New news from Drive Around the World

Though my stint with Land Rover’s Drive Around the World expedition has finished, the rest of the team is set to begin the next leg of the journey in Australia. I’m sure new dispatches will start up in the next week or so on the expedition website.

In the meantime, the DATW organization has put together some cool new media regarding the expedition, including a great flash intro that walks you through the route of the journey, as well as a five-minute video that includes footage from Peru, Bolivia, and Chile. (The buzz-cut, Carnival-wearied soul talking about Parkinson’s Disease in the video is yours truly.)

In other random DATW news, expedition press kits have started to show up for sale on Ebay, here and here. As far as I can tell, there are no bidders yet.

Of course, if you’re going to spend money on something DATW-related, I’d recommend donating to our efforts to cure Parkinson’s Disease. A pledge form is here, and a donation of as little as $10 puts you in the running to win one of the expedition Land Rovers.
