Journey America Part 3
About Journey America Part 3
Beginning in the summer of 2012, one man and a handful of extraordinary horses rode 15,000 grueling miles from Calgary, Canada to the southernmost tip of South America. OutWildTV is proud to have brought you Filipe Leite’s incredible odyssey from the beginning with Journey America Part 1 and Journey America Part 2.
But Journey America is not quite done. One small section of North America remains, and while this ride will be shorter than the first two—roughly 2,000 miles—it may turn out to be the hardest of all. On May 17, 2019, Filipe Masetti Leite will set out on the final stage of his memorable adventure. Journey America Part 3: Ride to Where it All Began will follow Filipe and his horses as they attempt to ride from Fairbanks, Alaska through some of the world’s most rugged and beautiful country to Calgary, Canada, the starting point and the ending point of Journey America.
Conditions will be difficult and the weather will often be harsh, so this long ride will take place over two years. As before, there will be regular journal entries and the opportunity to follow Filipe every step of the way, so please check back regularly.
Journey America is no longer the chronicle of one man chasing his dream. It has grown to become the story of how dreams empower everyone and how living our dreams can bring out the best in ourselves and those around us. We hope you’ve enjoyed sharing Filipe’s dream as much as we’ve enjoyed bringing it to you, and that you will follow Journey America to its conclusion at the Calgary Stampede on July 8, 2020.
In Tok we were hosted by a beautiful woman by the name of Betty. “You guys can stay in my cabins while you’re here and please take as much hay as you need,” the short haired lady in her 70s said with a warm smile. Betty and her husband built this horse friendly B&B years […]
Road to Tok
Our ride from Delta Junction to Tok began with a near catastrophe. After crossing a long bridge with the help of Eric and “Old Wise Grey Horse,” Clara gave me some terrible news. “Something exploded under the hood of the motorhome and now there’s a liquid leaking,” she announced when I made it to the […]
After 6 long days on the road we arrived in Delta Junction—our first resting point on the journey. “I’m so happy to have just covered the first 160 kms of the journey,” I said to the camera while the horses rolled behind me. Luckily we found a great place for the horses to rest in […]
“Wake Up, Mac Jumped Out of the Corral!”
On our third day riding with my good friend Eric Forsyth, we were awakened by a terrible noise. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon in late May, the sun now up nearly 24 hours a day, when we found a great place to camp. “This will be a beautiful river to spend the night by,” […]
