Wicked Vagabond camping stories:

More fun! Vagabond camping stories:
At Champoton I headed south on 261 to 186 east. From the gulf of Mexico to the Caribbean, 186 is a newly paved road but it had a lot of dips to the point where I had to slow it down to under 60 MPH so as not to bottom out, weird.

I was somewhere between the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean, in the jungle. It was hard to find a comfortable place to camp. Things were looking eerie. The Jungle is dark and dense right up to the edge of the road. Wherever you see a spot to pull over it’s loaded up with garbage and crap probably left over from workers waiting to get picked up after work or who knows. I finally saw some paths leading off into some type of orchard. I was desperate for a camp spot, it was getting late.

The ground was wet and spongy like thick weavings of moist plants. I’m thinking about sneaks. I was glad to get the tent up, get inside and cool down. This is the jungle…...
