I’m so thankful for meeting @allieschuck and staying at @chili.kiwi.lakefront hostal. It completely changed my overall Chile experience! I added a 9,300ft active volcano climb up/ slide down to the bucket list of everyone who sees that sledding video. I talked to so many local Chileans that have helped me plan my motorcycle travel through the best of Patagonia! So happy to meet up with another solo female traveler and motorcycle rider! I’m sure we’ll meet again, thanks again for everything!
Everyone has that one car they wish they never sold - this is ours. 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser Collector’s Edition. 2.5 inch OME lift, 285/75/16 BFG All Terrains. Clean rust free AZ car it’s whole life. 163k miles on the clock when it went to a new home. Need another 80 Series ASAP!

I lowkey really want a Tesla. Imma just slap some KO2’s on them and call it a day.
We are finally in #Myanmar .
8 days after starting from home we drove into Myanmar .
The border crossing formalities were quite smoothe with Immigration and #carnet stamped on the #indian border within one hour. We then crossed over the Indo-Myanmar friendship bridge to fulfil the formalities, which took us a gruiling 2 hours with our group of 5 bikes and 4 other cars!
As soon as we got in, we had to give the local food a go. Most of the meals are rice based with a bunch of vegetables and your choice of meat :D
The day was all about crossing bridges (more than 50 in total) but the 300 odd km drive to Gangaw was relaxing with good roads and a laid back pace....
Next stop Monywa, and en route we will visit the Phowintaung caves...! #terraquest#seadrive#expeditiondestinasia#roadtrip#overland#india#myanmar#travel#selfdrive#exploretocreate#instatravel#travelgram
Uncertain on so many levels, but confident in so many ways. Surround yourself with good people and good things will happen. I am fortunate to be surrounded by a lot of good people and these two are no exception. I am honored and grateful.
It looks like the XJ will be staying on 3.5in of lift and 31in tires, as I’ll be raising the Mercedes Turbo-Diesel another inch, as well as trimming the oil pan down another inch or more! Pretty excited, as that’ll save a few thousand for a few more upgrades in the future! 😉👍🏻
