1973-74 with my friend Tomas we made our back packs and where eager to see the world. Our plan: hitch hike from Buenos Aires ,Argentina, to Canada. After a 4!/2 months roundtrip and more then 2000 vehicles we reached safely back home. I was 17. Here are a few photos on Kodak film from 1974.

This is superb. I'm quite glad I found this, because I'm doing something quite similar, only for much longer. I write about it and also put photos up: http://www.velabas.com.

ps sorry about the crappy last post!
