    I don’t know if you’ve ever seen or heard of an OLN show called Departures, but Rambo reminded me of its series finale…

    To take on the Australian outback, the hosts purchase a Land Cruiser, paint it like a phoenix, keep it running through thick and thin, develop a relationship with “her”, and pass it along to another traveller when they leave the country. Really cool to watch.

    I encourage you guys (and anyone else) to watch the whole show, but to especially check out the final episode.

    Please find me on Twitter if you do decide to check it out. Would love to hear what you think :-)
