Pretty amazing journey; the video said ~280 days and $15k per person in expenses. Not a bad way to spend a year. Looks like it was sponsored by Jeep?

I saw the start of that first video and I was all "They drove through Burma, they drove through Burma, Fuck yeah they drove through Burma!!!" But they didn't.

Still, amazing journey, and they seem to have connected with the locals (and actually enjoyed themselves) in a way that many vehicle tourists don't or can't.
