Mounted the extra headlight on the Truckhuis. Quite a bit of work due to the incredible way of how the headlights in a Ford E-450 are mounted. Looks probably great on paper but I hope never to have to change a bulb in the dark or when it is raining. I discovered while doing this […]

We drove down the mex 307, which on the road map follows the coast line. In reality the road, 4 lane highway, stays away from the coast at least a mile. Every mile or two to three there is a big entrance of a resort. The one more pompous than the next. It is not […]

Uneventful 2 hour drive from Merida to Piste. A small town next to Chichen Itza.We parked our Truckhuis in front of the Pyramid Inn and connected the electricity. The rest of the day we looked at the traffic passing by on the mex 180. It is striking that after the twilight only empty trucks are […]

We stayed at the Rainbow RV Park. A completely rundown place, but strangely enough we could see or better it was feel the splendid, the grandeur of yesteryear. A pity, it is possible to make something of this place.Next the the Park is a Gallerias, a big mall with a ice skating rink in it. […]

We entered the “rich” part of Mexico, the Yucatan peninsula. The infrastructure is newer and well maintained. The road we are using, the mex 180, was before a rather small two lane road with potholes and a lot of topes (bumps, sleeping policemen). Now it is converted in a clean and smooth four lane highway […]
