Monkeys on the Road - One family's vanlife adventure driving from the USA to South America Presented by Mary Hollendoner

After a decade in the corporate rat race, Mary was ready for a change. So she and her husband quit their jobs, pulled their six-year-old daughter out of school, and moved into an old camper van. They planned to take a year off to drive from California to Argentina in search of a simpler life. What followed were three-and-a-half years of heartwarming personal encounters, breathtaking wilderness campsites, and occasionally terrifying situations. They were surrounded by an angry mob in Mexico, their van’s battery exploded on a highway in Colombia, and they got stuck in Bolivia when a revolution erupted around them. But overwhelmingly their experience was of local people welcoming them and teaching them about generosity and priorities in life. Join Mary for a presentation full of stories and photos about this trip. You may also want to read her bestselling, award-winning book about these adventures: “Monkeys on the Road.”
