Below the map we have a 240V powerboard to plug in our devices on the road while connected to the inverter or plug it into mains power when it is available.

Should We Take Bikes?

As our departure date approaches we are still debating whether to take push bikes on our trip. We have a bike rack that can support two bikes. Once our camp is setup with the rooftop tent etc it can be quite time consuming to pack up and
