Our Adventures in Erendira!

Ready to Roll! Almost!

Raul and I are so excited about our new Overlander vehicle. Right now I'm sitting in our truck at the mechanic's shop while Raul and the mechanic, a genius of a guy named Miguel who fabricates off road desert race cars, are working on our Vehicle.
