As a car guy, I can attest/confirm that there is serious homework evident behind this choice. It was a popular car, and pieces would be plentiful around the world, and hey, it's a Mercedes wagon.

Personally, you couldn't pay me enough to be an American driving through Mexico and Central America as far as the Darien Gap. But I guess some people are more adventurous than me.

I had just watched this video a few days before, which is why I was so eager to call “shotgun!” on Austin’s trip

This Facebook video* shows just how much editing goes into the show. I appreciated seeing these outtakes from the semis (and I wouldn't have been able to see them else ways as they have to fit the actual game play into 22 minutes).

*Video seems to be only available on Facebook for now. I assume that they'll have it up on YouTube soon too, but I wanted to share it while it was still in my head. (I don't *think* you need a Facebook account to view the video, but I don't know.)

That's super interesting. Both the Buzzy and Alan moments in particular that got cut open up a neat little window in how much latitude/levity you're able to display when you're up there.
