On October 31, 2013, the co-founders of BRCK set out from Nairobi, Kenya for Sibiloi National Park on Lake Turkana to stress test the BRCK: a rugged internet connectivity device developed in Nairobi. The goal of the trip was to use BRCK's remote connectivity to live stream a full solar eclipse passing over the National Park on November 3rd. The team travelled for three days through some of the most remote and dangerous regions of Kenya using a Land Rover and three motorcycles to reach their destination.
Reg Orton unloads the BRCK team's Land Rover Defender 110 after it broke down early on the first day of the journey. In addition to the food, water, supplies, and cargo for the journey, the team packed fuel for two days' worth of travel.
