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.
