Hello dear readers,
I hope you are all doing well despite the restrictions that affect us all around the world. For those of us who love to travel it is difficult not to be able to plan trips, with conditions and restrictions changing all the time, and often just staying in place. Here in Argentina there seem to be some improvements in some ways, but the reality is that travel is still extremely restricted. I am very thankful that I can escape to the desert and get lost for a few days. I enjoy these short off-road trips that allow me to find peace and solitude, observe wildlife, camp and hike. I designed the truck/camper exactly for that sort of adventures. I made a video of my most recent outing and I created a new series on my youtube channel to put these videos under. So the new video is the first in the “Solo Off Road Adventure” series. I spent five days off-roading and camping solo in the Andes, mostly looking for condors. I did film a few condors, and I share the whole expedition with you. It didn’t start too well when the high wind blew my camera off the tripod the first evening and my main zoom lens broke. It is early spring here and it was very windy and still cold. Anyway I won’t reveal everything but you will learn more in the video. I hope you will enjoy it. It is an adventure to drive and live alone in the mountains for several days, but it is also a lot of hard work to film yourself doing it. Once back home it took me two weeks of daily editing to put the video together. I now understand why the end credit list of a major movie is so long. There are dozens of things to think of and do, and it is at times overwhelming for just one person to do everything alone. Even though there are still several imperfections in that last video I am learning and doing my best to make each video better than the last one. Enjoy!
