Palm Beach Gardens attorney Mark Frumkes and his dog, Remi, traveled from Key West to the Arctic Circle in Alaska on a 19,865-mile, six-month odyssey across the continent that included stays in Baja, Mexico, and 22 national parks. “The people I met along the way were the best part of my trip,” he said. “They were so welcoming and inviting. It made being on the road that much more enjoyable.”

Of all the things the COVID-19 pandemic snatched away from everyday life, travel was the one that hurt Florida Bar member Mark Frumkes the most. The Palm Beach Gardens attorney, an avid explorer, was itching to take his next great North American adventure.

“Getting back from COVID, I wanted to take my Mercedes Sprinter van on a tour of North America,” Frumkes said. “Entry restrictions in Mexico and Canada made that impossible until earlier this year.”
