AND you're from Vernon!!!!

All great things and places!
My workmates say the same thing, every time my Wife and I head out, its a trip of a life time!! In the last 3 years we've been to Nicaragua, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, Czech Rep., the UK, Chile, Argentina and Brazil. I think next Fall my Wife is researching either Tunisia, Morocco or maybe Jordan. I'll let her surprise me!

Yes, that Diesel Hilux was a huge surprise! We had rented a small car but they upgraded us to the Hilux for nothing--- I'm so glad they did!! This may be sacrilegious to say on this forum--- but I'd trade my 4R AND Celica without hesitation, to have that Hilux Diesel 6 spd at home!! That truck was no less powerful (probably more torque) than my 4R but with insanely fantastic fuel mileage!!

The Hilux trucks are amazing!
Rafting, Kayaking and fishing--- all possible! Off-roading goes without saying!! I loved the Hilux!!! I believe it was a 2017--- with none of the electronic junk in the vehicles here in N. America-- much like my 98' 4R!
It's too bad Toyota didn't import these trucks to N. America, but I suspect Toyota didn't want to go through the difficulty of getting the Turbo diesel through our emission standards. It appears their market research believes the N. American market demands larger displacements and larger vehicles..??

another stop.. Iguazu Falls

... After Salta Argentina, we flew into Puerto Iguazu to take in the largest Falls in the world Iguazu Falls (or if you're in Brazil, Iguacu)











In this pic, we are standing in Argentina, Brazil is to the top right and Paraguay is to the left....




We stayed on the Argentinian side for a few days and then took a taxi across to the Brazilian side and stayed a few more days... now from the Brazilian side...
