Road trip....

Lorrie and I filmed the roads going into  the refuge today. We drove to Caracas, Pata Prieta, Playa Chiva and La Plata, in an effort to show the current road conditions. We also wanted to point out that many times there's no need for a 4WD vehicle on the refuge beaches. Green Beach, maybe a different story. So strap in, kick back and let ZZ Top take you on a road trip, if your game.




Speaking of trips, look what Lorrie found in one of the beach chairs from Casa Dos Chivos when we set them up this morning on La plata!




We laughed  so hard when she found it. Casa Dos Chivos translates to house of two goats.

 Weather was beautiful  on La Plata and  since it's been such a groovy kinda day, I'll leave you with some Steppenwolf. Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper (who's no longer with us) having their own road trip.

    1. -13, man oh man that's cold. I had planned on having more video of the drive into La Plata but some how managed to shut off the camera as I was driving. Should have let Lorrie do it. Weather has been absolutely perfect down here, couldn't ask for it any better, well, maybe if I were here full time to enjoy it.

  3. Thanks so much for posting this. The roads look much better than we have encountered on other trips. Looking forward to being there next week...(prediction of 14-18 inches of snow tomorrow).

    1. The refuge roads are really drying up now, most of the mud puddles are disappearing. Road to Navio is horrid. Road out to Green is still pretty bad.
