Newbie Stefan here


I’ll keep it short and sweet. I’m Stefan, 27 and Australian currently in Bacalar, México. I always wanted to do a trip through Central America but was put off by others opinions/suggestions. Nonetheless I’m currently in Mexico where I found 2 abandoned puppies, adopted them and now they are currently 5 months old. Now the only feasible way to travel is with a converted van. I’ve bought a dodge ram 1500 and currently getting the mechanics right and then extending the roof before I start designing/constructing the interior

I hope to be active in these forums as it’s a complete first for me. So any advice especially dodge ram specific would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers, Stefan

That’s so cool! What breed are they?


I don’t really know. Just a mix breed of various street dogs in Bacalar.



All the dogs I’ve had over the years adopted me… hehe…
