En Route & Arriving In Buenos Aires

12/27/2011 5:48PM: Update From Dallas/Fort Worth Airport

This is just a quick note as I wait to board my plane to Buenos Airew. I heard from Rob and it appears that the shipping company has let us know that customs will have the car cleared in time. But yet this is South America and Argentina we shall know more when we land. I will be connecting with them on the ground and from their reporting back on this blog.
12/28/11 – 8:39AM: Arrived In Buenos Aires — Container Has Cleared Customs.

Another note to keep you updated as to our progress here in South America. The entire Darkcyd Rally Racing Team arrived in Buenos Aires early this morning. After several hours of phone calls to the shipping agent and the port, and running around Buenos Aires securing supplies, cell phones and exchanging enough cash to pay for gasoline (diesel fuel) during the rally, we finally were called to the Port at 5pm Buenos Aires time and Robb, Raff, Bill and our local fixer, Pablo, are at the port retrieving the vehicles.
Soon they’ll bring them into the city where they’ll tweak and adjust the vehicles before heading to Mar del Plata tomorrow morning for a 6:30am start. So far all looks good.
