Mexico (9) – Northern Pacific Coast

< ?xml version="1.0"?> Our way leads us from Guadalajara to Puerto Vallarta on the Pacific Coast. We like it warm but the temperatures we found were really maddening. Daily average 35 degrees and above and at night around 30 Degrees with a humidity above 70%. ...
Portraits from Latin America

Portraits from Latin America

Memories are, oddly enough, like a fruit salad. Though the fruits commingle, each remains an individual part of the salad. Take a single item out and it’s no longer a salad but a piece of fruit. This occurs with travel memories as well, and although the names...
Gear Review ~ Lodge Dutch Oven

Gear Review ~ Lodge Dutch Oven

Overlanders depend on their gear. After all, most of us are homeless in the traditional sense. The road is our home, and the gear we travel with can make or break the trip. As very active campers even in our old life, we were quite certain what cooking gear was going...

To the lake

To the lake

The distance on the map didn’t look to be that far. Really, kilometre-wise it wasn’t. But how long it takes to get there can depend on which roads you drive on. We didn’t have a map of Guatemala. Just a few roads outlined roughly on a back page of...

Canadream

On Canadian soil and the Cowboy Trail led us to a great little campsite! Plenty of locals were out and about enjoying the lovely wilderness camping available which was no surprise given the scenery although the weather enroute was rather awful. Weather looking ominous...
Oaxacan Valley Magic

Oaxacan Valley Magic

In spite of feeling little love for Oaxaca City, our time spent in the surrounding valley proved to be one of our favorite periods in Mexico. The combination of stunning scenery, glorious weather, interesting villages, ancient ruins, and meeting other overlanders...
