Rally Tallies: South America

With the DFN-9000X Supercomputer on the fritz, we’ve had to consult our midget Travel Stenographer to dredge up this most recent batch of travel statistics from the South American portion of our adventure. After slaving away over abaci, and quadruple-checking our calculations this document was then passed to a group of former Nazi super-scientists whom we’d kidnapped from a secret base in the Antarctic. When they completed their assessment we politely rolled them up in carpets and threw them off a bridge. Here are the results. IN YOUR FACE.
