Ancient Traditions in Yangon Myanmar

Greetings from Yangon Myanmar!

Lance and Michelle are currently on a recon trip in Myanmar. They are planning for a future EarthCruiser trip through some of their favorite parts of Asia. Self drive overland travel in Asia is getting easier, making it perfect for the EarthCruiser way of life.

From early to late models, the Fuso Canter is a popular chassis option for bus and truck transportation.  Roads aren’t very wide and lane markings are a guide, not a rule. That’s why small and manageable is best.  Which is just right for the EarthCruiser size, making Yangon a good starting point for a Myanmar EarthCruiser adventure.
