MULEFAM Vintage! This guy @enterprise1949 was just a wee lad when we started Das MULE in 2011 (later to become MULE Expedition Outfitters). At the time, we had a Vanagon Syncro Westfalia and our very first youth T-shirts had our van on the front and back in glow in the dark ink. Farron saw our post recently with Dana of MULE sitting in the van at our first Northwest Overland Rally and said he loved that van so much he still had the shirt which he acquired from us at that event! He came and showed us this year at the Rally and we hooked him up with a new one (that will fit him again!) for free. Thanks, Farron. So freakin' cool, man. I hope you get as many miles out of the new one.
a quick break from the salt... bolivia has had a few check boxes high on our list since we started planning this little drive (#notthefood). the death road (...aka camino de la muerte - scary spanish version ...aka yungas road - old school slightly boring version) was definitely up there. while it’s lost its title as the “worlds most dangerous road” and is now more of the “road full of the most bicycle tourists”, it still has a couple kms of butt-clenching drop offs and some even better vistas of the surrounding mountains. as you have to keep to the left, it felt like we were back in NZ with the right hand drive delica watching the confused bikers squeeze the brakes and move to the other side. plus an outhouse with some of the softest TP we’ve found in months. #beoldlater#panamericanhjghway#bolivia#deathroad#caminodelamuerte#vanlife#adventuremobile#mitsubishi#delica
So Saturday morning I installed camp on the shore of Round lake, oddly enough the lake is physically square. 😂😂 The down side was that I wasn’t allowed to pull it with the Jeep. The ground was a little too soft because of the rainy last week. But they allowed me to pull, by hand, my super light @prospecteur_ Mule trailer. It only weighs 430lbs and the @treelineoutdoors Joshua tent is 130 lbs so it make for a under 600lbs setup. Easy on Jeeps or light towing capacity cars. I did alot of driving from my home to the fishing cabin (1000km) and was pleasantly surprised that adding “all that weight” behind the Jeep only added 1L of fuel consumption every 100km ⛽️. I’m an happy camper 😉🤙🏻 ------------------ 📷 iPhone X 📍 Charlevoix, Québec.

Last day: Willow Hot springs, Oregon. Definitely worth the 24 miles of dirt road to get there. We got the best spot in the campground in a private corner by the mountain. We were parked next to a little creek so all night we heard frogs, ducks, crickets, cows and a variety of other birds. As we were hanging out in the hot spring, we met a man who lived in a cave about a mile down the mountain side. He was a psychiatrist in Ashland that works for 10 days straight and goes out to the mountains for weeks at a time... you meet all kinds of people on the road. This was by far one of the best places we’ve been and a great way to end the trip. Next stop: Home. • • •#kaneroadtrip2019 #oregonhotspring#willowcreekhotsprings#oregon#pnw#taxawoollybear#alucab#yakimaskyrise#tembotusk#toyota4runner#overland#overlandlife#taxaoutdoorswoollybear

🏆 Blanches Cup, Wabma Kadarbu Mound Springs Conservation Park, on the Oodnadatta Track. . This random pool of water 💦 out in such a dry arid part of SA is a permanent highlight of the Oodnadatta Track.... Along with its partner the Bubbler, Blanches Cup have significant aboriginal importance and are a truly beautiful sight to experience. 🧡
