1/2-1/3 | Arrival and Setup
January 2nd, our Dakar 2019 adventure began with a 9 and a half hour flight from Los Angeles, CA to Lima, Peru. With a little wait for our luggage we were off to our hotel and our first late night as we got to our rooms at 3am. The next day Cody, Ray and Tucker went down to the port to retrieve the race vehicles and our M2. Meanwhile Casey and myself stayed back at the hotel and took in a little bit of Lima’s atmosphere. After a few hour wait down at the port the team got access to our team vehicles and started the transfer to the first bivouac.
We showed up to the bivouac where the team is cranking away at setting up the compound. Parts for the upcoming 10 days of racing fill pallet upon pallet. Bags consume the pits due to the nearly 75+ people on our team.
