    Our Round-the-World adventure

    Morocco! Great images! Spent 3 days in Marrakesh (side tour to Atlas mtns.) with my family on foot - so photogenic! We were there during Ramadan and the nightly megaphone religious "singing" in the plaza was mesmerizing. Exotic place and culture.

    Our Round-the-World adventure

    Norway! I will add that to the list for decision time. It is hard for me to enjoy travel when food is expensive cuz I love food! But more than that - sheer beauty.

    Our Round-the-World adventure

    I really like this thread. Glad to learn more about and see some of Albania! Our very shortlist includes choosing between an slightly off-season trip to Iceland, Faroe Islands or The Shetland islands (maybe less dramatic but far less expensive and less flights from our location in SW USA) Faroe...

    Gas prices & a few grizzly bears...

    Loved the photos! I can't get that type of mileage on my 2016. More like 14.8 - with a roof rack and some stuff on it. BFG's and minor lift. I think staying under 70-mph is key.

    Auto liability insurance for europe

    Another option for future for certain types of trips. When we family travel we usually fly and then rent. Just did this for Croatia and Montenegro 1 month ago So this does not apply specifically to Overland exactly but World Nomad has a comprehensive travel insurance at 2 levels and the...

    Baja Weekend South of Ensenada

    Nice Report! I watched the Baja 400 live and saw how beautiful that coast is! Headed to LA Bay Thursday. 4Runner with Mid level Icon stuff - it really does make a difference. When you are loaded up - hydraulic bump stops can be nice when you hit the unexpected!

    Rocky Mountain High, or can you still get away with no reservations?

    Thoreau, NM (IR 371). Ha! After a gazzilion trips to the San Juans - and dreading the Holbrook to Gallup to Shiprock legs - finally this summer took the Thoreau loop into Farmington. More I-40 time but still fun. Remote, nice, peaceful change. Tucson has had about 9" of rain if not more this...

    I could not agree more. After watching previous Dakars where he has done so well... and no one had picked him up to sponsor. Full steam and with with full support!

    Baja California

    Thanks - I have never done that since 2006 and about 20 trips BUT I have never ventured into Baja Sur either. It is also my understanding that you can not get the FMM visa in Guerrero Negro - you need to do it at the US/Mex border.
