Even driving in Iceland is dreamy.
I'm no geology nerd but the basalt columns all over Iceland were pretty spectacular to see. I know someone who would appreciate them. I'm looking at you @thebucketlisttraveler
My first stop in Iceland took my breath away. So did my second, and third and every single view until the end of the trip. It really is the most beautiful country I have ever been to.
It was a fun weekend of wheeling, camping and more wheeling with the Zen Jeepers. My Subie is almost bone stock except for my @subtlesolutions lift. I’m just learning to drive her and see what she’s capable of. Subarus are capable, fun cars. People I run into on the trails are always impressed at what Subies can do. She’s never going to rock crawl or do the gnarly stuff but that’s not what I use her for. I just like to explore and camp off the beaten path. Shout out to Steve at @rpmoffroadgarage for getting me back on the road in great shape after I got distracted and bottomed out hard on the trail. And for feeding me BBQ! Good thing my @primitiveracing skid plate was there to protect my catalytic converter or my trip would have ended up being a huge bummer.
When I was planning my trip to Iceland, I read about how expensive food is there because almost everything is flown in. On top of that, I knew I would be living out of my SUV the entire trip. Finding lightweight, nutrient rich foods was important to me. A friend told me about @huelusa on a camping trip and I decided it would be perfect to take on my trip. I’m so glad I bought it. It is delicious, filling and was perfect for my daily breakfast. This is not an ad. It is a tip that I found extremely helpful on my trip. As someone who loves to travel and live out of my car, tips like this are very helpful to me. .
A lot of people have asked me what I brought to eat on my trip. The last picture in this post is the food I brought. In addition to Huel, I brought almonds, dried edamame, steak jerky, dried fruit leathers, dehydrated Mountain House meals, tea bags and my Jet Boil. Oh, and bourbon because alcohol in Iceland is VERY expensive. I bought cups of noodle soups, cookies, chocolate and other snacks at Bonus discount grocery store in Reykjavik Iceland. I bought propane for my Jet Boil at a gas station. .
