Panamanian Plastic Pooch

ELDOG of the Day... Panamanian Plastic Pooch It's been difficult to get to know the people of Panama. Not sure if we are giving off a vibe or if it's just the personality of the region. It's been just as difficult to get the…

Along the coast south of Veracruz and Anton Lizardo, we found a free place to boondock right on the beach. But first we wanted to score some clean purified water ice to have for our sunset happy hour. The boy at the closest tienda said the…

Sometimes just too many rainy, muddy roads and towns to recall. After a rainy day in Durango and heading toward Mexico City, found ourselves shortcutting it through Sombreretillo and Fresnillo hoping to find a room or hotel to get out of the…

Driving through busy Durango on a rainy day. Why not stop to get some dark front window tint? Oh, why you are at it, why not upgrade front and back stereo speakers. In and out in well under an hour and got a great deal. Now if I can only find…

Turned on to a dirt road from Federal Highway 15D and drove through the small town Celistino and further toward the beach. The beach side of the road had an assortment of odd little "resorts" and "RV" parks. Everything look locked up and abandoned.…

A free boondock camp spot right on the ocean. Didn't see many people the first day, but funny to watch a parade of yellow cabs drive up and down the beach. We found out later it was much smoother to drive down the beach instead of the road.…

For overlanders traversing the PanAmerican Highway, Panama is end of the drivable road. If going on to Colombia and all points south, the Darien Gap poses an impassable gap of swamp and forest between Panama and Colombia. The only real option…

Our beachfront free boondock campsite near Campeche. Elizabeth gets full credit for spying a fence break and small hidden trail from highway to beach. We were completely hidden from the road. One of the few times we deployed our army surplus…

Ladies and gentlemen... meet Willis.... The idea of Road Dog of The Day was inspired by our loving guard dog "Willis". He kept Eldo safe, and her tires well peed on. All road dogs are now named Willis in his honor.

Freshly across the border and heading down our first random backroad of Belize. We crossed the river in a hand crank ferry with several local trucks and busses. We convoyed with them for awhile before another tempting side road had us turn…

Puerto Morelos became our first extended stay home since beginning life on the road. We stayed here 10 days in a simple but comfortable house with air conditioning, kitchen, shower, and amazing reliable internet. A quiet and friendly town…

Happy traveler!! Sadly, the coastal resorts along Highway 307 south of Playa del Carmen make accessing the surf a bit challenging. We found both refuge and access at Chamico's Restaurant where we were allowed to camp on their beautiful beach…

Altun Ha Mayan ruins in north-central Belize. We followed a few small genric "Ruins" signs along the Old Northern Highway and found this amazing site. Primarily occupied from 900 B.C to A.D. 1000. Over 800 pieces of jade have been found here.…

Spent the night at a eccentric but friendly beach hostel in Hopkins Belize. Sun just up and already a hot and muggy morning. Packing our supplies for an isolated week alone on an island 8 miles off shore to take care of a huge pet pig. Met…

Handline fishing in the clear shallow water. It was nearly impossible to find a nice rod and reel anywhere in Mexico or Belize. We found some line and small hooks at a hardware store. We smoothed down a piece of grey driftwood, wrapped some…

A young spotted eagle ray digging with it's snout in the protected shallow water near the dock. We were caretaking a small private island off the coast of Hopkins Belize and pet sitting a large uncastrated pig. The days were long, hot, and…
