North Coast Road Trinidad Road Trip part 2

North Coast Road Trinidad

Hello friends so we are on the second part of the road trip on the North Coast Road of course if you want to see me come into here you would have to see the first part but in this second part basically I am going to reverse out turn around and head back this is a long road that follows the north coast of Trinidad and this was the end of it basically I mean there’s a little space up ahead but nothing really is just a lot of mud and I didn’t want to get stuck there so I figured I’ll just turn around but this is as far as you can go basically.

North Coast Road Adventure PART TWO Trinidad and Tobago Caribbean Road Trip by

and so we’re gonna head back for those of you from abroad who are not familiar with Trinidad and Tobago this particular island is called Trinidad it’s of course a tropical island and Trinidad is located in the southernmost southern most part of the West Indies the Caribbean it’s the last island in the Caribbean to the south and it’s near to Venezuela so if you can’t find internal map um look have a look and look for Venezuela and then look east of Venezuela you will see what looks like the shape of a little boot uh china has this ship looks like a boot at least the foreign as it does

it’s a small island

around 1.31 1.4 million people here

so it’s has a high population density today is a sunny day with a lot of clouds there’s sometimes Saharan dust but that doesn’t really bother us because we will be um covered by the overgrowth of trees on both sides of the road

this road by the way I mean this part isn’t maintained well because hardly anybody comes here or you know just one or two people have been lived here or want to go on a hike this part doesn’t really maintain much but it was originally built by the us military during world war ii and this road stretches a good distance from one part of the island to the next

and to see how long it is you could of course look at the first part of my video but also a video called maracas which was the start of the journey and this is an example right here of what I’ve been seeing that it’s not really maintained there’s a lot of mud so if it’s your intention to come up here to see what it’s like make sure you’re driving a 4×4 you have mud tires all terrain tires a suv a truck or something you know I would not come in here with just a regular sedan or car or whatever because you’re gonna you’re probably gonna get stuck that pool of water ahead that’s probably you know has a foot or maybe two in some places drop so you want to make sure that you’re driving the right vehicle again to as I’ve said in my other videos about driving on the North Coast Road if you’re an inexperienced driver you just got your license or you don’t know how to drive or you’re not familiar with roads in Trinidad I would not recommend you driving here so if you just came from abroad and you think you know let me rent a car and go up the North Coast Road I i really recommend that you do not do that not only because of the road itself but because of the way people drive here it could give you a fright I actually have a whole series called crazy driving and Trinidad on my YouTube channel you can look for it and that’s to tell you how bad driving is here that I can actually have a series of videos on it that I update every now and again so I’m waiting for my son to get out of the vehicle and

um go on the other side I wanted to for effect have him record me going through all this mud I know mudders out there I’m not talking about mudders as in mothers is in muddy rs mud people like mud going through mud um would like to see that effect especially as I’m driving a d22 truck

why while he does that by the way I wanted to say that um JB’s Man Cave is not only about Trinidad Tobago or just the Caribbean I couple other issues I cover a lot of the islands but I also cover issues in the world thoughts on different places for instance Ukraine and the war there and these are things that the people have to go through I give some thoughts about it I mean cover social or when I say no I don’t want to say I cover politics I really don’t but sometimes you know some of the things that politicians do does wind me up and I might talk about it but mostly I talk about social issues I don’t really like getting into politics because people just start you know pushing their side their party or whatever and I’m not interested in party politics

this is a family friendly site my children are on the spectrum so sometimes I may also talk about that and I’m also vegan and sometimes I might have videos about veganism but I don’t push anything on anybody so this is me going through all that mud and water the vehicle

needs a good wash after this

well there’s lots of fun I mean if you like this kind of thing you know you’ll want to wind down your windows and enjoy the fresh air up here is really nice looking at the the green the bamboo and in this particular particular picturesque view you can see a lot of bamboo and as I have said before bamboo is good for um earth retention so that it prevents landslides and whatnot

so as my son gets back into the truck I also want to mention that you know feel free to subscribe to JB’s Man Cave and when I say subscribe you just have to press the subscribe button as a button that allows you to basically subscribe for free and subscribing allows you to stay in touch with me and it’s sort of your way of saying you know what I like JB’s Man Cave

but there’s also a like button so you can also like the video and whatnot so there’s a lot of overgrowth here but we are going to continue down this road and you will notice that on your right is basically a cliff a big drop to the ocean so again this is not a place for new drivers or drivers who just got their license or not sure of the roads or whatever you need to be an experienced driver to come up here and most of all I would not recommend if you are a foreigner or somebody unfamiliar with the roads in not to come up here either because I know some of you know you you come here you may want to rent a car and say um let me let me try that note coast road that jb went up but you know it’s not just about the road itself it’s the drivers on the roads I have a whole series about crazy driving in Trinidad and that’s how badly driver driving is here um sometimes I almost call it like a risk of course you don’t have crazy drivers all the way up here but basically on the roads especially the first part of the North Coast Road um going towards maracas you get a lot of crazy drivers and they will fly around corners and you can get hit if you can’t anticipate them

so this part of the road is fairly nice it’s paved but it you know we will go back towards muddy roads but as I was driving around here I was looking down a cliff and I was noticing that

I saw people and I thought wait a second I don’t see any path down but then I saw people walking and I stopped and sometimes you wonder you know should I go should I continue or whatever

because you know sometimes you don’t want to intrude on anybody and you don’t know if it is you know private land or a private area so I thought you know what I would just continue but then I said nah I suppose I’m missing an opportunity to record something good and then I decided look let me stop again and check

because you you could see the ocean there on your right and I was thinking hmm maybe there’s something really good to see down there and I am glad that I did because it enabled me to find a small beach that is public

and of course uh if you enjoy my videos and you would like to become a patron please do you can go to my site

there’s a donate button there and feel free to give a known donation of any amount that you can there’s a select box so you can select how much you want to donate I appreciate all of you who have given donations both in the chat box as well as privately that’s really appreciated helps out a lot

but there’s no obligation and there’s no push for it it’s just if you can afford it so you can see somebody’s coming up there and I thought oh I would have never really found that so we got out and I’m gonna go down to our path if you ever come all this way where you can I believe see bathe now I have not tested the waters so do not take my tip or my hint of this beach as gospel make sure that you find out about the waters and test them because like I said in the maracas video it’s not just about what you can see above but what’s underneath if there are strong currents underneath that can pull you out and where we are going of course has no lifeguards so be very careful when I got down there I did not see anybody be there I only assumed that these people that we are we passed and that we will meet down there will be

I’m helping some of my children come down here they you know they are not a bit shy about coming on these kinds of areas because it’s a bit slippery you can’t tell

and so I i wasn’t able to hold the camera well at the same time

but I just love these kind of little trails it’s like you’re going down to something and you’re not sure what you’re gonna meet it’s like a surprise but it’s all the good thing about nature so based on how the leaves are and everything I can tell that when it rains this path that we’re going on gets would be very slippery I mean really slippery everything’s just coming on here although there’s a little uh river on the right

so if you see me pause it’s because I’m helping my son’s dog

but you get to see some of the vegetation too um and if you’re new to JB’s Man Cave you will know that I keep my videos raw at least most of them especially these road trips and when I say raw I’m talking about the fact that um you know most people will start to edit this out and keep it just on the niceties but I like to show you in a way that you can feel like you are there with me

so I don’t do much editing except the blue and then maybe if I see children or somebody up close I might blur them out

but this is a nice b it’s small but it looks pretty good it looks like it could be rougher

and I didn’t get close to the water either because um I’m wearing shoes I know you think that’s ridiculous but early in the day I had actually filmed the maracas video and had my shoes on

because I wanted to walk a lot I didn’t come with the anticipation of any sea bathing

it looks pretty good doesn’t it

and I do apologize for the bit of shakiness it’s I don’t know I have to adjust my stabilizer sometimes when I’m walking a lot I’m not really paying attention and stabilizes auto work

that’s just a little notice for you to remind you to subscribe subscriptions are free

just have to click the subscribe button

all right so now that

I have a

bit of time to severely beach I am going to

take the pool and put it here so you can just reminisce on the Caribbean sea

see the area is small but nevertheless it looks really good

you never know how nice on a beach is until you test the waters in the ocean and maybe that’s another time

now there are some guys fishing there as well and I was amazed at how how near to the um shore they were fishing which means it’s probably something good enough to be caught there

and that little piece there is always called camera tricks

so this little part here is what is a looks like a little river

where water would come from down a mountain and fall here into the ocean it’s just a trickle right now because it’s dry

so for my judgment this be if you ever found it

wouldn’t be too good to come when it’s raining and heavy now some people love to go see bathing when it’s raining which I find kind of odd but um and they took it at that time

the sound is enabled so you can hear the songs of the ocean i’d love to have this on the ocean it’s just so relaxing

there have been many studies about the effects of nature on the human mind on body this is something that you actually need and when I say something you need to come out and experience nature if you’re all pent up in your apartment or your air conditioner at your job please and you don’t just go into your car air conditioner again you really miss now you know you need the vitamin d from the sun the fresh air for your lungs the positive outlook for your mind and so forth and that can come only from nature itself just just looking at green as a positive outlook for the human mind

so if you’ve been thinking about going to the beach make sure and visit hopefully this is a bit of inspiration

I love to keep the camera as low as possible until the water gets there and then raise it

my particular camera that I’m using right now is actually not waterproof it’s very much exposed to the element so it’s a bit of a risk but I time it

so after that little tour we are going to go back up to the truck usually climbing up something that is slippery is a bit easier than climbing down

as is small tip when going down always go parallel including going up always put your feet um

why did I say parallel in the opposite direction of where you’re going up so if you’re going up your feet should be straight across perpendicular

that way you don’t fall you don’t want to keep your feet in the same direction of where you’re going what is dong or up

there’s another video that I’m gonna have out where I found we found another secret place similar to this it doesn’t take you to a beach but it does take you out to a place where you can look again I don’t recommend any of these things if you’re a faint of heart or you’re not adequately

blessed physically to maneuver places where you could slip on fall but you know take all the precautions so going back up to the road this is in North Coast Road I started to just stick in some of the scenery

again just showing you the raw because if you were here you wouldn’t be racing to get back in the truck race center go to the next place racing racing where he said no you would be just you’re not looking or wrong take any time to look at the leaves

and one thing about Trinidad and Tobago the vegetation is very exotic sometimes you would encounter things that may puzzle their mind

yeah I was checking for something that I heard in a tree sometimes you have to watch but hanging snakes in the bamboo snakes love the bamboo to hang high and drop

so you have to be very careful there are snakes that look just like the bamboo shoots so you have to pay attention to your surroundings

this is a little river we met at the bottom by the beach this is the start of it and you can see it’s kind of dry but I can well visualize what this might be like when it’s a lot of rain a lot of water going on to that beach

these are the um ATVs that you can um rent

they allow you to come all up here and I also captured this which is interesting see that fallen those are seeds but they float like if it’s snowing sometimes you can see a lot of them I don’t know if you can picture it any calm any lens in your view if you’re watching this on a big screen TV which is the best way to watch my videos you should be able to see them well if you’re watching this on a mobile phone you may not pick this up

it looks like a little cotton seeds I don’t know the scientific name if you do feel free to comment in the comment area but when you when you do comment please tell us what you’re commenting about because sometimes people will drop a comment but you know I have no idea what you’re answering so tell us what you’re answering and which part of the video you’re talking about

so I was really glad to get that sometimes it’s hard to get because you you know you may see it but you don’t have a camera in hand or it’s from a tree very far away

that’s our vision of snow for Trinidad I also have a another video about snow-capped mountains I don’t know if you saw it but it was about these clouds that covered the mountain in the same shape of the mountain it looked like if the snow was covering it was very interesting

so you can see how these roads are very narrow I’m amazed to see this one little barrier there

I think it’s really cool some people have you know their houses and stuff what they do is

you know to come out here and and you know set up a house or whatever is you know yeah you really have to think out of the box and love outdoors and whatnot and it’s an investment too I can’t imagine what it’ll be cause somebody to bring materials out there you probably really need to have your own truck to do it

this is the part of the road I was saying they they really need to fix it right there that’s a big drop down to the ocean and I’m not a geologist but somebody can tell me that red color to me is just clay and that’s not really strong

now here I gave my son the um camera for the same effect that we had in the beginning he’s gonna walk to the other side and capture the truck from him because this is the next piece of the worst roads on the north coast that I wanted to capture I actually captured in the first part of the other video part one a car coming through here yeah I know I told you only four by four but you could you will be able to see what happens with that car trying to come out there had to let all the passengers um

they he had to drive fast and you’d be cool with swimming all over the place so it’s not a place somebody lost their license plate there we didn’t just notice that they see this video they could come come back for it

this would probably make a good place to mountain bike as well as run but if you do run and if you do mountain bike you need to be ready to get muddy and I mean really muddy but you’re not really careful then because you try to go on a cliff side right there where my son is now you could fall if this look to be very careful

so that’s the truck coming

so you can get an idea of what it looks like


I really have to find a a better way to blow my sleep sometimes I forget to do a lot of stuff this is the same footage of me commentary mod but just from the angle of the truck

so you saw what it was like as somebody observing me coming and now you’re gonna see what it’s like inside the truck

and if you’re new to jv monkey if you wonder why inside the truck is always quiet and that’s because I mute this song because I always have my always but most of the time I have my family with me and I don’t care for you to hear all the conversation and what we’re seeing in fact you don’t need to hear that so I would mute it

I do have a

external mic setup but there’s sort of a compromise where it’s either the camera charges or I give you the external mic I need to get an adapter for that

but soon I will have that situation solved

and you’ll learn about that in the coming weeks some new plans I have

so if you have never been through a road with lots of mud like this this is what it’s like

and so I’m going to wait here for my son to come back to the truck in fact I think when I got here it was really too muddy for him to to come in so I moved up a bit

and then we’ll fast forward it a bit at some point because you don’t need to although I do have videos where I just leave it running real time

I call those let’s watch videos and I have a lot of videos where you’re just watching for instance a scene like this but we we spent uh a bit of time here so I’m just fast forwarded

so some of these places might have their own

um access to maybe a private beach or private b

and there you can see the coastline it’s really nice

usually when I make these road trips I tend to cover so much stuff and I know probably is saying oh you should come out there and record but you know basically I’ve been recording all the

but I also have some plans for that as well

when we first ended here it seemed like forever because you know you when you first enter an area you feel like wow do these roads ever stop does it ever stop being muddy and with so many portals and stuff but you know looking at it going back out is is the world is actually not so long it’s just that feeling of having to go slow and pass through these little challenge and obstacles that makes it seem long


so here we are with more mud but you can see there’s a lot of residential areas around um houses here and there and you know the people up here keep their places looking really good huh I don’t know if there are resorts guest homes or what but it looks nice keeping and cooking the trees is like you know you can only see coconut trees when you come in these areas if you have seen any of my concrete building concrete empire videos meaning that you know the areas near the capital most and the familiar areas of Trinidad you’ll see this heavily built up and they just chop down all the trees in favor of buildings

you know as a tropical island we really need to keep it more green not to mention green is healthy as I expressed before good for your mind good for oxygen and whatnot

I wonder if any garbage trucks come through here and how often

if you know feel free to comment on my YouTube channel and within this video but if you do let me know what you answering because sometimes again people just answer but they don’t say what they’re answering so I really don’t know what they’re talking about

by the way if anybody a resort owner or you have a you know a beautiful place that you’d like to highlight I wouldn’t mind highlighting it you just have to invite me and let me know you can get email from my YouTube channel or use my website address jb or and send me an email let me know where you are what you have

I’m sure people would like to know about it because a lot of people come to JB’s month give an anticipation of what they could do or see when they come to Trinidad or even people in Trinidad I’ve had some comments where people have said they’ve never been to some of these places and in Trinidad and they use these videos to judge whether they want to come or not

now in case you don’t know not all my videos are raw like this sometimes I will create videos that are edited and spruced up with the effects and so forth

but um those videos normally address issues of specific countries and so forth where trips like this tend to be raw

because again the idea is that you need to feel like if you were there

feel all the bombs feel all the shakiness and whatnot

same with my walkthroughs

now by seeing those bridges we know we have come to the end of the muddy part of this road trip and I say the muddy part we still have our ways to go to get all the way back to saddle road and get past the other end of the North Coast Road however

you can see those um ATVs motorcycle what not coming they are coming because they are part of that same group

where you can rent their vehicles sometimes they gather there or elsewhere

so that’s one thing one option you have I talked about it in the first video

giving you two angles here one from the trucks camera and one me pointing out

right listen all this shot

so you can see what it’s like when you if you intend to rent just keep in mind that you you’ll likely be going through mud so we’re attack here for that

holy child

what’s up

so now that that started to be we will continue across the bridge and in continuing across the bridge I was finally able to see somebody

using a canoe is it

I’ll use the other camera at some point to capture that sometimes with shots it all depends on if you’re lucky sometimes you go to a place when you’re hoping to see something record you can’t see it and it’s only when you’re gone then it comes

that’s not yet another thing that you can do up here as well there’s a another beach on the cross on that side but I did not um

record that today

and I speed it up a bit here and for those people to come out

so if you notice most people will when I see those two bridges they will basically stay there and park they won’t go anymore because of the muddy areas but like like you saw from this video unless you go through those mud areas to to get to the other places you’re not gonna you’re missing out places that you could visit on the adventures in itself but we’re back on asphalt now and this will take us all the way back to Las Cuevas to Tyrico past Maracas keeping running off coast road until we reach south Europe

right here is an entrance you pay I think twenty dollars TT like three dollars u.s and I guess there’s something good there to see nice beachfront but I don’t I didn’t have access to that today usually it’s getting late for us and I mean this video in conjunction with um part one and the Maracas video was all done in one day so you know I’m pretty exhausted but don’t worry I will be coming back another day

and that’s blanche he shares beach on the right again a bit of it there but it’s just a lot of cars a lot of people so I didn’t even bother to be honest

I was checking it out to see if it calmed down a bit but it didn’t I really didn’t feel comfortable pulling out my um camera and start recording

so we continue on the road

now if you find there’s a mist in the sky that is Saharan dust comes all the way from Africa blown across the Atlantic and we get a lot of it here I there was a day that was really bad and I even made a video about it

if you want to see it and just make sure to do a search on my channel or you could ask any comments that you know you would like to see it and I’ll link the video to you I mean it was really bad it’s the worst I’ve ever seen it it literally was covering mountains you couldn’t see the mountains it’s almost Saharan dust

and of course you can always do any on a road made in Trinidad there are just numerous bottles

and I’m not stopping here I’m just waiting for these vehicles to pass so that I can continue

some of these roads once somebody parks on the road you really can’t pass unless there’s free traffic on the other lane

I don’t know what it’s like to live in a village like this basically kind of isolated from everybody else if you um are from Blanchisseuse or you spent a good time here that you gotta feel for the village feel free to comment and let me know what it’s like to live in branches how are you how you coop with getting access to various things that may be outside the bonds of the village you know have entered drive all that way to Port of Spain or Arima in order to get something or maybe you have do you have it set up here somehow that I don’t know a quarry or service or something doing that for you

i’d also be interested to know if taxis come all the way here I saw maxis

but I don’t have taxis do that too

what would be the price of a taxi from porter spin to here I could well imagine that would be astronomical

and when you reach here you know the road street is gonna take you to Blanchisseuse says road and that road will take you to Arima you can see this sign there on the left

whereas we are going to turn right and continuing North Coast Road

not sure why I stopped there

probably taking a picture of something

this church is a good landmark if you come in from this way which would be the North Coast Road

so let you know that junction isn’t there

as far as safety um these areas I don’t believe there’s you know these areas count on taurus coming in so people coming in should feel relatively safe because you know nobody wants to jeopardize the income that’s derived from people coming to visit banshee shares on the other beaches and stuff but like all things be you know be vigilant don’t be hunky-dory with the way you keep yourself on your belongings

there are people who I know like to walk around with all that jewelry and gold and show their fancy phones and highlight themselves and while yes you can you should not be able to have the freedom to do that and do it if you like but I’m just saying that there’s always somebody looking at you huh and you need to watch yourself be vigilant go in groups you know don’t do overdo it be cautious

I know somebody that um for instance they were on a beach and they took off their watch and left it on the um

on the sand with the towel and other stuff and they went in the ocean and you know was looking at at it from from there and they felt you know it was hardly anybody around and they figured it wouldn’t be a big deal but when they got back their watch was gone

you know they’re just people that fast so you have to be careful

if you’re in water somebody else should be in the sun and so forth keep an eye and don’t venture to anywhere that you really don’t know or you don’t feel that you can get out easily I know that’s kind of ironic considering where we just came from but

I always like to fill out areas the possibilities and of course with my truck I didn’t have much fears about being able to come out

so what do you think about this road trip going to the end is that something you think you would like to tackle that challenge driving all the way to the end of the North Coast Road is that something you would like to do do you have the vehicle that could do it

if you feel you could feel free to comment on my YouTube channel I know there are car rentals here that um will rent pick up trucks but I don’t I don’t recall seeing them with um all-terrain tires

they look like the tires of made for highway so there is a chance that even though it may be up four by four whatever it could still get stuck you may have to see if you could rent a suv but again you’d have to have good tires and I don’t know if you’d want to take a rental car up there I mean it will get really dirty and muddy and when you took your vehicle back you would you would be under some pressure to get washed on clean and whatnot

maybe if you have um a friend or a family member or a truck

they can do that

yeah take the time to clean

the screen there’s a lot of stuff on it sometimes I’m so busy driving I don’t realize that the camera is picking up every little thing that drops on the um windscreen

the irony of some of these places though is that because locally they don’t really map out things properly I mean they would just show a road but there’s nothing really to tell you it was the end of the road or what’s along the way or any of those things it really becomes like a unknown adventure uncharted and you’re already discovering it for the first time

I’m glad this maxi stopped there because

that would have already blocked the scene that big maxi in front of you

and why you know whereas I most people probably just showing you getting to the destination I always like to show both both going and both and coming back because when you show both what happens is you able to get two different perspectives of the place because going and coming always looks different you may notice certain things yes that you saw before but the view is different

this would probably be helpful too if you might be feeling lost or you wondered you know how long again before we get to x or y place well you know you get an idea from these videos because some people will ask me you know how long did it take to go here how long did it take again you could see from the um time in the

there’s a big bus pass and I had to go off road for it to pass you can see from the timeline how long it takes because more or less this video is unedited except for very few parts

where I switch cameras and so forth you know you can get an idea at the time

this is not like a rush rush road I mean it’s not a road that you want to be driving fast on or move in in a hurry you know take your time lots of potholes lots of places that um can build treacherous

I like this um picket fence here and these pine trees reminds me to like a camp camping area

and these are some really sturdy walls with the sweet lime growing on it the sweet lime is the green like green like ivy some sort of resort on private estate here these places also have they tend to have their own access to the beach

and I would love to cover that if you are the owner of one of the houses up here and you would like for me to come

I wouldn’t charge you just come and record it all just to display it sure the beach house is like

just let me know let me know in the comments or um send me an email by my site or if you are a homeowner and you’re interested in that and you’re like me to come on

film record some aspect of your home that’s unique also send me a message I might take you up or not

by the way I have a lot of videos carded you would probably notice that um I’m starting to have more premieres and that’s because I have a lot of content

to put out there I have some really good ones a free port coming up those of you who are fans of Freeport

some other areas and for the spin as well

and some random footage on some of other Caribbean islands

I’ve been releasing some um videos of martinique the footage is really nice you should look at it

only last ones I did was on nature

and you know I like to look at the other islands too because it’s sort of a comparison of how we are doing tourist tourist wise does it look like you know if we compare you know is this look palatable for a tourist versus the other islands why even why come to Trinidad I know Tobago has a tourist tech appeal

I mean

there are specific places tourists could go I think a lot more needs to be done

you can always tell any roads start to get a little smoother everybody takes off you can see me driving a little bit faster now

look at all those coconut trees on the right that’s how this island should be full of coconut trees or like the ones on your left chinese coconuts and so forth

the soil here is richer when I say here I mean on the island itself in general I mean it’s almost like you plant anything and it just grows

so there’s really no excuse to plant stuff

see like those burgundy we’re passing on the right croutons

lilies coconut trees as you can tell I’m a fan of green

oh by the way it just occurred to me a lot of you will come to my channel so why don’t I play the latest local music well there’s something called copyright I can’t just take music from anybody without a license and just start playing it doesn’t work that way I mean I coulda but then my videos would be sanctioned of course I don’t want to be do that so I play what I can and talk when I can

so if you looking for the latest music from Trinidad that this this channel will not be giving it to you the other channels I’m sure do that

well if you want you can play your own music and just simply mute me

and play it in the background

a lot of the music I do use is either available from YouTube or I have paid a license for it

so I’m able to use it by license

but I more or less try to use a alternative world music not everything is called so because I simply do not have enough variety to last for two hours for instance this video is almost two hours long and you know even for any dj finding enough songs because you’re not typical songs like what three four minutes or less

you know finding enough songs to fill that is is quite a job without having to replay the same song

so this piece of road is really good but this part here is a bit narrower look it should be it should have a sign they’re saying single lane because they couldn’t even put the um center line there

this strip of road is pretty good and you see a smooth strip of road in Trinidad it’s almost like you have to hold on to it and say your prayers because at some point you’ll be riddled with potholes

this strip of road also seems to be almost single lane

and on the left is the blanche issues secondary school which we explored already in part one of this road trip

so so the drive coming up here is nice and the drive going back in the afternoon evening is is just as nice

I think at some point I will need to make a

faq video a frequently asked questions video so many things people asked often or say often that lets me know they don’t know much about how jb Man Caves operates

you can tell by you know some other comments or whatever

sometimes too with these roads that when you’re on them they may have offshoot roads roads are turned left or right from the main road and could take it to some extraordinary site or some landmark or something but you know we can’t stop on every road that we see but when I i try to look at the map and find things that look like it could be interesting

but if you ever have the time you can do that sort of thing

I believe that was a kingdom whole jehovah witness church we just passed on and left

if you’re familiar with this earth feel free to point pinpoint any things that you think would be interest to us

there is a way where you can document exactly where you’re talking about in a video using a timeline hours minutes and seconds you can look on my description of this video and you will see a key follow that same pattern and you’ll be able to outline any particular place within a video

you can see that these people are

in a hurry

I’m in no hurry

I’m just cool right behind here I know the funny thing is about a lot of Trini drivers um they will go very fast and end up maybe 50 feet in front of you and end up having to drive the same speed as you

we were saying hey hurry to go nowhere

on the right is the coastline and if it wasn’t for all these big trees you would be able to see the ocean but unfortunately you can’t

there are places that you can stop and probably look out but as you can see this road is not one to be playing with people are coming through fast they are caught blind corners so I wouldn’t want to park here to look out

whenever you answer the comments feel free to let me know where you’re from unless you’ve seen Trinidad or your plans for the future some of you do tell me but some don’t some just will say it’s a nice video whatever and although I’m grateful for saying that feel free to let me know more

one thing I want to do jv’s monkey is to build that spirit of community you know just hang out be friends talk talk in the aspect of leaving your comments I will reply I do look at all the comments people that I think show us a sustained or consistent manner of commenting I i just put them on automatic approve so they can comment whenever for new people I have it always moderated

and sometimes I get comments that are not family friendly not necessarily against me but just saying things that are not you know criticizing people they see in a video or something like that and I’m not I’m not really about that and I don’t want to make JB’s Man Cave if political or a place to just bash people or whatever that’s that’s not my intention I i know if you see something that’s a social issue like you know keep any place clean leaving garbage all over sure I will let those comments go because we need to um we do need to talk about that people do need to know that they’re doing the wrong thing by the turn but you know seeing somebody on a video and criticizing how they look or or where they are whatever I do not approve those it’s always family friendly

you can see maracas up ahead

but we’re a good distance from better

talking way ahead it’s not where we are now is in um passing by last quavers

as I mentioned in part one I couldn’t stop here because there was just too many people I don’t record when there are too many people not that I don’t record because of the people themselves but you know people are in their building shoot what not and um I don’t want to be taking people when they are more or less exposed

so I will come back here another day when it’s not so bad you know earlier when we can actually go into the car park it’s so it’s so packed in there that you know most of the people parked on the outside as you notice

and given by the number of maxis I’m seeing they you know there’s a whole bunch of people there worst time to record and in my personal view was time to actually be on the beach I like to be on a beach one it’s free and open you know just a few people here and there but not like people almost rubbing against you

most people come to the Las Cuevas beach because it’s calmer compared to

the other beaches like Tyrico or Maracas where there are a lot of waves I square this is calm you may get a wave or two but it’s rare

the uh water is good for swimming and stuff do anything I don’t like about Las Cuevas is it’s a bit small

so if there are a lot of people there you really will feel congested

and if you haven’t been there for many years I will tell you it looks very different now because the maracas of the last quavers of the old days for instance when I was a child was a beach that was covered with rocks tiny pebbles was rocky and one of the things that used to really annoy me was about it was the sunflowers lots of sunflies so I never understood the um interest in going there but now it’s it’s uh sandy beach they moved all the walks and there’s no more sun flies it looks really good they made a park they made proper steps and stuff to get down

so we’ll have to explore that on already as you can also see the clouds are forming and again no raindrops here and there in Trinidad it tends to rain always in the afternoon I mean you could get a rain shower anytime but usually it will be sunny morning and by afternoon it will start to rain

I was glad most of the day was sunny we are on our way back now so we’re not stopping by any beaches so if it rains a bit it’s okay but till the end of this road trip it really does not start the poor

this is the area on the right where I was seeing that every time you come in this area it’s like more and more of the trees are removed and it used to be a lot of patches of ground but now a lot of has taken it over but it seems to be maintained in some form

I’m interested to know what it’s going to

be oh

now if you’re hearing a dog walk in any background that’s neighbors dogs they have annoying dogs that aren’t trained so they just bark at anything and I didn’t bother to close my window so you get the full brunt of it

funny as I’m saying that I have a video on noise pollution

if you haven’t seen it check it out about the noise makers in Trinidad and Tobago a big problem with people who like to make noise or are themselves just simply loud

as I’ve said in my other videos I’m more of an introvert conservative quiet I’m a per person

which you wouldn’t gather from watching these videos but um I am a dad driven by his children

I don’t know if you’re gonna tell but we are ascending again

we have to ascend before we descend down to um the maracas b area

but we will be passing on tarik office at some point

there are also other parts to go down and

view other bees but as I said in part one I am not sure if there are any restrictions you know a lot of private areas now trying that is not open as it used to be

a lot of gates a lot of signs no trespass don’t come here or pee or whatever growing up it you know Trinidad used to be a lot more open

could basically ask access anything there’s not that way anymore

and because it’s not that way anymore what happens is whenever there is something

do you get all this congregation of people

and it’s kind of sad because Trinidad should really have a lot of stuff going on that not necessarily have to pay for parks beaches shouldn’t be just one or two and they should be easily accessible if you if you want to encourage people to do the writing and not be in crime that’s one of the best ways to do it

providing places where people can be entertained

and happy


and that could be good employment for people to create in look at how it looks like if it’s snowing see that


that’s good employment for people I mean if you create more bees then that’s more places for people to work they can um you know you have lifeguards you will have to have people that clean up the beach maintain the beach then people will be able to sell their food the chairs the umbrellas whatever you know you’re providing opportunities the more you create and see more that tourists don’t want to come too because if everywhere they go they see a beach will be like very enticing but so now we just have one or two readily accessible beaches and and they’re so far away too

someone was commenting in my uh channel that they don’t care for maracas because because there’s just it’s just too far away for them I mean this is a to me is a long road trip I know we went to the whole of the North Coast Road but just for instance from me coming from let’s say police being and going to maracas that’s a that’s a serious road trip not to be taken um likely it’s something you really have to plan for and put effort into prepare for

vision it shouldn’t be like that I mean growing up as a kid we used to over access Chagaramas and all the beaches are on that coastline and marker ape and whatnot easily now everything is blocked off I have I have a video specifically on that also

you can see this the clouds are taken over this guy that’s diary because we just passed down the right

and it’s cutting out all the color from the video

hardly any blue

and we are back again at maracas you can see there on the right if you haven’t seen it I have a whole walkthrough of maracas beach I walk all along here I walk through the fishing village so you can see maracas in a way that you haven’t seen before

funny things so many signs saying no parking people still parked there the parking lots a full parking lot on the left and there are other ones higher up

like the risk in order to avoid pain parking

so as we ascend here we are leaving maracas by continuing on the North Coast Road and heading

back west

towards [..]
by the way as as my channel grows I will be diversifying I mean I already cover besides Trinidad and Tobago I already I also cover the islands and stuff but I also want to go into more of the social issues and I hope that the community goes that you will join me and talk

um about these issues sometimes world issues I always find that trainees are great to talk about you know

sometimes for the last things but I like to talk about serious topics as well

I know a lot of you come have not been insured for a long time and you want to see what it’s like or you’re planning our trip to the crib and I want to see what it’s like but I hope you’ll also stick around for other conversations we you know as friends

don’t just come and look at my videos on leave come on stick around let’s have a chat talk about other stuff too I don’t know if you’ve seen these dogs but it’s it’s weird these somebody talks like they don’t want to leave the wood one is only right just in the middle of the road and the other one they only left

seem to be not bothered about cars passing right next to his feet

all right I’m picking up a little speed here because we’re ascending a lot and driving a manual on a mountain after a long day of walking up and down is not exactly fun so I try to gain speed in order to um as I start to slow down going up the mountain

now in part well since a part one by any maracas video and we started this north coast wood trip I had shown you a lookout that enables you to see maracas beach on the whole bay area um and it’s really good if you have a nice d I can’t tell you one last I went up there and it was a really nice day to take pictures usually something’s wrong it’s raining it closes uh it’s a lot of clouds there’s a lot of Saharan dust you know this all this sun is in your camera there’s always some issue but we are nevertheless going to take a look at it just now you will see it

and if you’re coming from the other direction it’s it’s it’s easy to access that local but when you’re coming from this direction it’s a bit difficult because it’s right on up um a blind corner and by blind cone I mean you cannot see cars coming from the other side of the road so you have to be very careful if you’re going there from this direction

I would have stopped there first in the Maracas bay video but like I said the sun was shining into the camera and you wouldn’t have been able to see much

this is another small [..] as well but it’s not the one I’m talking about

and this is it coming up here and you will look you if you can see the road on the left bears left but it’s really hard to tell if any cars are coming there so like I said be very cautious when you turn in those tents are set up to sell via snacks foods and whatnot

I believe that path going down would take it on another beach I believe so but it’s private

if you know how I can access that well you happen to be the owner no do you wanna feel free to contact me i’d love to record it so today you can see the maracas b it’s on the other side of that ridge nevertheless is a nice shot from here

but as you can see lots of clouds Saharan dust still aside to behold but not a good shot so I didn’t even bother to stay around much because it was also raining a bit and this particular camera I have is not waterproof I didn’t have the waterproof housing on it

so that was that I mean we could have spent a lot more time here showing you other things but

I don’t have the chance

poodle looks like it’s having fun in our truck though

I know it looks like it’s really gonna rain bad but we don’t get much of it thankfully

now I know it looks like if I’m going back downhill but don’t let that fool you at some point I’ll go back up again that’s just how this road is you go up and down the mountains

most of it already seems up to me down down

and as you can see the roads are failing now no line markings so and people tend to bear around those corners pretty fast so it’s not a place like as I’ve said before not for somebody that’s a novice driver or just got a license or maybe you have been driving a while but you’re just not sure you know I wouldn’t come on here or venture here and don’t even think about letting it become dark drive in here that’s just on normal

as you can see there’s no street lighting

I can’t even imagine what it would be like to be stuck up here

for those of you who are enter four by fours I don’t use my 4×4 to get up here just gear 2 and 3 mostly sometimes 4.

I mean I have done it using uh engage in my 4×4 but

I don’t know sometimes it doesn’t seem necessary the engine could handle this without engaging up

now there’s a funny little um statue here I don’t know who created it but somebody created it it looks like an old man and they put a a covered mask on it

it’s kind of funny my wife wanted to get a picture of it

please do

so on this rest of this road trip will take us to saddle road and you will know when we start the road because it it bears into like a y one passing through Santa Cruz on one to then right on to San Juan I’ll be more or less the end of the video

now you know what it’s like driving on the North Coast Road from one end to the other it’s quite a road trip quite an adventure as you see one not to be done by somebody that is inexperienced in driving and not to be done if you don’t have a vehicle adequate to the extent of the roads and the lack of roads where there’s mud that’s if you plan to go all the way and as you can see there’s lots to do you could go to the beach you can do a lot of hiking there are a lot of hiking trails there but that I wouldn’t recommend unless you’re going on somebody who knows the trail and you’re going in a large group

there’s also um a lot of other stuff to do the kayaking canoeing whatever it is the small ATVs going through the mud that’s an option but of course most people just come up here for the beach, Maracas beach in particular or Tyrico or Las Cuevas

that’s what most people tend to make this long journey for

and so many roads here will actually take on a right when you do see a road it will take you to paramount all people don’t know that you can get straight to pyramid which is a village on a mountain top

that’s another video stay tuned

that one has some serious inclines

and again that’s a place that you really can’t go unless you know how to drive on and you definitely have to engage your 4×4 at some point going up there really steep a whole adventure in itself huh

that’s the only thing about Trinidad lots of places to explore but you really have to know about them beforehand because you know you could get lost really easily and maybe end up in a place that you shouldn’t be it’s good to have some sort of tour guide friend family member whatever have you shown you’re wrong but with these videos on [..] give you you get an idea you get an idea of where you are going what you’re going to see and what the road you need to take so if you’re actually making a drive you could even plug into JB’s Man Cave pull up the video and drive along so if anything looks unfamiliar you have it right here


of course if you like what I do and you want to support it monetarily I am not bashful for donations you’re much appreciated and goes towards helping my children they are on the spectrum

I am a at home dad

and uh most of my I should say all of my income comes from whatever I do in front of my computer homestead homeschooling and different things so my ability to get out is hard so even in these road trips I actually it takes a lot of planning and preparation but it’s a good outing for them too because you know sometimes we feel like we’re in a perpetual pandemic you know those of you who

like you know complain a lot because of the pandemic or you have to stay home or you have to do schoolwork at home well in a lot of ways that’s what it’s like for a lot of people who are parents of special needs children they are home most of the time

there aren’t specific schools for children with special needs that are suitable and we you know I used we used to be part of our or part of an organization as an NGO but we also used to be activists in this area so I’m very versed in it there isn’t much here for children with special needs there are private places and whatnot but you know these things should be free

anyway that’s another topic right I don’t want to spoil your road trip here

this is sort of like the winding down area of the North Coast Road

I believe this is the last ascent

can’t remember I believe it’s the last ascent more or less it’s downhill descent from now right here two ways that occurs you can also park there and get a good picture of Maraval

and the golf estate

but the end of the day is crappy so no point doing that today that’s another day

I’m just glad that most of the tape was nice and sunny so you were able to capture the good parts that I saw


and as usual you know going back the other way always looks different so even if you saw

the road trip coming in

it would look totally different to you going back out
