Person of the Week: The Dagna Family

With the many people that inspire us and help to make the expedition a success we have decided to start a little segment called “The Person of the Week”. It is exactly what it sounds like…each week we will present you with an individual that has impacted TWBR. This week we would like to call attention a whole family of very kind and generous individuals…so without further ado: the Dagna Family of Bahia Blanca, Argentina.

“Africa, haha, those were some times.” …

A brief insight to our foreseeable future…

I think it is safe to say that most members of the crew are becoming a little stir crazy as we wait to get back on the road. Most of us have been here for two weeks or longer and starting to not believe anyone when they say “any day now”, but as it stands, […]

Held Hostage by Argentinean Customs!

Who would have thought that of all the countries we have been to on this trip, Argentina would end up becoming such a nightmare in terms of having to deal with customs. The trucks finally arrived last Tuesday, already a week late, but they are currently being held by Argentina customs officials for a reason […]

There is a Ship on the Horizon

I am sure some of you have been waiting just as anxiously for our trucks to arrive in Buenos Aires as we have. We finally have an “estimated” time of arrive and that is the 21st of August. Hopefully the ship will arrive as scheduled because it looks like Argentina is going to be a […]
