Welcome to Sporadic Sojourns. This is the place where we (Scott and Rachael Bryson) will be chronicling all of our favorite adventures. The Adventure du Jour is Driving the Pan American Highway from the top of Canada in Tuktoyaktuk to the bottom of Argentina in Ushuaia! We are driving a Toyota Tacoma named The Joan Wilder. We hope you enjoy following along as we explore the Americas!

About

I think I fell in love with traveling when I was 19 and my dad took my best friend and me on a road trip through Baja California in a cab-over camper. We barely made it down there because California was experiencing a massive flood. I remember seeing the off-ramps of I-5 leading to nothing but water as we headed south. Dad did his best to keep his sanity while we (with the exception of Dad) were mooning over surfer boys and dancing in questionable cantinas. It only took about 20 years for him to recover enough from that trip to travel with me again… Anyhow, I picked up a travel bug early in my life and have been unable to shake it (not that I try very hard).

Hot and Cold and Hot

There is some public land on the east side of Jasper National Park where the only activity restriction we could see was the ban on campfires. I like seeing the campfire ban signs because that means camping is okay. At least that is how I’m interpreting them.
