The preparation for this trip started with a long list of spare parts for the camper. Fortunately with a lot of help from Ben (our local VW store) all 31 kg of suspension parts etc. were purchased in time. Next was mapping out a timetable for the remaining 3 sections of the America’s trip. Going from South over the equator North we had to cross over from summer to summer in such a way that we would be in Alaska in July 2020. Working backwards from there it became clear that we had to have a middle America section at the end of 2019 so that we could start on the final lap in May 2020. Maps and guidebooks were purchased and Jamaliah did an excellent job fitting it in one carry-on bag and a suitcase. The spare parts went in 2 small bags which will be left behind in Argentina.
