To drive the panamerican highway and explore the countries we go through
We love having outdoor adventures! We like rock climbing, trekking, mountain biking, mountaineering, jet boating, slacklining, snow and water skiing to name a few!
Now my boyfriend Will and I are planning to drive the Panamerican highway all the way from Ushuaia in Argentina to Deadhorse in Alaska over 6-8 months we fly to Santiago Chile on the 6th of December 2012 where we hope to by a car and then head south to Ushuaia so would love to meet some surfes along the way and do some climbing and other outdoors things.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
We have hosted a few surfers at home in New Zealand and really enjoyed the experience, now we are traveling so we hope to do some surfing while on our 32,000km Panamaericana road trip across the Americas.
See www.kiwi-panamericana.com for more
we enjoy people who say yes to anything and come on crazy adventures with us
As well as the mentioned outdoors stuff we are interested in photography and short films using go pro cameras, Will also has his private pilot’s licence and we enjoy flying to backcountry air strips to get away from it all. We also like traveling on rivers on any sort of river boat, canoe or jet boat.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
When Will an I did a 4 day river trip in a Canadian Canoe down the Patea River and tipped out on the first day loosing half our food and putting a hole in the canoe, we still managed to complete the trip! When we arrived at the ocean on the final day it was such a relief to know we had done it and food was on its way.
On another trip in Wills jet boat we run around at least 4 times the 6 of us having to push the boat back into the water each time, we then had to navigate some pretty big rapids one which put a big dent in the boat to arrive at this amazing little sandy beach at the confluence of two rives where we camped the night and had a fun time with new friends over a few beers.
Another time we Climbed New Zealand’s Mt Ruapehu and spent two nights in a snow cave on the summit plateau which was amazing to see such a large flat pristine surface on top of a mountain.
