Expedition Overland series

This isn't too bad. Stumbled across this on the web. Un grupo de gringos from Montana pimp up some 4 Runners and south down to Panama. The rides look pretty nice. Good stories, although, they sometimes come across as a little too do-gooder smarmy, and sometimes, incredibly naïve. If you're headed south of the border(s), you'd think they learn more Spanish than just "gracias" and "cerveza." I just wonder who fronted the dinero for the gear, rigs & travel. What I liked the most was the scenery they travel through. Guatemala & Costa Rica look pretty bitchin. El Salvador must mean "hell on earth". ps: I know it doesn't. Quite the opposite, actually. Waddaya think?
