Preview of Coming Attractions

2013/10/07

Having presented a number of articles about the Boot-Strap Expat adventure, it’s time take a sneak peek at what the adventure might look like. As an artist and wilderness lover it seems that there is always something wonderful to capture and record along the way. During previous adventures my cameras captured wonders that were inspiring to my sensibilities – from a glorious sunrise through a veil of mist rising off the water to the beauty and majesty of wildlife in the embrace of Nature.

On this adventure however, I’ll also be video recording almost everything along this transcontinental trek. I’ll still record plenty of wondrous sights and sounds along the way, but as this raw footage will become a Documentary film once we arrive in Chile, there will be a lot of mundane events shared as well. From packing for a 13,200 mile road-trip to challenges, interesting people we encounter, crises, drama and of course obstacles that arise along the way, and y’all will be able ride along with us as I post articles and videos.

Past as Prologue

The following collection will give you a glimpse of the sights, if not the sounds we’ll certainly encounter. All of these photos were taken by myself on previous adventures.

  1. These photos are magical… I especially love the one you titled ‘Dawn breaks beyond the veils of mist’. I can’t wait to see those videos and get to know Chile through your eyes and experiences. Best of luck!

    • Thanks so much. I have a lot more pics, especially nature pics that will be shared here. Believe it or not, I took most of them with my old Black Jack cell phone after giving my digital camera to my daughter.
