Arrow Expedition Infinita Highway

Hello Guys,

My name is Leonardo and I'm doing an expedition with my wife for the Americas. We leave day February 13, 2011 in Rio de Janeiro - Brazil toward Ushuaia - Argentina (southern tip of the Americas) and we are now starting towards the north to Prudhoe Bay - Alaska (north end of the americas). We now have five months of travel and we will go through 23 countries in approximately 15 months. We are in Arizona - Phoenix.
For those who want more information and see our pictures and videos to our website is:

www.infinitahighway.com.br

We are traveling with a Brazilian car called Troller. It is very similar to the Wrangler, but it is all fiberglass and diesel engine.

See you around.

Leo and Dani

Hello Loren85022,

Today I took some pictures of the car so you can see. I created an account on Flikr! The link is:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/expedicaoinfinitahighway/

If you want any pictures in particular can ask!

Like I said, the car is Brazilian and built in Brazil! All fiberglass with a diesel engine 3.0 TDI.

The history of the car is:

It was founded in 1995 by Rogério Farias in Ceará and in 1997 the entrepreneur Mário Araripe (which also operates in the textile industry and construction) company acquires and invests in plant expansion and product line. In these last nine years, became visible only with Troller Jeep T4 today with electronic engine MWM / International 3.0, intercooled 163 horsepower. But it also became an expert in special vehicles to develop the military jeep, car fire, and those destined for the operations in underground mines. The first vehicles of the model that were Troller RF Sport (1997 - 1999) (launched in 1999 as successor to the T4 Sport RF) left the production line with the gasoline engine to VW AP 2.0 114cv (was used until 2001) and in sequence, with 2.8 Diesel engine mechanic MWM 115 horses of liquids (gross 132cv) (2001 until the end of 2005). Since February 2006, however, has made available the Troller Pantanal pickup. With these two products, the company broadened its operations in niche specialty vehicles in which it stood. Later the truck was withdrawn from the Pantanal, and the units that were sold were bought back by Ford, it had problems in the chassis. Horizon In the industrial district, 37 kilometers from Fortaleza, the operating departments of design, engineering, production and human resources and in Sao Bernardo do Campo, the commercial departments, marketing, post-sales and supplies.

I used Google translate to translate it!
Sorry if there are errors!

Abracos e boa viajem

Too bad!

We were in San Francisco for three days and we love the city, even with the cloudy weather.

Now we're in house for a couple of Brazilians in Seattle, we'll stay here for three days too.

Big hug and keep the site going with us!

Hello, we're a little late with the forum because it is sometimes difficult to reconcile the travel and time ...

Around here it's okay, we are in Baja California Sur - Mexico and we love this place, although it is winter here the heat is always present.
There are many attractions here in Cabo San Lucas, water activities, land and air.

Today we did a tour to see whales, it was fantastic!

Mexico has been a very safe country, contrary to what they say the news on television and I think we have a great passage here, the Mexicans are very hospitable.

We have news on the site, check it out!

New pictures on flickr!

And our second part of canada!

Hugs to all!
