El Truckito


We're Martin and Amy, the digital nomad duo, and our incredible journey begins with El Truckito, our beloved GMC Sierra truck camper.

As modern-day adventurers, we're stepping into the unknown, exploring the world while working remotely, and immersing ourselves in the richness of diverse cultures. Join us as we redefine the art of living, embracing a life that's free, untethered, and endlessly inspiring.

The Plan


Our bold plan is to embark on a thrilling global adventure, venturing to every single country on our diverse planet.

With a passion for exploration and a quest for cultural enrichment, we'll meticulously chart our course, ensuring no nation is left unexplored. This epic journey will transcend borders and immerse us in a kaleidoscope of traditions, languages, and landscapes, forging connections with people from all walks of life.

Our plan is to approach each destination with open hearts and minds, embracing the unfamiliar, and celebrating the unique. Along the way, we'll savor the taste of a myriad of cuisines, stand in awe of breathtaking natural wonders, and marvel at the architectural marvels of ancient civilizations.

This quest to experience the world in its entirety will not only fulfill our wanderlust but also leave an indelible mark on our souls. As we traverse continents, our plan is to bridge gaps and break barriers in pursuit of a greater understanding and appreciation for the rich tapestry of humanity.

In the pursuit of our dreams, we may encounter great challenges that seem beyond our grasp. But fear not, for the path to greatness lies in breaking these ambitions into smaller, conquerable stages. Let each milestone become a victory, igniting the fire of motivation within us. With each step, we blaze a trail, guiding us ever closer to the ultimate goal.

Stage 1: The New World: The Americas. 22 countries. 2022-2025

Meet the Crew


Traveling in a partnership is an enriching and extraordinary adventure that surpasses all expectations. Together, we form a dynamic trio, where strengths complement weaknesses and laughter lightens the load. With unwavering support and trust, we embark on a journey that fosters a deep bond, strengthening our connection with every step taken hand in hand.

In moments of uncertainty, our partnership becomes a beacon of assurance, inspiring courage to conquer new horizons. We celebrate victories together, and in times of setback, we find solace in knowing we're not alone.

This harmonious collaboration transforms travel into a symphony of shared experiences, deepening our understanding of one another and the world around us. The memories we create are not just snapshots of destinations but an eternal testimony to the power of partnership, proving that the joy of the journey is magnified when experienced side by side with a kindred spirit.

Together, we conquer the world.

Overland

“Which is better; truck campers or camper vans?” This seemingly straightforward question sparked a thought-provoking exchange between YouTuber Joe Russo and Truck Camper Magazine (TCM), each offering their perspective. However, we noted that both responses were undeniably U.S.-centric. While their perspectives are sensible and well contemplated from experience, it leaves out the needs of travelers who are not roaming the well-trod roads of the US or Canada. With our experiences traveling across South America, it is evident to us that many nuances were not considered when trying to answer this question.

Bolivia

If you’re overlanding South America, you’ve heard of it: the famed Laguna Route through Eduardo Avaroa National Reserve, tucked in Bolivia’s remote, southwest corner. It’s legendary within the community for good reason: the high altitude, alien landscapes painted with salt flats and lakes, volcanoes, geysers, and desert; the hardy fauna adapted for the extreme climate; and of course, the vehicle-crippling conditions within the park.
