The Twisted Andes Adventure 2013 is the first gathering of South American 4x4 enthusiasts from the website TwistedAndes.com. Formed ten years ago, it is the premier site for Latin American wheelers and has a huge following around the world. Sebastian Varas is one of the founding partners of the site and was invited to the Ultimate Adventure 2012 with his LSX powered Willys. He liked the UA so much he instituted the Twisted Andes Adventure, and this first year has 22 built 4x4s ready to romp 1,500 miles of Chilean countryside. Patterned after the US, the trip requires a team to live out of their rig for a week of camping, wheeling, and weather from blistering sand to freezing snow. Sebastian built another Willys for the trip since he parted with the first one, and it will be our ride as we cover the adventure.
There's no question that the Chilean scenery is awe-inspiring and catching a glimpse of it while covering 1500 miles in eight days in some of the toughest built rigs on the planet is a dream come true for any wheeler worth his weight in salt. Stay tuned as we bring you more coverage of the Twisted Andes Adventure 2013!
