Who We Are

We covered more than 245,000 kilometers during our travels,
which began in Iceland way back on 1-1-1999

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.
