They collected clips for the “Make It Happen” DVD that was released a little while back that we’ve heard nothing but good things about. For those of you, like ourselves, who haven’t had a chance to see the video yet — You’re in luck. The book and full video will be released online next week! Get stoked!

The third Make It Happen trip took Greg Illingworth, Tammy Mccarley and Gary Young to Argentina to see what they could find for spots and experience! Take a peek at the teaser for a look into what went down and expect the full-length video to be even better!

“For the third instalment of The Make It Happen series of trips, we travelled to across Argentina, South America. We drove from the capital Buenos Aires on the east coast and headed west across the entire country to edge of Andes mountains on the border with Chile. At every city we visited we were overwhelmed by the hospitality of the locals who took us in, gave us a roof to sleep under and cooked us great food. Our good luck ran out in the city Mendoza where Gary Young and photographer George Marshall were robbed at gun point by three kids on a motorbike. Check out The Albion Issue 17 for the full story.
