The World by Road is an expedition that has successfully circumnavigated the globe through 68 different countries, over 6 continents, covering 70,000 miles.  Two years from the start of the expedition, the crew has returned from this epic journey to Denver, CO. Our circumnavigation of the world went from North to South and East to West, spanning the farthest reaches of the road in all directions on the continents. We are currently catching up on editing video, photos and blogs, so stay tuned, the best of the content is yet to come. We are also working on a feature length documentary and book, so look for that at the beginning of next year!

Harness the Sun in a Bottle

Everyday new NGOs and non-profits are started with elaborate goals to change the world.  Their lofty goals often fulfill western ideas of what the 3rd world needs.
