Welcome to Travels with Rovers
We are in pursuit of unknown destinations, off-road adventure, high surf breaks, tall mountains, and extraordinary experiences. We call ourselves Travels with Rover. Where Steinbeck wrote about his trip across the U.S. with his dog named Charlie, our companion is Rover, our Land Rover Defender packed with an inverter, laptop, GPS, camera, surf boards, spare parts, and camping gear.
Our Destination > North and Central America
After working for a few “start-up.coms,” we were ready for a break from the fast pace, high-tech rat race. For ten months, we followed our own path, stopped at places of interest and stayed as long or as short as we liked based on the environment, it’s people and culture. Our trip began in Northern Virginia, ventured into Canada, and crossed back to the U.S. We visited Utah and the Grand Canyon covered with snow and then headed south through Mexico. We explored Central America and drove to the end of the road in Panama and back.
In the future, Rover will take us to South America, Eastern continents and around the globe. In the mean time, we will introduce you to other Rovers and their stories, as well as our local adventures in the U.S.
