The crew is back together to take on the next portion of the Pan-American Highway in this one hour season premiere of the Central America expedition! The crew prepares everything they’ll need for the trip, including outfitting their all-new Toyota 4Runners for the big journey ahead. 10,000 miles, 10 countries, 1 EPIC adventure!
The expedition crosses the Mexican border into the legendary Baja Peninsula! The guys meet up with their good friend Ted Moncure of Toyota’s Racing Development and take on part of the Baja 1000 racecourse as they get some pro tips on off road driving in the 4Runners.
The Crew works their way further south into the Baja peninsula. They stop in to meet Ivan “The Ironman” Stewart while some of the guys are feeling a little under the weather before continuing on the adventure. The Southern point of Baja provides a cool place for the guys to get a dive in, but Kurt and Clay are about to have a sketchy situation.
The Baja ferry takes the expedition across the Sea of Cortez to mainland Mexico. A big push is under way to get across Mexico and into the Yucatan Peninsula. Cool people, amazing history, Mayan temples and monkeys! Jeff might even find a wife in this episode.
Expedition Overland joins up with Team 5 to head into the Mayan jungles of Guatemala. They hope to have an impact through combining resources and providing high-level medicine to remote villages in a forgotten area of the world.
Expedition Overland continues the mission with Team 5 as they head back into the Mayan village to perform a life changing surgery on a little girl. The XO gals back in Montana leave for their second year of competition in the Rallye Aicha des Gazelles rally in Morocco, Africa.
Expedition Overland encounters some less than desirable characters in El Salvador and decide to push on through Honduras to get into Nicaragua. The girls competing in the Rallye Aicha des Gazelles race are moving up the ranks as they conquer some very extreme terrain. However, everyone’s luck, in Central America and Africa is about to run out!
The crew barely makes their way through the border into Nicaragua allowing the team to explore the back roads on active volcanoes, while the girls in Morocco face some serious challenges in the final stages of the rally.
In the second to last episode, all efforts are made to recover the Tacoma, one of the most complex recoveries in Expedition Overland’s history. The guys push into Panama to attempt reaching the remote, southernmost point of North America.
The FINAL episode of the season brings the team some major geographic and personal challenges. Things get tense as the Darien Gap becomes the focus, and end of the expedition. No one will leave unchanged.
