We did it! We made it! We
arrived back in New York, our starting point, on 5 January 2002, just 1101 days
since we departed on our round-the-world, Guinness World Record journey -- Paige’s first World Record, Jim’s third Guinness World Record.
Passing through 116 countries, we covered more than 245,000 kilometers
during our travels, which began in Iceland way back on 1-1-1999. Our
non-stop, self-contained, three-year trip in a one-of-a-kind Mercedes-Benz
took us to six continents, where our goal was to explore as much of the
world as possible at the turn of the millennium, to learn what people and
countries were doing and to see how well they were doing it. We met
extraordinary and ordinary people, drove through war zones, blizzards,
deserts, jungles, faced epidemics, and tasted divine and sometimes
horrible food, while covering vastly diverse landscapes, cultures, and
societies. Along the way, we documented our experiences and discoveries
with photography, video, audio, and written thoughts. So pick a date or a
country and ride with us on our Millennium Adventure.
