Past Sponsors

During our journey, we had some sponsors help us to make it around the world.  Here is a list of those sponsors that are no longer supporting our mission, but were essential to our success.

Stevinson is a local dealership that has partnered with us as our title sponsor. They have provided the vehicles for the expedition along with financial support. Stevinson was essential in getting us on the road and helping us with parts, support and the most important part…the vehicles.
Toyota will also be joining this sponsorship as they will be rolling us out with their launch of the new re-designed Tundra. In cooperation with Toyota, Stevinson has helped roll out the new truck as part of the expedition. The 2007 Tundra we have driven around the world had no mechanical issues or real problems going through some of the worst conditions imaginable.
Native Energy leverages market demand for carbon offsets to bring on line new Native American, family farmer and community-owned renewable energy projects, Native Energy offers third party verified and certified renewable energy credits and offsets from a variety of operating projects across America and internationally. Through its novel approach of bringing upfront payment to renewable projects for the estimated future carbon offsets, Native Energy enables its clients to help directly finance the construction of specific new wind farms and other renewable energy projects. Native Energy continues to focus on real, additional offsets that provide both an environmental and a social benefit, for both people and planet. More information is available at .
thule12 Thule makes excellent rack systems and has sponsored most of our rack and storage systems for our trucks. Although our rack on the Tundra was a custom job, everything else is Thule. From the rooftop storage box to the extra straps, we certainly have a lot of reliable gear. Thule has also pledged to assist us throughout the trip and will be featuring us on a new website that they are launching.
Emusic is now the second largest download engine on the internet for MP3s. They do things a little different than Itunes and the rest of the competition by giving the users more liberal licenses to the music they download. Emusic has agreed to generously help us in many ways. First they will be giving us music to use with all of the video and podcasts we produce, making our content even better for our audience. Secondly they have pledged to help us monetarily in exchange for promotions of their memberships, so try out a membership today and help us get around the world.
Lonely Planet is going to be helping out with the trip in many ways. The is one of our most exciting sponsorships as we will be working closely with Lonely Planet to do many things. Above and beyond general sponsorship, we will be working to produce content, setup cooperative efforts to promote world travel and more.
rgLogo4 Rough Guides came through at the halfway point in the expedition.  They provided books and maps for the South America, Central America and Mexico portion of the expedition. Their waterproof maps are some of the best we have used on the entire expedition and their guidebooks have surpassed anything else we have used by far.


tabootlogosmall5 TabootArt was our partner in printing all of our t-shirts and gear for the expedition.  We are working together with them to create a line of t-shirts from artists around the world to celebrate the spirit of adventure and exploration.  As a local Denver company we are proud to have them on board and their creative talents will be a much added benefit to the future goals of the educational speaking tour.  They print t-shirts and have a line of artist inspired shirts that are available on their website. So check it out. You can also buy TWBR merchandise on their site, and as new designs are made you will be notified of them, but only if you sign up for our newsletter.
are4 A.R.E. provided The World by Road with a Deluxe Commercial Unit (DCU) for the Tundra and did so when most other companies did not even have the dimensions for the truck. The DCU is made from aluminum and it’s durability and windowless design provide added security for our equipment. The topper design also allows us to access cargo from three sides and includes a mounted toolbox to help us better organize our gear. ARE is hands down the leader in the industry for truck toppers, we would not use anything else.
warn4 Warn has donated one of their world class winches to the expedition. We will most definitely be using this winch in the numerous tight spots we get into while we are on the road. Having the world’s premiere winch company on broad will certainly be an asset to our success.
kata_logo5 Kata Bags has generously given us two of their top of the line professional camcorder bags. They also make body armor and other security products. Their bags are quite impressive and it is easy to see that they put quality first in all of their products. I suppose that when a company makes body armor and products of that nature they clearly have the ability to make high quality, well designed bags to hold camera equipment.
sumolounge5 Sumo Lounge makes some seriously cool and comfy furniture. They contacted us about supporting our project and are now making sure that our team at home is comfortable with some of their Omni Lounge chairs. Since they recently jumped on board to help us out we are not sure exactly what we will be doing together, but one of their seats may be making its own trip around the world. Stay tuned for more info about that.
rosetta_stone4 Rosetta Stone makes excellent language education software. We will be using their software and web lessons to help improve our knowledge of the languages of the countries we are traveling to. They have provided us with online subscriptions and discs for our laptops.
