Sound Horn in India | Raul Sotillo

Raul Sotillo is in India sharing his photos. Sound horn in back of trucks caught his attention. Here is one explanation.

One Plausible Reason Why Indians Love Honking Horns. Forbes

“No matter what they’re driving, a motorbike, a three-wheel auto-rickshaw, or a 40 year old Tata Motors truck, the horn is as important as the gas pedal. It may be more important than the brakes.  And I think I know why Indians use the car horn so much; it’s the complete disregard for side mirrors.  No one uses them. Some trucks don’t even have them. Others have their mirrors pushed closer to the vehicle because to extend them outward could invite a collision with another driver.  Cars are so close to one another on the road that mirrors simply take up too much space.  So with that in mind, truckers behind the wheel of India’s ancient truck fleet — at least 40 years old according to Singh — invite drivers to honk as a means to advise them that they are about to pass.”

Overlanding Across USA in a Custom-made MiniCamper | Morella Koifman & Raul Sotillo

What is next for a Venezuelan couple that traveled in a VW Camper crossing Central America all the way to Texas and then went all the way to Jacksonville and Miami?

Well, they decided to cross Spain in a motorcycle! This year we observed the construction of a bed frame to create an unique mini-camper to drive from Miami, Florida to California.

These are their first pictures of  Morella and Raul overlanding across USA. So far, they have camped in State Parks and a Walmart “resort”.

We are following their outdoors life learning experience and we will share their photos as they continue their journey inside this unique mini-camper.

“Overlanding describes self-reliant adventure travel to remote destinations where the journey is the primary goal. … While expedition is defined as a journey with a purpose, overlanding sees the journey as the purpose.” #Wikipedia.
