Time Is Flying

Mexico was the country to meet again
 and again. Fun!
When I met Johannes, his Land on the Baja was just this, a piece of land. Over a couple of beers I discussed with Richard about his plans for a teardrop trailer he was about to build and about our passion for classic cars, by now Johannes runs an off-the-gride resort on his land, Richard races a classic Baja Racer over the peninsula. Nadja and Marcel, the Swiss couple I have met first in Alaska later in Costa Rica, is now living exactly there. Alex and Nathalie, I believe, are back in London, their Toyota sold to some happy campers. Others I have lost touch with and many new ones are to come. 

To find out about the panam roadies trips, where they are and what they are up to nowadays, visit Meet & Greet and klick on the linked names or blogs and you'll find yourself hooked to your screen and breathtaking stories of the Panam-Roadies for hours. Many of my travelling companions are already home, others that I will meet might have just left it. - Come along to the freshly updated Meet & Greet site! 

Travelling with Toni & Felix...
And it's not complete yet, come back and visit soon again to read about a native Braziliaon man, who became an orphan when his parents where killed by farmers hunting for more land for their cattle and many more interesting folks that make my trip worthwile not stopping yet...

Thank you for being part of it! 

Greetings from...

...where the earth is red...

...and the jaws are...


The tails long and...

...the looks mean but...

...not always. "Gimme a smile, Honey!"

Say "Cheeeeeeese"

"Screw you! - When I see this, I take a flight!" 

"You Coward!"

No, I haven't been... the zoo...

...just in the Pantanal, one of the worlds largest inland...


"No we do not live in a nest, we're living right here in a hole in the ground - Really!"

Every night we're getting some nice guests... our camp.

Come along too!

Pantanal Photo Gallery is coming soon to your home.

One Year Ago: Veracruz

One year ago, a tropical downpour, sitting in a hotel room in Veracruz, the blue truck parked between brand new Mercedes SL's, Porsche Cayenne's and AMG G-Wagons, at the customs clearance parking at one of Mexico's largest ports: Veracruz. Just waiting to ship to Colombia.

FARGO Trucks

The Fargo Motor Company was founded 1913 in Chicago, USA. As an independent company they have produced their own trucks until Chrysler bought the business.

Soon Chrysler bought the business of the Dodge Brothers as well as of the Graham Brothers and Fargo trucks were no langer independent vehicles but became...

Chrysler products with a FARGO badge. I do not know what year this model here is but I assume it is probably from the late...

...1940ties. It is in excellent, restored condition and was parked a long Calle Calvo in Sucre, Bolivia last Sunday. 

Visit my Road Warrior I and II photo galleries for more pictures of classic and many other vehicles.

Do You Remember FARGO Trucks?

I almost didn't either, until I ran into one here in Bolivia. Check back tomorrow and find out about a beautifully restored truck born in the USA, rolling on the streets of Bolivia some 50 years later. 

Talking about extinct truck brands, did you know in Switzerland we had an active truck industry as far as into the 80ties? Even produced under licence in the USA. And guess where I ran into one of those, check on my Swiss German blog, HERE and find all about it.

More about Fargo trucks mañana!
