I tried something similar (Alaska to Tierra Del Fuefo) following the Pan-American Highway. However, I couldn't get google maps to work out the mileage/route because there is a 90km section between Panama and Colombia (the Darien Gap) that does not have any roads and is almost completely impassable.

I therefore settled on a much shorter, less ambitious route (John O' Groats to Land's End).

Good luck with your walk. Hope you get to Macchu Picchu one day.

I LOVE this team idea! What a great way to make walking interesting!

I am going to virtually walk the 3580 miles [flight miles] from Philly, USA to Lima, Peru --- I want to visit Machu Pichu someday...
