17,300 miles is the distance from Los Angeles, California to New York, New York — seven times. It is about 5,000 miles less than the entire circumference of the Earth. It is a number I had only seen on the odometer in my car.

But for Nancy Sathre-Vogel, her husband, and twin 10-year-old boys, Daryl and Davy, 17,300 miles was the distance they cycled from Alaska to Argentina. Yes, on bikes. For three years, the family pedaled and explored the rich history, vibrant culture and diverse landscapes of the Americas, completing a journey that most people could only conceive in a dream.


Rest not
Life is sweeping by
go and dare before you die.
Something mighty and sublime,
leave behind to conquer time.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
