Nicaraguan Construction

In case you're wondering what we've been up to and why we haven't been using the Super Camper much, here's a sneak peak at our new project. If you like what you see, check out our other blog:

So far we have two small houses on our lot. We built the first one for our caretakers then liked it so much we claimed it for ourselves and built them another one. Both are little studio-sized houses. Now we are finally starting to build The BIG House - a proper 2 story, 3 bedroom house with big outdoor patio/bbq area, balcony, etc. Check it out!

The Super Camper appears in a 2010 4Runner webisode

A few months ago I was invited to spend a weekend test driving the new 2010 Toyota 4Runner. They gathered 4 current Toyota owners and set us loose in the new model. We surfed, ate, shopped, camped, and then tested the new ride offroad. Super fun experience! Check out the clip and watch for the Super Camper cameo!

And if you are interested in what I thought about the 2010 4Runner, you can watch the video below as well.

The Super Camper Survives Baja

Those of you who are familiar with this blog know that we started building The Super Camper in 2004. By the end of 2006 it was finished and made it's maiden voyage to Baja. On it's second journey over the border it was broadsided by another truck and nearly totaled (see the second video clip embedded in this post for that story). Finally at the very end of 2009, The Super Camper returned to Baja and completed the mission successfully. Check out a few clips from the adventure.

Camper POV and longboard footage shot with the GoPro HD cam

Back in 2006, ten hours into a 14 hour drive we were hit in the side by an oncoming truck.
Our vacation that had just begun was suddenly cut short and we spent the next two nights in a junkyard.
