  1. I never did finish the trip description in english - time during corona to complete! --------------------------- I had lost a lot of time, had to be in 4 days in La Paz where my GF will arrive. And I had to head back - many miles more in front of me. Had a lot of fun while pushing over dirttracks - having fun has mostly their own cost.... After 4 hours having a lot of fun, with pushing with speed over dirt - something broke: My engine hood get hood hangs crooked. Later I recognize that that Part is broken: Toyota Parts [I]53420-60050[/I] Hood Hin
  2. At the next day I found a beautiful dirttrack. After 10 miles i did meet a Police car - which I did query about my Route-plan. "You can try" - thats sounds again like a challenge. So I did follow the track. Looks I should start to navigate not only with the offline satellite Images on my IPad. I have too offline track & terrainmaps which Shows sometimes a bit more about the route... Also with near 300 hp I did miss some power after leaving 3500m height in the andes. These steep hills are easyer to climb with Speed, but I had to use 4lo - an
  3. Play too hard ends usually in a higher repair bill... I was lucky to reach Salta and don't to had an breakdown on a closed Andean-Pass... However, soon I could drive further.. A beautiful wild camp on a dam wall in the middle of the Jungle... I`m trying to reach Chile since 3 days, don't have any food in my fridge, because I had hoped to reach the border on the evening, where they usually confiscate my meat and food... I just try to reach the border of chile, but the landscape was to beautiful to just drive through! At this evening I drove from 200m attitude to 4200m and finally reach
  4. To drive the officially closed road 40 from Payogasta to San Antonio, was not one of my best ideas. To prepare the vanished roads at above 4000m heigh, to put big rocks in the rivers to build a passage you can cross... That was way too much for my condition at that height... Stupid to stay in waist-deep in icy water, who try to wash you away. But it brings me further... Anway. Very important is to wear the right shoes for that conditions. At the end I meet a passage which I was not able to cross, and had to return. Back to that roadblock from the morning.. Grrrrrrr... B
  5. Here also a small Picture-Update, all from Argentina (Mendoza to Cafayate). At Mendoze there I had the first unplanned repairs (caused by my harsh driving behavior). At Argentina I also meet again Roadblocks, the way the locals try to get noticed by the gouverment. Unbelievable that 6 Peoples could block a road since days, just allowing to cross that roadblock 3 times a day for 15 minutes. On both ends more than 20 cars are waiting. I guess without the two police guys - the mob would solve that "roadblock" very quickly... The so called demostration was because the village want a cleaner fo
  6. In the meantime happens a lot :-) I near drowned myself with the car, but some locals avoid that this happens. Details as usual in the Blog: http://adventure-overland.blogspot.com 4x4tripping

  11. There happens a lot in the meantime. I did have a nice time in Buenos Aires, a very nice city! I like the city from the beginning. I did a lot what i should not do as a tourist - running around at night with my camera, visiting "no-go" areas, using my smartphone to find my way and so on. And finally I was able to get my car out of the Port of Zarate. Everything went fine so far, the car is here, and everything sees to work fine. Now I don't need a Hotel, don't have to fight about to get my meat "medium-rare" - I can do it by myself. You can find my diary and a l
  12. There are some new updates in the Blog - here just some short notes. It is very relaxed to have enough time during traveling. I was a full week in Ushuaia, did a lot of trips, but also some days where I just walk through the city and relax. But I still miss my car - and hope that he arrive soon. I did meet many interesting people, and start to get a feeling for traveling alone. The catch of the day (out of the aquarium for shure). These Kingcrabs are.... Very tasty! The animals you will not miss, if you visit Ushuaia an amazing szenery seen on an booked 4x4 trip another perspective
  13. Thank you for your comment and Feedback! Now I`m since some days in Ushuaia, and are waiting for the arrival of my container who hopefully contains my car I did feel the limitations of the live as Packpacker, who have to book Tours or use the official Bus-Lines. I miss the travelling liberty we have as self driving overlanders, to stop where we want, to rest where we want, to light a fire an enjoying the nature.... Unfortunately not just the Hotels and Hostels are fully booked, also the rental cars aren't available. I`m happy that I was able to book an Hotel, bevor for the last Rooms was s
  14. I will start the panamericana in the next days. This time without an specific time frame, or route plans. I will decide during the day - what I will do on the next day. I`m 40 now and always dreamed about an extended or big trip. There is no timeframe who looks perfect for something like that. In the early 20`s I had not enough money. Later the career don't called for an break. With 40 both doesn't looks better, to be honest. But sometimes we have to risk something. Time is the most valuable what we have - why not risking something - to take time for ourself? We don't know if we are able to tr
