Hey everyone! This year I converted an ambulance into an adventure machine and am currently in Oaxaca, Mexico on my way to Panama. I'm traveling with my dog Dino the whole way and was wondering if any of you overlanders out there have made all the Central American boarder crossings with a pet? I'd love to get any vital informations you've gathered and love to know about the cost of car, driver and pet at these boarders. I'm on a budget and free camping everywhere on my way south. Any good recommendations on cool or secret spots between Oaxaca and Panama would also be much appreciated!!
Also if anyone is on the same route we would be more than happy to meet up. Right now I'm traveling with 2 Aussies and 2 Argentinians that will drive to Panama and Argentina respectively.

I've got a motorcycle, boat, surfboards, spear guns, fishing equipment, film equipment... just to let you know what I'm into.

Happy to join this community and look forward to talking with all of you!!

If you'd like to have a look at my ambulance you can find pictures on Instagram at-vanlife_ian_dow_travels.

If you have any questions about my rig or trip please feel free to ask.

Happy travels

-Ian

Hey, Ian and welcome to OB! Love your rig, how you converted it and all your toys! Great pics too! I agree with @SLO Rob to start a trip thread which would be fun to watch! I am currently on a 50 state road trip myself with my dog Annie living in my Jeep Wrangler. Safe travels, dry roads and open skies to you!
