About a2a Expedition

In 2012 we will be undertaking an expedition from Argentina to Alaska to raise awareness and funds in support of Malaria eradication in Mother Africa . The family will be traveling in our Land Rover Defender 130 which has been modified for overland travel. The Land Rover, affectionately known as Mafuta (“big one” in the isiZulu language) will be shipped to Argentina while the family will be flying in to clear the vehicle from customs and begin the journey. This is where the fun begins! That’s Part 1!

Trip Start: 2012-01-01 Trip End: .

  "Danananana Mmm Hmm OK, it’s Anna. Mmm Hmm. OK"   Just outside San Francisco, in a town called Chowchilla, in a RV park next to railway tracks, we met Anna. Anna taught us to sing the Blues. Anna is from the Deep South, as she speaks she sings, Mmm Hmm, OK. She and the girls became inseparable in the week we were camped there, deciding which future we should choose for ourselves. We had sent out feelers in all directions and just as we were starting to doubt we found a path. Mmm Hmm, OK.<img src="http://static.wixstatic.com/media/c7d1c0_fc0ad30c1c1446e79d6ab0abaac23bf4.jpg/v1/fill/w_619%2Ch_465/c7d1c0_fc0ad30c1c1446e79d6ab0abaac23bf4.jpg"/>
