calgary to Ushuaia in a '91 VW golf. Impressive they didn't elbow each other to death...not a ton of room in those.
    http://www.thedarienplan.com/ They did the Pan Am in an Ecamper.

    http://southboundhound.weebly.com/ Another 1st gen 4runner (sorry, I'm biased!) driven by Jeff Sarmento with his faithful dog Nota. I've exchanged some emails with Jeff and he's been very helpful. He's currently working on a book about traveling with four-legged friends.

    Thanks red, I knew all the sites you mention except for SouthBoundHound. Ramblewriter and Joydrive are two of our favorite sites (Lacey and I). The reason I have not posted them yet is because they have all completed their journeys. I am preparing a "completed journey" links section. Keep posting if you find more.

    Are you planning a drive? Have a site? Dates?

    Oops, my bad. I overlooked that detail.

    Yep, we officially gave it the green light a couple months ago and we've started planning and preparing the truck. The plan is to wait two years so we have plenty of money to work with...The trip will most likely start at the beginning of 2012, roughly lasting about a year...but that's pretty optimistic since we are doing the drive round trip. I know how easily these trips get extended

    then there is "los Zapp's" who drove in 3.5 years from Argentina to Alaska with a 1928 Graham Page, their book is fun. There website is a bit disorganised, and they are back in Argentina after a trip to Alaska and Asia...
