Map a Budget Around the World
Hi Mr. Andy,
I definitely concur with compliments for the links. Sure does take alot of the guesswork out of plotting, planning, preparing. It does get a bit overwhelming in one regard though. I have an awful hard time filing all the info away for reference. Your footwork does most of it thankfully.
You are in unique position to do something else if I may ask. Nowhere can I find any worthwhile "reports from the field" regarding POV mode info (Personal Owned Vehicle). I just bought my old $1700 1989 14' U-haul Ford F-350. Thanks to a neighbor running a site (shadetreeconversions) hope to soon swap my Ford diesel for a tractor diesel common to the world. Perkins engines have about 7 parts and will go forever..hehe (As you probably are well aware of). Your comments on road conditions during your length stay, fuel access, impression of local mechanic abilities, etc. Any morsel would be great. Would also go a long way to making expensive 4X4 decision. You touched on these matters a bit with pics of a gas station in Thailand and of Africa. I truly believe you would be the only one on the planet providing such things in any fashion. A kind of Lewis and Clark without whats her name. Anyway, youve already done alot. Taught this old dog a new hobo mentality emphasising backpack living. Beyond that, my 14' box is largely a traveling outhouse. Ill have no windows so I reckon Ill paint on a crescent moon. Im sorry, these bones getting old and need routinely hot showers or baths, not to mention a reading throne...hehe. Appreciate your time and effort farmboy, take care.
