    Default Citroen - Croisiere Jaune 1924 and Croisiere Noire 1931

    No road? No problem, just take the car apart and carry it in pieces.

    Those explorers of old had a lot of courage and iron resolve. If I could choose another age to live in, it would be during the prewar era. The world was just beginning to open up to the mechanized age, but there were plenty of blank spaces still left on the map.

    Thanks for these great videos btw. I've seen some clips of these on National Geographic specials (think they were sponsors). Anyway, they just go to show that the ultimate all terrain vehicle is your own two feet.

    That's a fantastic find. It's amazing what people accomplished with those early motors.

    here's an additional post to trips from the archives... starting in 1930:
