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.

Out of This World Off Roading

Even though some of the toughest and most stressful segments of our expedition have revolved around the conditions of roads we have traversed, traveling down those difficult sections of roads can also lead you to some amazing places. Places that are hidden and inaccessible to someone without a 4×4 and in some cases a large set of balls. In a lot of the countries we have been through, we did not have a choice of whether we wanted to go off road or not. Going off road in many places is simply the only option to get from point A to point B.
