Our adventures have begun! Well, perhaps we should say that our adventures have advanced! We have been living and exploring in Ecuador for over a year now. The year has been so grand that we decided it was time to step it up a notch. We have become comfortable with trotting around a third world country, our children have blossomed into little adventurers and our mutts have proven to be steadfast companions. But, our feet can only carry us so far in lands vast and diverse.
The time has come to add one more addition to this clan. Not of the human or dog variety, but of the super petrol chugging kind. It took some careful thought and consideration, a little more effort than driving a sparkling new truck off the lot. We needed something with the potential to live in, sleep in, and travel long distances in. Something big and heavy duty. Something old and reliable. Red wasn’t a requirement but red was what we got. Our new-to-us live aboard, haul aboard caravan is a 1984 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ60. We have named her Magma, in honor of our first adventures with her on guard to the Valley of the Volcanoes right here in Ecuador.
She earned her badges on this beautiful trip and we have some big stories to tell of our adventures exploring some of Ecuador’s most famous Volcanoes. While we are busy compiling the fascinating tales and unforgettable photos, this is a sneak peak of what is to come:
