I just had the pleasure to meet Gabriel Storchi, a Soft developer that is making an incredible journey, from Buenos Aires, Argentina, to Alaska on a Chevy Opus coupe 78.
The name of the expedition is "Alaska a Caballo" (Alaska to Horse), because the final destination is "Dead Horse". "The name comes from there, is going to Horse, no in horse", Gabriel says.
The idea of making this trip is a dream that Gabriel had for years, "When i was a kid, y always planed to go to Alaska. I’m making this as a tribute for my father, who passed away this year, and another series of complications i had on my life this year. There is only one life, and you have to live it at full". Said Gabriel.
The goal is to get to a town called Dead Horse, on Alaska, United States. If the first stage goes ok, the plan is to send the car to Sweden, and make a trip from there t India.
The car was conditioned specially for this trip, reinforced floor, frontal protector, a roof carrier to take the extra wheels, a bed inside, and a solar panel on the back to charge the batteries for the notebook, an IP phone and the wireless connection.
