Update: To the moon and back!

sO you want to know the deal?
I'll tell you the deal. We're almost there. We've received about $1200 dollars of contributions from friends and family.
We are almost there.

Roundtrip costs from Memphis to Djibouti, East Africa:
$340 x 3 ( As opposed to the $5,806 per person it would be otherwise. Insane insane insane I know..!)

Travel Insurance:
$25 x 3
Visas to Djibouti
$50 x 3

Safety net money while traveling from Memphis to Amsterdam to Paris to Addis Ababa to Djibouti, and back.

Malaria pills
Yellow fever shot for two;

Hotel, meals, on-site transportation, direction, and guides while there are courtesy of the Africa Travel Association and the government of Djibouti.

Total: A whopping $2985 for a journey for 3 people halfway across the world! yeah!

If you will contribute anything!
If even just 200 people out of the group contributed $5 that'd be $1000. Or if you can just give $3 or $2 or 50 cents!
It's that serious. We are almost there!

I will bring something back for everyone who contributes! Even if you just wanna send me a good wish message (I'll appreciate it and bring you something back..) don't know what.. that's part of the journey!
We are wanting to document us! you! me! from our! your! our! perspectives and do something that has never been done!

Contributions can be made securely via Paypal at
We fly! this evening for Amsterdam!
ANYTHING you can give will help us make it!

See you on the other side!
