On this edition of the RoverGuide Rewind, we zap back to January of this year when we interviwed Bruce Elfstrom, CEO of Overland Experts. This article was originally posted January 20th, 2012, and is a must-read for anybody interested in off-roading or expedition travel.
Even though Land Rover's Journey of Discovery hasn't yet reached Beijing, we couldn't resist choosing our 10 favorite photos of the expedition. The photographers plying their trade along the Journey of Discovery route have done some exceptional work, which made choosing just 10 photos a nearly impossible task.
The Journey of Discovery has passed through a total of 12 countries and has finally reached China, the 13th country on the trip.The most direct route to Beijing from the expedition's current position in Kashgar still measures roughly 2,500 miles. The teams plans to arrive in Beijing ahead of the Auto China show.
Today we have a gallery of photos taken as the team traveled through deserts of Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. So far the team has logged 6,250 miles, which means they have passed the half-way mark. The four Discovery 4 (LR4) vehicles should arrive in Beijing just in time for the Beijing Motor Show.
Land Rover's Journey of Discovery expedition has wrapped up its time in Russia and is now heading through Kazakhstan toward Uzbekistan. Land Rover has also released a new tracking feature via Google Maps that allows you to track the expedition as it moves toward its goal of Beijing.
