Just after editing this video, I found out that I had malaria. Since many strains of malaria, including the one that I contracted come on somewhat slow, you just start to feel more and more weird and look worse and worse over time. I realize now that I never actually wrote anything to go along […]

New Video â€“ Niono and the Entourage
New Video – Diving the cold waters of Ushuaia!
It seems that in the midst of the last year this video slipped through and never made it online for all of you to see. Lately I have been working to get all of our video organized for a new project in the works. So stay tuned, we will be posting more often in the […]
Can we get some validation please?…Thanks National Geographic
When we first came up for the idea for this adventure, often we would hear from people, â€œThat sounds like one heck of a vacation.â€
â€œHow lucky you two are to be able to do something like this,â€ many would say. Breaking the stigma that we were going on some easy road trip vacation to exotic places proved to be near impossible. We knew, and every day with more and more research, we were absolutely positive that an adventure of a lifetime preceded us. Still, rarely would we find someone willing to listen to our pleading that this was a true expedition that would go far beyond
New Video – Surviving the Bolivian Death Road
Those of you that follow the website have all seen the photos from the “World’s Most Dangerous Road.” Many call this road the “Death Road,” due to the high number of people that die at the mercy of the steep cliff faces that the narrow road skirts as it drops over 10,000 ft on its way to the jungle and eventually to the Amazon in Brazil. This road is equally exciting because of the danger it presents, but also the diversity in scenery. At the top it is cold and crisp with snow capped peaks surrounding the start point.
New Video – Tequila and the Jose Cuervo Plant
In a little town in the heart of Mexico, a long time ago a lightning bolt hit an agave plant. It cooked the plant and later the local people found that the cooked fermented plant produced a sweet juice that made them feel good. Ages later that little town was named Tequila and the drink was too. When we visited this little gem, we thought it would just be a simple fun time learning about how the world famous liquor was made at the main headquarters in Mexico, but what we did not realize is that the drink, and the town have an incredibly rich history and culture. The visit to the town turned into a truly memorable experience after we spent the day on the VIP
New Video – Peninsula Valdes
A while back we went to Penisula Valdes, stayed at a historic hotel, got up close and personal with some wildlife and generally had an amazing time. Enjoy the video
New Video – New Photos – An Argentina Asad0
Just after leaving Buenos Aires, we were treated to two different delicious asados. It has now been about a month since then, and after spending a few hours editing the video together from our time there the experience was that much more intense. Sometimes when you are in the moment everything is happening so fast that you miss some of the little details, but after reviewing all of the video and photos the primitive style of cooking meat here in Argentina it is quite a larger extravaganza than I remembered.
New Video – Stuck in Buenos Aires – A short window into our 6 week delay.
I am still hard at work on the blog regarding the exact details of what happened with the trucks in Buenos. With Fernando’s help we are putting together a blog that will give a better researched insight not into just what happened to us, but more importantly, why it happened the way it did. More importantly we want to give everyone an insight as to why it is such a tragedy that Argentinean government treats not only us this way, but treats all of the citizens in Argentina the same.
New Video – Burkina Faso – TIA – Getting Air in a Tire
This journey has proven and disproved many thoughts and ideas I had about the world. Many of the ideas I have come from movies I have seen. Most of the time when I see an American Hollywood movie about a place I just assume that everything is dramatized and most likely adapted to make the […]
New Video – National Park or Middle of Nowhere Sahara?
When picturing a national park, most of us probably think of rangers that help to protect the wildlife and answer visitors questions about the surrounding area and the flora and fauna that reside there. As you get farther and farther from the main tourist tracks in the world, the standard and definition of national parks […]
