Back in winter 2004/2005, I hiked the White Desert (Egypt) together with an old friend – I remember it today as one of these great adventures I did when I was younger, more risk-taking and didn’t care much about details and potential outcomes. Living in the moment was key.
It took us a complete year – but finally here it is. The first official release candidate for our upcoming movie in 2019 – “May the Winds be Ever in your Favor”.

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.
One of the
bad habits of the 21st century is to drag electronic devices wherever we go – I’m not different here and I would hardly go to the desert without any technical device. Some of them I carry with me simply for security reasons (DeLorme, Phone) – some are for fun (Camera). I’m not the kind of person who leaves life-saving items at home simply because I can or it’s fancy to be oldschool – I’m pretty sure that I would heavily regret this decision once I’m in a situation where my satellite messenger is the only and last option I have and will decide whether I will live or die.
