We’re getting close. Excitement fills the air as we continue testing, preparing and solidifying our plans. Attending Overland Expo West 2016 was great and we had the opportunity to catch up with a lot of good folks, check out vehicles, attend training and get new ideas. If you missed it, not to worry, Overland Expo East is coming up soon and we’ll keep you posted. Attending Overland West gave us a great opportunity to shake down our vehicles and equipment prior to our departure for Argentina this fall. Additionally we had the opportunity to visit family, friends and a few of our wonderful state and national parks. So, meanwhile enjoy this pics of our wonderful tour across the US of A and few of the expo. Thanks for following.

Suburban Camping!

Day two was pretty uneventful traveling, unlike the previous day. We left Mobile around noon, saying goodbye to our couch surfing host, after taking down our tents and drinking a cup of coffee.

Leaving the neighborhood, where we did a little “Suburban camping”, we noticed some interesting signs. Now these must be “special” Alabama only signs. I have been in many states, towns, countries, and tourist areas however, have never run across these before. They said “Speed Lumps”. Oatmeal lumps, sugar lumps, lumps of coal, but speed lumps?

Hopping back on the highway, we were met with yet more torrential rain. We are getting pretty used to this by now and just rolled with it. The air temperature rapidly dropped from Scorching hot, to miserably humid. Fortunately we had the air condition running full blast. Unfortunately, Bernard’s air is not working in his vehicle. This will be a project later at one of the military base craft shops or maybe, Mexico.
