Crashing on BLM land in Moab for a week, sleeping under the stars and sitting around the campfire with friends doesn’t allow time to head back to town for a charge. Long approaches with camera gear for an extended stay in the backcountry won’t permit much weight. Weight, size and usefulness are the biggest considerations for any extended stay in the backcountry, especially if you’re toting camera gear.
The monotonous hustle of getting by can sometimes drown out life. Wants become needs and we go on accumulating and acquiring. Sometimes we dream of escaping to the coast to put our feet in the sand. We imagine ourselves traveling, adventuring, and exploring.
Over the course of 2013 we were able to be there to power and support moments. The type of moments that are life changing. The kind that stick with you. We were with Eric Larsen as he tried for the South Pole on a bike. We were with Mike Libecki in Kyrgyzstan as he put up first ascents in the Tien Shan Mountains. We powered Renan Ozturk as he shot photos of Alex Honnold free soloing in the Bugaboos.
