Day 615 of Our Odyssey Overland


Day615-Banner (2).jpg

Sometimes our journey seems like it happened yesterday, some days it feels like it happened in a different lifetime. Memories can be triggered unexpectedly by smells, songs or the stories of others; or on purpose as we look over our photo and video collection. Occasionally, we challenge each other to name every place we stayed, but we never make it all the way through the list of 258 different cities, villages and campgrounds.

We started getting nostalgic for our trip before it was over. We wanted to make sure we remembered the everyday stuff, not just the pretty stuff, so we decided to take footage of one complete day on the road. The day that we recorded was Day 615. It occurred almost three years ago today. Little did we know just how awesome this day would be.

We have finally compacted that footage into a 24-minute movie, giving you a taste of a day-in-the-life of Our Odyssey Overland.

We hope you enjoy it!


PS: We’ve created a map of the day for those who want to follow along.

The best 80 bucks we’ve ever spent!

A mere US$80 gave us and our two motorcycles entry into every US National Park, as well as many Federal recreation areas, for a whole year. We managed to visit 14 of these gems in the three months we had available. Continue reading
