photo hunt 128 - road

I was having a hard time deciding what to do for ROAD - I mean, won't they all look the same in some way or another? So I decided on posting some pics from my off road trip in the Dominican Republic jungle. This was our stylish Dune Buggie. I will say it had much to be desired in the shock absorbing department but it was fun to drive!

The first challenge was getting to the jungle. There was a quick rain storm that left the roads a little flooded.

They also don't have traffic patterns, center lines or any organized form of driving on roads. I was always worried we were going to run down one of the crazy motorbike riders. They would zip right in front of you without even looking.

Finally! The road less travelled. It was an amazing experience. We travelled 60 miles, which lasted all day, through various remote parts of the island. If you are ever down there I highly recommend it!!

It looks like an amazing experience. I hadn't realized the road was flooded until I read it. I thought it was just dirt.

That looks like great fun, exploring all those roads in such a neat little car. I think I would like one of those for around here during the spring, summer, and fall.
