Einen ausführlichen Benpacker Review Bericht gibt es von 2017 hier nachzulesen. Im folgenden Video gibt es einen kurzen Vergleich der neuen features vom Benpacker – nichts wirklich Weltbewegendes, aber dennoch ein paar interessante Änderungen zwischen der Version die ich 2016 im Altiplano dabei hatte und der 2017 Version.
In 2016, while crossing the high altitude deserts of South America on by foot, I read 5 books in total. Yes – real hardcover books that smell, which you can burn or give other people you meet as a present.
When talking with people about hiking deserts, I often get the question “what do you bring with you in order to be able to handle the harsh environment?”. Within this blog post, I want to introduce my Top 5 gear items I brought to the high deserts of South America.
In Part 1 of this blog posting series, we covered the aspects of planning a desert hiking trip at home. We discussed the different tools and techniques that are available and also covered the important aspects to keep in mind while planning the route. We now know how to use Google Maps, Google Earth, OpenStreetMap for our purposes and know the strengths & weaknesses of the different tools.
