Well, that's sort of what I did. I bought and built the Jeep in Miami, and shipped it to Panama when I got transfered to Costa Rica; I still go on a monthly basis to Panama (for business trips), so I just drive it from Panama to CR and back. I can leave the Jeep in CR for 3 months at a time, and then I have to take it back to Panama for 3 months. It's actually going back this weekend to Panama...

Let me put it this way; it was easier to DRIVE up than WALK up... a coupe of drivers fell down when they got out of their vehicles (one of them fell twice!), and at one point, I lifted my foot off the mud and my boot was stuck in there (I had to yank it out of the mud).

Sorry, but the camera girl is the wife... Not likely to change! (at least unless she figures I got the better deal here and goes off with a better man than myself!)

Some more pics from Costa Rica:

This is an ORV park in Birri:





Then in a place called Tornillal:









At a friend's cattle farm:





Some playing around in private land:







Exploring the mountains close to my house:





A bit of water play:


And wheeling by the Nicaraguan border...

Well, I spend about $50 after every wheeling trip to get the interior, exterior, frame and underbody and engine compartment cleaned up and detailed so that I can avoid driving a rustbucket! But it sure is fun driving it in the deep goo!
