Liam Garner, an 18-year-old high school grad from California, is going viral for becoming the youngest person to attempt to bike the Pan American highway. The Pan American highway runs from the Arctic Ocean in northern Alaska all the way to the southern tip of Argentina, over 20,000 miles long and through 15 countries.

Liam, who has been documenting his incredible journey on TikTok, shared with Ryan Seacrest he started in August of last year and is currently biking his through Ecuador. And, despite getting robbed multiple times and surviving a scary bike accident in Colombia as well as having his passport stolen, he's committed to accomplishing his goal.

So, what does his mom think? And how does he even know where he's going?!
