On Tuesday, our road team joined forces in Mombasa to officially launch the Mobius Road Trip, an epic travel adventure that will take us to 20 distinct spots thru Kenya over the next 2-weeks to showcase Mobius Two to potential buyers.
Our first day of journeying drove us to the beautiful town of Ganze, located in the coastal region of Kenya. As we made our way into town, crowds of villagers ran towards Mobius Two to gain a closer look at the road warrior in motion. As we made our way through the rough terrain and dust filled roads we were warmly welcomed by the ever enthusiastic Village Chief.
As we settled in, crowds began to come down from the dirt filled road to glare at the Mobius Two. About two men, and two women gathered around the vehicle, eagerly inspecting under the hood, and checking around the tires until they met us with a look of true approval. After bit of chatting over the vehicle spec questions, it was time to give everyone a feel for how the vehicle handled on the road. The next few hours were filled with groups of villagers young and old waiting for a chance to ride in the back of Mobius with Joel, and Dave switching off behind the wheel. It was quite enjoyable to watch their reactions when we first rolled up into the village, but their appreciation for the vehicle seemed to intensify after the test drives commenced.
From there we were off to do a bit of filming as the sun was setting for the evening. We pitched tents in the town of Voi where we spent the evening with Ibrahim (the lead Mobius welder) and his affectionate family and rested up for Day 2 on the road.
Day 2 we set off through a breathtaking mountain view across a stretch of highway en route to Mtito Andei, and stopped for a quick rest and to enjoy the heards of Zebras grazing nearby. We were eagerly greeted by the Highway Police, who were curious and impressed with this new vehicle for Africa on the road. We literally had to pull ourselves away from the police to hit the road to arrive in town for the night and prepare tomorrow’s adventure with Mobius to Hell’s Gate. So join us as we journey thru the next two weeks of Kenya road adventures.
