  1. hey Brian.
    loved your 100 days trip episodes down mexico and sentral america.
    My buddy and I just finished building our car and are about to head down the same way from San Diego to Costa rica. Would love to get some tips about crossing the boarders and maybe some epic places we should stop by for some good surfing/exploring.

    PS: you should ad "surf under the northen light in north of Norway" on your Bucketlist. ;)
