They say the best things in life are free.

But you’ve got to invest in the skills and experiences that prepare you for the best things in life.

Elise Bent and Mercedes Lilienthal are doing just that. They are Team Free Range Dames—and they’re working their asses off to get to the Rebelle Rally in October

What’s the Rebelle Rally, you ask? It’s the first women’s off-road navigation rally raid in the United States.

In this episode, we talk about the countless hours behind the scenes, doing the grunt work. Dealing with the not-so-glamorous nuts-and-bolts of the affair. Looking fear and uncertainty straight in the eye—and making progress no matter what.

Mercedes and Elise have been running down this dream for months.
