Rendition – The True Story of Dan ‘Tito’ Davis

An elusive international fugitive from justice, cartels, kingpins, stolen passports and the mercenaries who sent him home ISLA MARGARITA, VENEZUELA | This Caribbean paradise only a half-hour’s flight from the capital of Caracas served as home and hideout for Dan “Tito” Davis, but it was a world away from his humble beginnings in the sparsely settled state of South Dakota. As a fugitive from U.S. justice for well over a decade, Davis stayed in the shadows, frequently changed residences in Central and South American countries, avoided English-speaking vacationers, and eventually settled on Isla Margarita with a beautiful wife, a [...]

In The Wind (Episode #1) – Philippine Crucifixion Tour with Dan ‘Tito’ Davis

From midget boxing in a strip club to live human crucifixion, this trip was definitely extreme! I honestly couldn’t wait to share how much fun Sharkey, Marty and I had on the Philippines Tour with Young Pioneer Tours. Upon arriving to Manila, the restaurant that we ate at employed midgets and our group was served by these tiny professional waiters. The astounding level of engagement on my Facebook post of the picture with Sharkey resting his beer on the waiter’s head led me to believe I was on the right path! Apparently in Manila there is a large community [...]

In The Wind (Episode #2) – Unrecognized Countries with Dan ‘Tito’ Davis

Well... you can definitely say we’ve gone “off the beaten track” this time! Young Pioneers Tour planned this trip through Eurasia, touring countries that have almost no infrastructure for tourists. To be honest, my pronunciation of these places is as unrecognizable as they are. Though they are extremely difficult destinations to get to, my trusty travel guides at YPT made it happen! One of the safest, cleanest and most modern undiscovered places I had been was at our first stop in Yerevan. This is the capital of Armenia. While we were here exploring the landscape, we spent three days [...]

In The Wind (Episode #3) – Mongolian Express with Dan ‘Tito’ Davis

Checking in from the road as I travel from Beijing to Mongolia on the Mongolian Express! I met a new friend from California as I was boarding the train. Matt Augustine (PHD), the mad scientist from the University of California, helped me with book pimping Gringo and promoting it on the train until he would have to leave me at Ulanbataar for a hike in Gorki-Terelj National Park. In my train compartment there were 4 bunks. Two on each side, stacked top and bottom with a shared shower. Pretty excited about having the bunk above me vacant as I [...]

In The Wind (Episode #4) – Trans-Siberian Express with Dan ‘Tito’ Davis

Well, I started my trip of what I thought was a straight shot into Russia, however before I could even get out of Mongolia, the train stopped at the border! WHY?! It turns out, we had to switch trains and in the process, they had to take off the wheels of the train. Why would they be taking wheels off a train? Apparently the gauges change on the track when you exit the Mongolian border. This was about a 6 hour transition that took us through the night and into the early morning, about 3am, before heading out. While [...]
