After looking at early 2000s 4Runners, Cherokees, Monteros, Explorers, etc., Xterra is my #1. They seem to be currently undervalued when compared to the competition. My question is what should I look out for? I'm new to Nissan and I've done a few hours of searching and can't quite...
After living out of our Palomino Bronco pop-up for 15 months some mildew and mold is starting to stain the inside of our camper. We very seldom put her way wet so this seems to just have formed from poor ventilation while sleeping. We only have issues around the sleeping platform...
It is current and registered in California. Unfortunately the Dakar Rally coincides with the much anticipated Patagonia portion of our trip, so no December delivery is not an option. Thanks for your questions.
Damn. You have us over here at PanAm Notes very excited for that last leg. I'll shoot you an email soon to get your routing suggestions.
Awesome story telling and awesome picture taking. Look forward to seeing you in a couple months!
Bolivia Part 1 (of two)
Our 1.5 month route through Bolivia
We entered Bolivia from Peru and our first night on the shores of Lake Titicaca had us buzzing with excitement. Bolivia could easily be considered the wildest place in the Americas. An overlander's heaven, Bolivia is often referred...
You heard it hear first, ExPo. I had tried to sell it at the European pricing first with no luck. Now available at US pricing, my beloved Tundra and Camper. I drove it from California to Argentina without so much as a flat tire and she is is ready for another go around (or two).
The Last of Peru
Heading out from the Jungle and Cusco we took our time taking the back road to Arequipa and the world's 2nd largest canyon, Colca Canyon.
Camping on the Peruvian altiplano at 14,000ft
The road to Arequipa took us over mountain passes in excess of 15,000ft!
Bush camp #2...
If you do Baja don't miss Playa Tecalote outside of La Paz. It was described to us as a "real life Corona commercial" and didn't disappoint.
It's free boondocking and described in the Church's camping guide
Cusco, Camping Quinta Lala, and the Jungle Boogie
Saying goodbye to my parents, we head to the old overlander favorite, Camping Quinta Lala outside of Cusco.
Arriving at Quinta Lala and guess who was there camping?
We spent a week catching up with old friends and making new ones. Each day...
Machu Picchu & Cusco round #1
Here are some pictures of our journey to Cusco and Machu Picchu during phase two of our break from overlanding. Fear not, Next up we return to the land of overlanding and arrive at Camping Quinta Lala, an old overlander favorite.
The road to Cusco
Loved the Salar update. Cannot wait to get out there.
It's raining here in La Paz, so I'm browsing your USA posts via the blog over coffee. Leading me to be nostalgic for the states. You chose a great route! I'd like to do the exact same when we get back.
After the Canyon Del Pato we arrived in Huaraz where our non-overlander friends would fly in to join us for the start of our 5 week break from overlanding.
First up, 7 days in the Cordillera Blanca knocking out three peaks: Tocllaraju at 19,790 feet. We would also climb...
We're back! / Canyon Del Pato Peru
After a 5 week "vacation" with friends and family visiting us in Peru we're back on ExPo and regular web updates! Enjoy,
Canyon Del Pato (Peru)
After making our way through the altitude wonder known as Black Mud Pass (our route into Peru), we were more...
RMP&O is right here. A lot of the costs I listed are gearing up an expedition rig. Insurance, both vehicle (except Mexico and such) and health are optional. If you've got a Baja ready rig and are ready for a long term adventure, just plan for $80/day (total costs, 2 people) and get going...
