Product Description


I traveled overland through South America for 12 incredible months.  I had no idea what I was doing, and every bit of it scared me half to death.

south america overlanding
Hear about the people we picked up along the way

When you read about some of the stuff that happened, you’ll understand why!

It wasn’t until I arrived in South America that I decided to share my travels with both the people that I met along the way, and more importantly, with you lovely people at home.

Those of you who enjoy the “Hasta AlaskaYouTube Travel Series will know that I have always put a lot of effort into sharing the journey

More twists and turns that a South American highway

through video, but I had to learn how to do that whilst I was bouncing around on dusty tracks in the back of a temperamental Volkswagen.  Given that, and that I had to learn how to make videos, largely without tutorials or the luxury of ‘How-to YouTube videos… and the fact that the majority of our South America season was recorded and produced on borrowed equipment, it’s hardly surprising that there isn’t much detail to our first episodes.

A lot happened during that first year in South America.  MURDER, CORRUPTION, LOVE, ANGER, DISASTER, incredible things that had previously only existed in my imagination. I wrote it all down, scribbling away to someday share with you.  That day is now!

I will probably produce a book at some point, once I’ve finished editing all the videos – lord knows so much has happened off-camera, that there’s enough to keep me writing for the rest of my days.

Here’s the first section, available NOW and you can choose how much you would like to pay for it!

    I can’t believe this book is free?! – normally free downloads are like 5 pages. This is was a great read, and so many awesome photos too. Glad I donated for it and I encourage people to do the same. PLEASE WRITE MORE.

    I haven’t read the whole thing yet, but since it was written by epic travel adventurers Ben and Leah then I can almost guarantee it kicks ass. At this point the only thing I don’t like about it is that I’m not in it. Maybe if we cross paths someday and I’ll make book #2. ; ) Travel bold world surfers. : )

    Yes, I’ll admit to being biased. It would be hard to find a better written story of a first person tale of a guy living his adventurous dream and figuring out how to perpetuate it. My bias is enhensed by the fact that Ben’s dream is so close to my own. As a long time VW bus owner, who has also traveled extensively in North America, but who also has aspirations of doing it in Central and South America, Ben and his various and eclectic crew, make me very envious indeed. If you are hunkered down in the Northern Hemisphere waiting for longe days, this is the read you need . If you are enjoying the good times in the Southern Hemisphere, this is a tale that will get you out into the world of adventure traveling, if not in reality then vicariously. Ben, Leah and Alaska, the Peruvian cocker spaniel, as well as all of the various Hasta Alaska crew, are having so much fun on so little dosh, that one cannot help but be fascinated with this saga, and perhaps be motivated to embark on one of their own.
