    Are you hitting "VOLUME 1: DAKAR 2012" on the drop down menu that appears when you hover over the PUBLICATIONS button?

    Sorry, I am on a mac with no IE at the moment, but I'm pretty sure we tested it for all browsers :huh

    here is the direct link to magcloud:

    Sorry for the confusion...a drop down menu should appear with two choices (volume 1 & 2).

    The web hosting company was having issues today (just our luck). Perhaps try again?

    I did not get the Drop-Down menu, but ordered directly from MagCloud so no worries...

    I already had the pre-order version, but ordered another for my brother's birthday gift.

    Thanks for all of the efforts in putting this together!

    Hey Chavo! Your secret is safe with Ted...
    (as long as you send spy pictures from the start)

    :D

    Volume 2 might not be ready for the start in Lima (wouldn't want to distract you), You just focus on making it to the finish, and by the time you're home it will have probably been released

    Google translate


    Finally, he announced that it has planned to make two food fairs in areas where passing vehicles observed so that attendees can taste typical dishes.


    Two new waypoints.

    Finally ordered Volume 1 :clap
    Now how do I pre-order Volume 2? I had to order from MagCloud directly since I couldn't access the TFTB website and they didn't seem to have a way to pre-order volume 2 there.

    TFTB volume 2 won't have a pre sale....but it should be available within a couple of months. The layout phase has begun and it's looking........ impressive :thumb

    Price is dictated by how many pages it is. We just add a couple of dollars on top of whatever the printer/shipper charges us (Magcloud). Volume 2 will likely be cheaper than volume 1...

    This isn't a money making business (working at McDonalds would pay better). It's a fun hobby and it's cool to make something we wish already existed. Stoked folks are enjoying the first in the series; from what I am seeing the second volume looks great :nod

    A huge thanks to the folks who contributed to the second volume, hope you like the finished look. Photos, interviews and writing were all submitted by people who wanted to share their stories, without them this wouldn't be feasible.....THANK YOU :thumb
