About Journey America
On July 8, 2012, Filipe Masetti Leite, a Brazilian journalist based out of Toronto, embarked upon one of the most daring journeys of the 21st Century. The second-generation cowboy is riding two horses through 12 countries in North, Central and South America – a lifelong dream passed down from his father and inspired by Aime Tschiffelly’s 1925 ride from Argentina to Washington D.C. Filipe is traveling on horseback to explore, learn and engulf himself in the simplicity of a “natural way of life”. Riding through hundreds of towns and villages on his nearly 10,000 mile journey, he’ll engage with locals to hear their stories, sharing the most compelling narratives he finds. All the while you will see his personal footage updated weekly and follow his exact GPS coordinates on OutWildTV. Come along and experience Filipe’s adventures and pitfalls while he experiences the wilderness, cities and towns of the Americas on his epic journey home.
Adios La Libertad
After a week resting in La Libertad, it was time to hit the road once again. With the horses rested, Bruiser feeling better and a few more stories in my journal, I headed for San Pancho.
A Chicken & A Rooster
One night after feeding the horses, my friend Carlos told me there had been an accident downtown.
What was meant to be a 2 day layover in La Libertad turned into an entire week. My second morning there, Bruiser awoke with a swollen hind leg.
