Jack Stuhler, the founder of Eezi-Awn, is an adventurous man and has spent his entire life exploring the African Continent. After driving from Johannesburg to the UK through the middle east in the early 1999, Jack set his sights on the Americas. He prepared a Toyota Land Cruiser 70 Series Troopy by the name of Tubby for his journey and shipped it to South America. With his significant other, Margaret, their epic journey from Ushuaia to Dead Horse Alaska took over 18 months to complete in 2004/2005. They later returned south to Houston, and shipped Tubby home. Quite impressive for a couple in their 60s. Their adventures are an inspiration for us all.
After a short respite in South Africa to renew documents e.g. Carnet de Passage etc, catch up with family and friends it was time to leave, the South American Continent was beckoning us to continue our adventure. At sparrows we flew out of Johannesburg International Airport arriving in Buenos Aires mid afternoon of the same day – caught up time and grew younger to the tune of 5 hours (wishful thinking!!!).
