    Yeah, my goal is not that big. Just using my phone for instant uploads/updates. Camera for rare wifi moments.

    Wifi isn't too hard if you can upload on the road, everywhere in Argentina and Chile has wifi in Service Stations and in lots of Cafes - free wifi is easy to find. But it's slow and you only get to use it if you get to stop for a while on the way. The big issue is the cost to be in the bivvy. Even for you to go as a team member would cost the Freedom Rally guys another $4000. They might already have a car on the assistance route so that might not be a big issue for you to overcome. Worth chasing.
    Best thing I ever did was cover that race on the ground. Not being there brings me to tears nowadays though, so be warned!
