Enrique is going to send you a release form regarding the footage of videos. It's a standard form that authorize him of taking videos of the team that protects us from being sued by your grand-grand children in 2075 when they discover the 10 minute documentary of the last 20 surviving teams.


Seriously though, I am hoping we end up with a great documentary we can use to recap the event and promote it for next year, should we do it again.

Thank you!


So jealous sounds like an awesome trip. Just need to win the lotto for next years event, surely some other ancient race has predicted the end of the world next year


Every time I see an old Benz like that I'm reminded of one of the greatest actors and movies of the 90's.
Charlie Sheen and Navy SEALS!
I'll buy Mark and Suna a round of Mexico's best pulque if they show up dressed as a character of the movie. A round of average pulque if they're merely dressed in fine examples of mid-70's fashion.

Skip to 1:34:30 to see what a Benz is capable of.

Hi Christian, I'm new to this site, but been around expedition travel for some time now. Used to do the Border to Border trips back in the day.

I just heard about this maya rally and its really peaking my interest. My only hesitation is that, I can only take off the week of the 17th from work and I'm coming all the way from the north east US. I could probably leave on the 14th the earliest...are there anyone else leaving late? I'm really chomping at the bit here, but I think another group that I can hook up with in crossing the border would seal the deal for me... Any ideas?
