GoRUFFLY Around the World season 4
Crossing the Darien
With their new puppy copilot – a white Swiss shepherd named, Whimsy – Jess and Greg ride new Triumph Tiger 900 motorcycles south from California through Mexico and Central America. The daring plan is to cross the dreaded Darien Gap jungle by foot!
White Swiss shepherd Whimsy is only three months old when the GoRUFFLY pack sets off south. She is learning to ride and live on the road right from the start!
Although our hearts still grieve the recent passing of our beloved German shepherd, Moxie, we welcome a beautiful, rambunctious new puppy into our pack.
White Swiss shepherd, Whimsy, is just three months old when we set out from a temporary base in the foothills of Northern California.
Whimsy is learning and going through all the growing pains of being a puppy as we ride south through Mexico and Central America.
Meanwhile, our new Triumph Tiger 900 motorcycles – Tuskarossa and Tenderfoot – are enormously capable machines, which allows us to tackle ever more difficult off-road, tracks, and goat trails!
We face one challenge after another as we make our way south to where the Pan-American Highway ends in Panama. There we will ship the motorcycles to Colombia and attempt to cross the dreaded Darien Gap jungle by foot.
It’s 100km of wilderness, mountains, and swamps crisscrossed by footpaths and rivers but no roads.
Crossing the Darien is a daring adventure to train up a puppy while traveling by motorcycle and then trek across the dreaded jungle at the end of the Pan-American Highway!
