I am expecting to get my family out on a multi-day bike trip this summer but can only daydream about a trip like the Vogel family just completed.
In June of 2008, John and Nancy Vogel packed up their house in the suburbs of Boise, Idaho, and took their eleven-year-old twins, Davy and Daryl, to bike the Pan American Highway from Alaska to Argentina.
Both parents, experienced teachers, "roadschooled" their boys along the way and shared their experiences with other school children through Reach the World.
They arrived in Tierra del Fuego on Monday, two-and-a-half years and more than 17,000 miles later. Davy and Daryl, now 13, are the youngest cyclists to complete the Pan-American Highway.
The family's website documents their incredible journey.
