Drive Around the World Longitudinal Expedition

Starting on November 1, 2003, a convoy of left California for a longitudinal circumnavigation by Land Rover. The trip is in support of The Parkinson’s Institute.

As I write this, they’re in Ecuador. They’ll head through South America, then around to Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietman, Laos, Myanmar, India, Sri Lanka, China, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Russia, Alaska, Canada, and then back into the continental US with a finish in July, 2004 in California.

The expedition has a Take Me With You! program where they invite “members of the media, sponsors, professional travel writers, photographers,filmmakers, and celebrities” to travel with them for one to two week periods.
