Just picked up our 2 bikes, since shipping by sailboat is no longer an option and container vessels / ports suck it’s the better way. Unfortunately both our motorcycles arrived with cosmetic damage despite our efforts before flight to explain where straps could and couldn’t go… nothing major but disappointing never the less. Put some padding / protection if you can!!!

We cleared in 2 motorcycles today that flew in via Air Cargo Pack… paperwork took 5 hours!!! Bring a book, food and patience.

Last of the fishermen cleared out an hour after dark, just my little van and a class A on the other side of the big paved lot. A couple carloads of kids raced in at 2am to (I’m guessing) drink a few beers but they were surprisingly quiet. Didn’t hear them leave.
Quiet, no signs prohibiting overnights, mostly level. Would stay here again.

Good spot for the night. There was a train that went by across the street around 3 or 4am. Other then that it was quiet . I parked under a street light in the back by the brown wooden building. A few tractor trailer trucks, a truck and a suv with trailer spent the night .
2-4 bars of Verizon LTE.
Clean bathrooms in the morning!

It’s in the mall. Take the entry to your far left and you‘ll find it on the very left end of the ground floor.

Payed 1000 p for the boat for three adults. Camping free. Good cell signal from Guatemala. The place is ok, a little muddy after rain and a smell of decaying corps breezing from time to time.

Very expensive. Christmas season? 3600 pesos per night for two people and our camper. (About $22CDN at Western Union exchange rates.) Super quiet, secure and well-maintained campground which will certainly keep you safe and calm after a hectic day in touristy crowded Bariloche. Access to bus route (if you have a Sube card with money on it) #20 or #21. Awkward entrance. This place is not big-rig friendly. Spaces are tight and there are many low-hanging branches.

Yes there is an acua purificata just at the end of the brick building. We slept at Charley's place and could fill our 18lt bottle for 17pesos. They are very nice peoples.

Si pasan por este lugar o cerca, no dejen de visitar esta cooperativa de café, chocolate y cacao.
Es una cooperativa que se ha creado como alternativa al cultivo de la coca.

Agree with the below, stunningly wild.

Seriously windy, but we were fine two up on our g/s motorbike north to south and in a tent for the night.

Take your time on the route, some really rough/slippy/steep patches, normally all three at the same time!

I’ve included a couple of route photos, bit like the Bolivian alti Plano but without the horrendous washboard. About two dozen mad hairpins at the north of the route; steep corners with gentle route between them, many currently almost grassed over.

Don't ever go to that place. They rip off foreigners on washing their car / truck. They charged us 5.000.000 Rial for a truck wash.

Ideal place for a night of rest. Large flat area and with several local options. Apparently abandoned camping hotel. The entrance is at the intersection with the railway, before for those who come from Rio Gallego and then to those who are going.

As described. Took one of the first sites on the right fork in the road and made it just fine in my 2WD SUV. Very quiet and peaceful with the tall trees and full moon. 1-2 bars of Verizon LTE generally, although it goes in and out, so don't expect reliable signal.

really nice campsite off of BLM 145. would probably be fine with 2wd but need high ground clearance to get through the tumbleweeds clogging the road. needed max ride height on my air suspension and it was still a little dicey. probably not like that all of the time.

Now at this park you just pull off to the side of the road. Some other rigs stayed the night here and saw one tent. Some people having fires as well but I think it was in their own contained fire pit. Water spigots available on the ground. Bathrooms open all night.

Stayed here overnight on advice from the locals. There are potentially security and falling (rotten) tree issues closer to the crag. Ignacio (climbing guide) and his cousin (Poncho, who speaks excellent English as he used to live in America) were very accommodating. It was free to stay with them in their yard. Toilet facilities are basic.

The crag itself is "challenging" in that it is significantly undergraded and there are safety issues around many of the bolted routes. You need to bring your 5.10 lead game if you're going to get much done here. The rock is monzo-granite and has a distinctive Jtree look. And access is less than 50m from the carpark. MP has good topos.

If you're looking for something more beginner/moderate, then TePopote near La Primavera about 10 miles east of Guadalajara is well worth a look.

Excellent compound at Batz Gluecksland ! We used their service upon arrival to pick up our vehicle. They immediately supported with quick fixes for our batteries, electrical wiring of the solar panel and interior cleaning.

We returned 4 weeks later after our namibia trip and left the vehicle for long term storage. 700 NMD per month. Markus built solid warehouses and takes care about batteries and is very knowledgeable about Overlander needs. He will have the second warehouse ready beginning of next year for higher big rigs.

Area is about 40 mins from Windhoek downtown and 30mins from the airport. Also the campsites are really nice located amd make you feel that you are in the bush. (See our separate comment on the campground marking)

Bottom line, perfect place to start and end your trip for namibia!

We had a lunch stopover during lockdown time and felt very inspired by this pretty little place. Very relaxing atmosphere with nice coffee freshly brewed on the veranda. He can tell you a lot about Namibian history and background about economy, traditions etc.

Normally he also serves food and home made icecream. Highly recommend this place !

As described wonderful place to stay, peaceful, beautiful Sunrise and stars, hardly anyone around in off season, can park pretty much anywhere along the beach and very hard packed sand absolutely no issue in 2wd van, porta-shitters spaced in few parking lots along the road

Knowledgeable mechanics who replaced our oil filter and fixed some other small problems in no time. Friendly manager there who explains the different options and prices are very reasonable.

Our actual coordinates where we set up were 24.1612782, -110.4265746 ... so south of the dunes and south of Playa El Mogote. Holy crap this area is great! There are dirt roads sprawling all around this area so we had some fun exploring around looking for our favorite spot. Had the entire area to ourselves it seems. This is a tidal flat area, so be mindful of tide charts and where the high tide line is! As well as deep sand in places. However most of the roads are hard packed and our 2wd sprinter had no issues. Estuaries also make for fun kayak exploring. The full moon rise over La Paz made this extra magical for us. 10/10 !!!

This was one of the nicest dispersed sites we've ever found. The road up is slow-going and rocky. We were in a Rav4 and had to move a fewer of the larger rocks just to be safe. Be aware that there aren't many places to turn around on the way up. The site is large and has multiple level spots to park. The trees are beautiful. One person drove by at night and two more in the morning. Otherwise it was very quiet. We had full service with Google Fi.
