Our home on wheels. The solar panel is mobile if we get the chance to park in some shade.
We are just a few days away from take off. Our current plan is to leave Feb 15 and be home again the beginning of May. The route is a loose plan, spending time in the Baja and then ferry over to the mainland Mexico and keep going. The plan is ......

We have our mode of transportation and sleeping quarters build and ready for packing, Ron did an incredible job building us a 35 square foot home in the back of a 1/2 ton where we will live for 75 days! We are very excited and can hardly wait to get on the road. Not all who wander are lost โ™ฅ๏ธ

We will try a very minimalistic life for 75 days.

Now to get the truck packed and get this show on the road. Stay tuned and we will post as frequently as we have WiFi.

Have a safe trip
Quite an adventure. I do suggest getting a can of wasp and hornet blaster and keeping it handy. You can't have any weapons but that is an inexpensive cure for pests and banditos.
