First Steps

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” 

The days of tenting and crawling into a sleeping bag are behind us. Off the beaten path is not the terrain for a motor-home. A single cab, left-hand drive truck with low mileage would fit the bill. But did I mention we’re into minimalist travel? So no “mission” critical or “entertainment” electronics please. Reliable parts distribution throughout the world is also a requirement.

All of which leads us to the conclusion we’ll be importing a vehicle. So it’ll have to be 15 years old minimum to get into Canada. The roster of candidates includes:

Unimog 1300 or 1500

VW Man 8.136

Mitsubishi Fuso Canter

Steyr 12M18

And so our search begins. Stay tuned.

Curious – what’s around the next corner? Wandering, searching to find, where do I belong? Between the old and new world. Always looking for an adventure.
