Mexico Surf Trip – Oaxaca OVERLAND TRAVEL VLOG Ep. 20

Our surf adventure leaves Puerto Escondido and heads for Barra de la Cruz, Concepcion la Bamba, and some lesser known surf spots in Oaxaca. This stretch of coast near Salina Cruz had some fun surf and excellent car camping opportunities for the traveling overlander.

Curious, why didn’t you mount the solar panels on you roof?

Radnally says:

What kind of mpg are you getting with your rig? I really like what you did with the shell modification and I’m wondering how it affects mpg. We’re surf crowds smaller in Baja than the main land? Thanks

Nitram Midnite says:

Unlike some of the other overland travel vlogs out there, you actually document the challenges you face not just the fun and sun. Sorry if you’ve already published a video on this but I’d be interested in learning about what you might have changed based on your first year on the road, misconceptions, safety, security, language, and the like. Also anything you brought with you that isn’t being used as much as you thought as well as things left behind but wish you had brought? Thanks, be safe on your amazing travels!

Ron Hart says:

There is NO WAY !! I would sleep somewhere that has poop on the bed and things that go bump in the night !! LOL:)

Jamie Michael Outdoors says:

Oooiy!! Smh, hope you folks don’t get sick from that water. Love the scenery! Thanks for sharing, be safe, God bless & look forward to the next video.

Lord Kronos says:

I have watched the video 5 time from 2 different accounts. The view count has not increased. Maybe YouTube does not want to Pay you

Joan Avilez says:

Sam says:

Hi guys another great video…… stay safe out there and happy travels all the way from scotland xx

Scott Bell says:

No dogs?!?!? No DOGS?!?!?? Obviously these people don’t appreciate Jaeger’s struggle. Home-puppy didn’t endure multiple eye surgeries and 2 weeks of cone-life, to NOT chill on the beach.
